     Best family movie ever 25 January, 2013 On
    This is the best family movie ever I have seen. This film should be shown to all the children and families. It shows family values should be respected.

  2.  Struck a chord somewhere 30 January, 2013 On
    Watched this one on a long flight from the US to Dubai. The story of a mother / wife being taken for granted by her family did strike an uncomfortable chord somewhere. Have seen this happen in so many families, and perhaps several of us may have been guilty ourselves. The movie narrative itself is simple and punctuated with some great humor and memorable one-liners. Sridevi has acted well, so have some of the unknown actors in the support cast.

  3.  good for women 16 May, 2013 On
    I just loved this movie, its a motivational movie. This is especially for women who don't know English and who are eager to learn it. And its all about women... what kind of situation she faces with her family & children & society.
    It also shows entrepreneurial skills of women. One of the best stories that most of the women face in their life.
    This movie can encourage many women who are willing to learn and make history :)..
