Priya disagreed with the rating and said:
It may have 2 female friends who talk about many other things but this movie is a complete disaster to women. It goes around the notion that the ultimate object of a woman's life is to be like her husband/fiance wants her to be. i.e without a shred of her own individuality.

The test isn't about whether it's female-friendly or feminist. The test is "do females talk about something other than a man." You disagreed with the fact that this movie passes the test while telling us explicitly that it passes the test.
