A Powerful story,Great Lively acting with a lots of feelings
23 April 2016 | by shubhranshujoshiSee all my reviews

Another mother daughter loving story after Neerja. The love and support from mother is how precious ,it has been shown very beautifully.We can relate a lots of things from our childhood memories.The headmaster acting is just awesome(by Pankaj Tripathy).He has given lots of light moments in film.It is becoming more gripping,when the girl started suspecting her mother.The collector acting is a humble one.We will love to have those officers in our society. The girl Riya Shukla's arrogant acting is a treat to eye.Ratna Pathak is always brilliant in acting.She has carried out her role very nicely.At the last Swara Bhaskar....My god I became Fan of her acting.She is fantastic , flawless, beautiful,very talented....Please go and support these great films..
