Ahmed and Jyoti are head over heels in love with each other. They wanted to get married, but they knew well that their parents would never allow them to get married, as they belong to different religions. So, the couple decides to elope and get married. Knowing about this, Jyoti’s granny engages Dagar, a hitter, to bring back her granddaughter. What happens when they get caught? Were their lives spared? The rest of the film deals with this.

Star Performance

Bobby Deol, Vikrant Massey, and Sanya Malhotra had put a lot of effort into making their characters real. Vikrant Massey and Sanya Malhotra make an excellent pair on-screen. Their chemistry is fantastic. Raj Arjun played a supporting role, and he did what was needed for his role.


The story is simple and predictable. The specialty is with the performances of the stars. The plot rolls around love, inter-religious marriages, and honor killings. The film has nothing new to offer, except for the performances. There are many logical loopholes we could easily notice. At a certain point, the police vanish, and there is no further investigation. Similarly, the killer roams here and there as if he has not done anything wrong. The BGM and visuals are good. The editing is perfect, and the film is a 100-minute film to satisfy the audience, who want to watch neither a lengthy movie nor a short film.

What’s There?

  • The performances of the stars are neat

What’s Not There?

  • Logical loopholes spoil the movie’s run
  • A simple story without any twists


Though the film comes with a predictable plot, weak screenplay, and logical mistakes, the stars' performances make it watchable once!
