Aditya Roy Kapur did justice to his role. His expressions and body language are good. Similarly, Madhuri, Sanjay and Sonakshi fit in their roles well and did their best. Alia, the natural actress, had emoted excellently well. The scenes in which she got pressurized had come out really well. She emoted well with her character’s oscillating mind.
Although the story is not new, the way the team treated the film is entirely different. The director had not only showcased the relationship between two people who are in love but the father-son relationship and the teacher-student relationship. Besides these, the casting team needs a pat on its back for choosing an excellent team to perform in this complicated storyline. The cinematography is excellent and the songs too. The production designs are attractive and give a visual treat to the audiences.
