A beautiful movie
3 May 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

There is satirical humor between two soldiers. The movie beautifully touches upon your emotions in a typical Gulzar style with a lot of humor great dialogues. This movie has no big sets but yes a good direction flawless execution with only 4 people in the movie who have a done a fantastic job .

Specially for those who want to utilize their time and end up appreciating the movie . Not for people who love movies like Rowdy Rathore or Gunday etc. Its for people who loved Peepli live or Paan Singh Tomar .

I would highly recommend to you to watch this movie and end up being happy about the Indian cinema and the debut direction by Vijay Raaz
