27 March 2013 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Actually I did not watch movie with this kind of rating to save my movie time but I watched this one because it has only one review!! Maybe the promotional team was totally failed or their advertisement campaign was a total loss.

By the way I watched the movie with a poor opinion about the movie so my I kinda enjoyed it. The acting is not so great, plot is not unique, but there was some message in the film. Although they failed to develop message deeply. There is some inconsistency.

Overall it is an average movie, but do not expect much from the film either. If you have a lot of spare time then go for it :)
