Excellent plot, flawless direction, Heart wrenching story
9 July 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I would like to congratulate the cast and crew of this movie for having an excellent and aesthetic creation in these days. Honestly speaking, i am really inspired by the perfect PLOT and the performance of all characters even RITESH's wife also did great work. The direction has no flaws , the story is novel plus the expressions of Shraddha and Ritesh have made this film more than ordinary. I am sorry the cardinal and most important role in the film was played by Sidharth but he was unable to show real expressions where they were needed the most. Otherwise, his revenge-taking scenes were superb. The role of Shraddha proved to be a FRESH BREEZE in the film and all the scenes related to her were life-giving.Especially her dialogues and the way she delivered them and her philosophy about life and death was worth noting. Ritesh once again by his unique expressions looted the show. Overall, the film was much more than expectations. So hats off to the director, writer and the entire team.
