Sacrifices towards a goal

IMDB 7.5/10
A couple feels that it is time for them to go for the pilgrimage. It all started well as they have some savings and bit by bit, the goal seemed achievable. Nevertheless, the reality is different. Interestingly, even though this is not a Bollywood production, there are still songs in some scenes but no dances though. I'll give this a 7.5/10

My impressions:

A chance conversation
Triggers the desire
The long kept dream, ambition
To go for that journey
That every Muslim must perform
If he is able

The if word
Can they afford it
Where will they get the funds

They do have some savings
But it is not sufficient
Other sources have to be found

Others want to help
But they will stick to the rules
It has to be their own savings
Before they embark on the journey

It might not be today
It can be in the future
There is always tomorrow
