The Gist Of The Story:
It presents individual tales of 8 struggling women who face the difficulty to move ahead in life.Aparna, being a mother wishes for her daughter to achieve those goals which remained unachievable for her.Mangai had a dream of becoming a Doctor and marrying the man she loved had to end up becoming a sacred woman giving away all her desires.Nirmala’s utmost love made her sacrifice the most precious gift of her life just to bring a bunch of happiness in Bano’s life. The story of Anu and Archana’s sisterly love and affection made them take decisions for themselves to see their loved ones happy.Parvati proved to be a daughter who was equal to ten sons.The story of Alamelu and Laksmi points out the difference in their characters and nature but seems to be each other’s linking pin in order to keep the members happy and united.
The story is written quite well though there were some parts were parts where the story dragged a bit but overall it is a one time read for sure.
My overall ratings- 4/5
