Ruined by sentimentality
29 November 2015 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

Simple story here. A very pregnant woman decides to take her seriously debilitated and Alzheimer stricken mother to visit the mothers sister. She needs help moving the wheelchair confined mother into and out of the automobile. So she starts asking for help from friends and family. 'No' is heard all around, as usual everyone is too busy. The only relief the pregnant woman gets is from here GPS system named 'GOPAL' in the auto. The GOPAL has all the best lines in the movie. Finally her sister reluctantly decides to help with their disabled mother. Even upon arriving at the aunts house (the mothers sister) the pregnant woman discovers she has been lied to by her aunt. The aunt claimed she was injured and could not come to visit her disabled sister.

This little indie movie is actually cute and funny to a point. The GOPAL voice is fun, her day is full of misdirection and tending to the stinky needs of the elderly mother. Then for some strange reason the director, Jenica Bergere, turns the story into sweet sentimental reunion between sisters, mother, and aunt. What started as a slightly off-color comedy ended with saccharine poured all over it.
