Star Performance

Farhan and Annu had done a fantastic job and their chemistry has worked out well. The rest of the cast have done their job decently.


The film that had been shot ten years back had got its release now. The film seems to be outdated. However, character designing is good. As it is a new script, it looks interesting, but the screenplay is not much impressive. The cinematography is not as impressive as we could witness a lot of shaky captures. Although the film is less than two hours, it makes the viewer feel a bit long.

What’s There?

  • The chemistry between Farhan and Annu
  • Different script

What’s Not There?

  • Screenplay and cinematography are unimpressive
  • Improperly designed scenes in the film make the audiences feel it a lengthy film


 Although it released a decade old, the film has fresh characters and good chemistry between the artists. It has an equal number of pros and cons. If we avoid those cons and watch the film for the performance of the leads, it could be watched once!
