People are not entirely good or entirely bad, this is a model movie that portrays a man doing the right thing in the wrong way. On one hand he is trying to provide for his family and climb up the ranks but on the other hand he does morally wrong things and neglects his family in the process. He is a man we can relate to and in this movie we become invested in him neither hating him nor loving him but sympathizing with him.
Something unexpected happens and our investment becomes even heightened, we cry, laugh and cry all over again. You see happiness, sadness and pure life in this movie - well acted. It is also nice to see marriage portrayed in all it's ups and downs without adding too much drama other than that of unexpected life.
I loved this movie and would recommend it!
