A well made movie
15 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Stumbled upon this movie while browsing Amazon Prime. It is shocking to see tradition of "groom kidnapping" quite prevalent in Bihar & UP. All the characters played their part well ; especially the lead actors - Raj Singh Chaudhary and Swati Sen ; ably supported by Akhilendra Mishra. Vinay Pathak also played well despite a small but critical role. The story; supposed to be based on a real event is quite gripping. However;i felt that the movie ended abruptly leaving the viewer guessing about Janki's future. Also; Raghuveer's Delhi girlfriend readily aborts the baby & gets engaged to someone else.

The dialect , locale in the movie is authentic. For a first time director; Sushil Rajpal deserves credit in directing a well made movie with a gripping story line. Its a pity that such movies are not well publicized. suhas katti
