On one fine day, Sara found herself pregnant and how Jeevan, Sara, and their family members cope up with this issue is the remaining part of Sara’s.
Anna Ben in the titular role was a revelation. While she got lovely yet limited expressions, her tresses were a major attraction that cannot be denied. She has aptly displayed the emotions and feelings in a subtle but strong manner that made Sara’s a wonderful treat to watch.
Sunny as Jeevan does an excellent job in a heroine-oriented film without any signs of overplaying his character which was the most positive feature of the film.
Other actors too fared well in their respective characters especially Mallika Sukumaran as Jeevan’s mother has done exceptionally well.
