Family Review | A Community Study That Demanded a Sharper Ending

Among the list of films that Don Palathara has already made (and I have watched), I would say, Family stays at the bottom of the list. While others sort of win you over with their politics or craft, here, the intended criticism felt a bit less sharp.
