Raju’s parents teach him that knowledge gained through books will always help him and hence he is a bookworm. Raju had always been top in the class and lived up to the expectations of his parents. As he is very much studious, he doesn’t even know the simple things in life and couldn’t understand a girl’s love for him. Only when he was rejected by an MNC during an interview, he finds out that practical knowledge is a must. What is his next step? Watch the film in theaters.

Star Performance

 The film has a lot of exciting performances, as we have got a huge number of senior stars and young stars to make the film shining.


The film has a simple message that is useful for all youngsters. If you fail in your academy or career, don’t think negatively, instead try to find out the mistakes you made and correct it and the success will bend before you. This is the main concept of the film. Chetan is the right choice and he transforms neatly in the second half. Although there are a few positive points in the film, the narration is not impressive. The sidetracks are unnecessarily inserted and it affects the flow of the film. Cinematography is good. Editing should have been better. Some college scenes should have been trimmed for crispy content.

What’s There?

  • Story and the message are good
  • Performances are okayish

What’s Not There?

  • Narration should have been better with a neat screenplay
  • Editing is weak


The message is the film is good. If the screenplay had been better with an elegant narration, the movie would have attracted a large group of audiences.
