  • The film is compelling in that the camera is part of the family and then part of the population. The face-on view conveys the emotion each person feels at the time, then filming from afar, you see how the problems within this family can be multiplied...

  • Sport may seem at the heart of things here, but in fact it is used merely as the competitive arena for a match between patriarchal values and an emergent spirit of greater liberation for women in today's India.

  • The running time may be short but this is a film with a lot to say. Its ending is more positive than viewers might expect, pointing beyond individual achievement to a more potent legacy.

  • The narrative in the first half lacks weight and context. The film picks up later on, and the ending is uplifting and empowering, which makes the movie worth watching at least once.
