When an incident changes their lives drastically, bringing the two women under the same roof, they find themselves putting to test an unusual situation; can two mothers make a home?
I have to say this movie took me by surprise with how wonderful it was. It had be laughing and smiling then tearing up and boo-hooing. It is the Indian version to the American movie Stepmom, but for some reason We Are Family made me cry. Now I have to go add it to my movies that made me cry list.
A W F U L. This Bollywood adaptation of Stepmon is ridiculous. And the music does not help at all.
Emotional Bollywood flick showing how a family copes with their mother having cancer. Shame it did not go down the realism route but typical Bollywood tear-jerker.
If I wanted to watch Stepmom, I would have watched Stepmom.
