    "This movie is akin to Slumdog Millionaire, except in hindi. I don't speak hindi, but found the subtitles to not distract from the excellent acting and story put forward. And, it's not your typical over the top Bollywood type film that are almost now parodies of themselves now. This is a moving story about that deals with domestic abuse and has lots of merit for the story."

    "The solution comes very close to being perfect. This movie is an independent movie that did very well in 30 countries as well as at the box office. I wish the solution had just a brief explanation of the story line. Other then that its perfect."
