I like how in this review, you observe the love between the two shown through their actions for each other. The irony is that the same lack of actions in support of each other during the time they needed it most ends up breaking down the relationship. Love is needed to grow a relationship but it should be demonstrated even more during testing times in a relationship. Instead, here Shukumar and Shoba who turned to each other in joy, turn away from each other in their grief. Consequently, the distance between them grows and with no loss to lessen their impact, the relationship becomes meaningless.
