Waste of Money
1 December 2014 | by (Trivandrum, India) – See all my reviews

If you enjoyed the trailer then trust me be happy with that because that was the best possible way the movie could be previewed.

About one fourth into the film, I was wondering how much longer would I have to take this. I dozed off a couple of times also.

Pathetic story. Whatever few seconds of footage you may enjoy are already used in the trailer and there are several minutes of crap in between each dialog as seen in the trailer. So don't even hope to enjoy that as well.

Nothing worth even mentioning on the plus side. Don't waste your time and money on this one.
