Intoxicating, Brilliant, Inspirational, and Multi-Layered- what films are meant to be
Wow- what an incredible movie! There are so many layers to this film. one could almost see it 4 times and get something new out of it every time.

Ranvir handles his role with such ease that it's hard to judge whether his acting or directing of Anurag is the greater accomplishment He stands as a challenge to his conscience when he finds the correct answer in his heart Ranvir seems a natural for this role. Like he didn't even have to act, he just let his own emotions take charge. He stole every scene when He was on. Anurag Basu(Director) was given his best in direction and screenplay. I'm requesting you all just go and watch this movie. It would be one of your best movie. Watch it.. Watch it.. Watch it..
