Hey Sinamika's biggest problem is that the audience shares Mouna's distaste for the unbearable Yaazhan. Viewers may find themselves just as desperate as Mouna to escape Yaazhan, as well as this two-and-a-half-hour talk-fest. The man stops the poor milkman to engage in a monologue on "the logic of milk bottles." People run from him when they see him coming. The movie somehow tries to suggest that the insufferable Yaazhan is a great catch and that Mouna is problematic and faulty for not recognizing his greatness, a premise every living, breathing woman will reject outright.

Most frustrating is Mouna's continuing refusal to tell Yaazhan outright that she can't stand him and that she wants a divorce. This makes her pretty annoying, too. The movie is an hour too long at best, and it becomes only more ridiculous when, without any reason offered, Mouna changes her mind and wants the intolerable man back.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
