  • apexa's rating of the film Meaning

    Great acting from Shabana and Smita and while I liked the storyline of Shabana's character seeking ultimately self-fulfillment independently, the near lack of criticism to the man in the relationship really hinders the film. Unsurprising since it's autobiographical to Bhatt's life.
