Analysis

The storyline of the film was great, enjoyable, and dramatic –the film focus on the importance of street smartness.

The costume design was brilliant. The background music and songs play a significant role in the movie. The dialogues were excellent. The script was great but not well executed.  The comic elements were good. The story seems to be expected. The character development was poorly portrayed. At a certain point in time, the film becomes boring. The dramatic elements were enjoyable. There was a great flow in the storyline but not well executed.

What’s There?
