Star Performance

Sridevi…. the fulcrum of the film! Without her, the film couldn’t have been better. The 300th film of the star is certainly a real treat to the eyes. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Akshaye Khanna, Adnan Siddiqui and Sajal Ali have played their part perfectly.


Ravi Udyawar doesn’t seem to be a newbie. He had scripted and narrated well. Casting is really appreciable. Although the film has an age old script, the presentation and performance are simply superb. Similarly, the production values are also good.
