Star Performance

Gajraj had performed excellently well and he is the top runner in the performance and the next place goes to Neena. She depicted the role perfectly, as per the script. Ayushmann and the other stars have done what is needed for their roles. Surekha Sikri had also done her best.


The director had beautifully narrated the film, how the middle-age pregnancy makes the people have different feelings.  When the romance is accepted, the pregnancy is not, is the main theme by the team. The screenplay is perfect and the script too. Cast selection is appreciable, as the casting team had picked each and every artist amazingly well. The songs and the BGM are fantastic and reflect the mood of the story. The cinematography and the editing are also good.
