    An old-fashioned soaper that will please or not, depending on a viewer's tolerance for schmaltz.
  2. While the film sometimes plays like an hour TV medical drama padded to reach feature length, Sawant achieves touching, naturalistic performances from a fine ensemble cast.
  3. The simplicity of the tale becomes a bit tedious.
  4. 30
