Star Performance

Sushant Singh Rajput had delivered good performance as a naughty young guy. He had emoted well in the century old sequence too. Kriti has done justice to the role offered to her.


Although the story seems to be a new genre to Bollywood, these kinds of stories had already hit the South Indian film industries. “ Devathai,” a fantasy thriller directed by “ Nassar” released in 1997. The film has the similar script. We don’t know from where the makers got the inspiration. We could say that Dinesh Vijan had not used the talent of Sushant, well.

What’s There?

  • Sushant has done his part neatly
  • Kriti has shaped up her acting skills, well
  • Cinematography is excellent

What’s Not There?

  • Although he performs well, Jim’s dialogues are penniless and irritates the audiences
  • Scripting is not up to the mark
  •  Direction is not perfect


We could just say that the film is sound on the technical side rather than the script and direction. Sushant could have chosen a better film than Raabta. The film has shattered the expectations after Sushant’s MS Dhoni biopic.
