Analysis: Ashutosh Gowarikar has written the story by doing extensive research. Still, some factual errors are present in this. During half of the film, it does not create much interest about historical things and romance. At the last of the script, the flow goes slowly.

He gives complete justice to his role in this movie as expected from his side.Talking about, Pooja Hedge performance she also tried well, but she can do better than this. We can leave her off as it was her debut film and the role was less as compared to Hrithik Roshan. The role of all supporting actors played well.

What’s not there?
