Simple yet Beautiful..!
30 December 2013 | by rameshmanjunathSee all my reviews

Watched this film in BIFFES (2013)Bangalore International Film Festival and it was very much worth it. The leading lady looks really beautiful and has given very good performance in this movie. The movie revolves around Claudia and how she becomes a part of a family whom she doesn't even relate to(by blood).

Its an ordinary story of a family and a woman with stellar performances and direction. The music compliments the movie and offers good viewing experience.

The synopsis has already been given, so i wont dig into the story part. An average poor or middle class family with different types of Characters and the way Claudia handles situations. Circumstances and situations make it like Claudia needs them and they needs Claudia. Very good direction and good performances to look out for.
