Simply effective !

Margarita with a straw is an effective film with multiple layers . You don't feel the need to be empathetic towards Laila the protagonist . It's almost as if Laila has given us permission to peep into her life ! The film has its simple enjoyable moments. And the ending uses a metaphor that is almost universal . Kalki is brilliant , Revathy is perfect and the casting is just right !
