When his life goes in a complicated way, a shocking situation makes him more complicated. Govinda’s wife Gauri is found dead, and all the eyes are looking at him, suspected. What happened to Gauri, and how was she dead? The rest of the film deals with it.

Star Performance

Vicky Kaushal has done a fantastic job. In fact, it is a new role in his career so far. Bhumi Pednekar is mesmerizing as ever. Kiara is neat with her role. Renuka Shahane, the incredible artist, had never failed to impress the audience. She has done her role exceptionally well. Amey Wagh and Trupti Khamkar added some excitement to the movie’s flow.


The characters are well-designed, and the right players are fixed to the roles. All the stars fit well in the roles, and Renuka’s physically challenged role added some grip to the story. However, some scenes related to Bhumi and Vicky should have been penned a bit elaborately. The BGM is neat, and the songs are foot-tapping. The costumes are good, and so is the production design. The visuals are neat too.

What’s There?

  • Good screenplay and execution
  • The performances are appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • Certain portions needed a better writing


The film has a mixture of all emotions. It has a lot of comedy, twists, and confusion too. So if you want to watch a jolly kind of movie without much logic, you can pick this one for this weekend!
