The story deals with the value of time. How a child is beaten up by his alcoholic father for small things is dealt in the film. The tortures and unpleasant experiences make the child grow with the psychiatric problems. Hiten Pintal plays Shashank, the protagonist. After completing his education, Shashank gets a job. Although Shashank seems to be an ordinary man, his childhood nightmares torture him. He falls in love with a girl named Shivangi (Hrishita Bhatt), who works with him in the office. Shivangi is a punctual person. She doesn’t know that Shashank could turn a rough guy when she insists him to be punctual. His childhood memories were intensified by Shivangi’s conditioned love. Shashank faces serious problems, due to it. To get rid of the nightmares, Shashank decides to play a game called 30 Minutes. Although the game is entertaining and thrilling, it is dangerous too. When Shashank is asked to complete a task within 30 minutes, his inner lubber wakes up and kills the people who flout him. Watch the film to know the interesting climax!

Star Performances

Performances of all the stars are good. The leads Hrishitaa Bhatt and Hiten Paintal keep the story alive.


Yesudas BC has directed and produced the film. Although the script is good, the screenplay is not interesting. Split personality has been touched upon by Bollywood and this film doesn’t seem to make a mark.

What’s there?

  • Good performance by the female lead
  • The film has an appreciable script
  • Editing is done perfectly
  • Background score is quite okay

What’s not there?

  • The screenplay is not impressive
  • Direction by Yesudas BC has a lot of loopholes •
  • The social message which they want to deliver is not done properly
  •  The twist is unfolded even before the people understand it.


Although the script and performance are good, direction and screenplay have brought a huge drawback to the film. Only a few scenes seem to be sensible. If you have no other film left to watch, you could watch this.
