The synopsis of the movie warned a tearful watching experience. Anticipation is one thing , the experience is another - yes, it was very tear-jerking , realistic, beautiful presentation.
There is a malayalam movie 'Aakashadoothu' that addresses the same theme of a dying mother arranging for her kids' adoption. That movie ranks as stupid after experiencing this one. If this one is a 10/10 , that would be a 2/10 , if this one is barcelona, that one is a mohan bagan.
When someone is forced into a tough situation, he/she works on it and learns to handle it inspite of all the odds. People around react to her. Life goes on too - that is how the movie ends. That is how it should ideally be - the willpower of the protagonist should drive her son's life forward and that is what happens.
The young vibrant positive mother makes all the right decisions for the boy. She has a very responsible challenge in front of her - finding the right parents. She does not go easy on the decision - does very detailed study , weighs out every single aspect emotionally and smartly. Very inspiring.
People around her support her for most. Various people in various ways - very realistic true responses.Detailed heartfelt conversations all through the movie fabric - very open , very true - no flak , nothing to cut through, just the essence.
The mother, the son , the new parents, every one of the protagonists have done great work as actors. Editing is perfect. The use of the camera focussing to impress the head-ache that the mother goes through works very well.
The movie will make you value the people in your life more.
