A good movie. One wld be able to identify with it better if she has been brought up in a male chauvinistic male-dominated family. A constant attempt is made to subjugate, subordinate and subdue a girl in such a family. Obedience for the sake of obedience with no rhyme or reason is expected of such a girl. And a girl who dares to question is termed as a bad, ill- mannered daughter. A girl is always treated different from the boys of the family, she has to get accustomed to do mean jobs even at a very young age as that is her future in her In Laws' place ..... Adjustment is the Euphemism used.. Ha ha ha

Of such families r products like me formed with an allergy to authority & the faintest signs of attempted subordination or possible domination.
There is almost a wild rebuttal instinct formed as the realisation has early dawned that but for self protection ... one wld be made a door mat just as much effortlessly, by one's very own.

This movie made me realise that being in India in the ages and in the family that I belonged to, one has been made very tough due to the circumstances thrust upon.

The Validity and the Probability of the movie in Reality is questionable. Too much of politics is involved in the country for it to be made possible.

But when it comes to doing duties towards the parents it is equally shared whereas the rights to question and enjoy belongs to the Family's SON. People in my country have not developed any brains and r still blind inspite of seeing for fact that most sons go and hide behind their wives leaving their responsibilities to their sisters ..... They perhaps believe that their son wld not do it only to made a fool later.

And so the childless have started preferring daughters to sons and they adopt girls. Ofcourse this cannot be said of all sons and daughters but a majority. There r also sons who let down their wives and support their parents and parents who ill treat their sons in relation to daughters.

What is required is a balance and a via media which i see a long way coming.
