Goofs

The place (surya's building) where all the friends gather and tease passersby you can see a window with a scenic view exactly before Mukund and Surya are talking about "sakhardande", but later when they are leaving for school, one can clearly see a green screen that is used for special effects.

An amazing movie
17 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I am reacting to the review of "pushkarjsh88". I wasted 5 precious minutes of my life reading your comments. This is one of the best film i have ever seen. But after reading your comments i can understand what pathetic life you are living man. I guess your favorite films would be in the lines of Bodyguard, Ready and so on. So please spare us all your disgusting reviews and get a life man. And one important thing watch some good movies, that's what this site is for, getting info about good movies. And please don't even bother to comment on this. Now something about the movie. I think you wont regret watching this movie at all. All my childhood memories came back through this film. Amazing performance by all the characters. Amazing direction, music everything. I would suggest please watch this movie, you thoroughly enjoy it.
