It felt a little surface level. I don't have the words to describe how. The only real tool that was used very frequently was foreshadowing. Overall, the story was well executed and depicted what happens to pretty much anyone who strives for just greed related matters in life.
A great exploration of what it actually means to be disabled, and whether that actually means you are "lesser" or not. I personally believe that a disabled person is not lesser in any way no matter what their disability is.
This movie does take on a pretty negative perspective of India. There are much more positive aspects of India. However, most of what was described in the film is accurate. The socio-political and class dynamics are quite accurately depicted. The only issue is that this whole story is quite a dark story showing mainly the negative sides of Indian culture when there are also many many positive sides to Indian culture.
An immaculate description between the dynamics of men and women. This description of how men and women are will be forever true--sadly: that women are complicit in letting men misunderstand them and that men are complicit in never being able to understand their partner completely. This is still a very important story--even in the era of the #MeToo movement. One note though is that this description is applicable to, more generally, society rather than a specific person; however, it could be applicable to people themselves rather than the public as a group but that depends on the person. People today are still very ignorant and in denial of certain things generally...
I saw it many years ago. The drama in the film didn't exactly climax. There was a climax and a problem but it didn't get resolved. It was a weirdly organized film. The ending also had the maid flirting with the husband. It was overall a jumbled movie that could have been done better.
A touching heartfelt film. More people should see this film--especially the racist people within the U.S. should watch it. It truly shows how there is no difference between any race, and it shows how redemption is earned by hard work.
