its meaningful and pretty contextual for the time-frame it provides.

Movies have told to be barometer of our times. This is one of those movies. Look at when this movie came up, this movie came up in 1987 which means it probably was started in 1983-1984 which is where lot of families became nuclear families. Remember this was when we were still fighting the hindu rate of growth, i.e. 3-4% annually and that used to be on a good year.

Some of the reasons were pointed out above but the biggest ones was freedom and ability to take your own decisions rightly or wrongly and deal with the consequences.

If you were to read the politics of that time, this was a hot political issue. Today if the same things were to happen, I doubt somebody would have the courage to make a similar movie today.
