Its a very light film to watch...with amazing soundtrack
15 April 2012 | by haris-aliSee all my reviews

Prateik Babbar is an outstanding actor whose got a lot to offer. He proves in this film that he can do what ever a hero is supposed to do ACT, DANCE and FIGHT. His character in this film is a true depiction of how 20+ guys act these days. Props to the direction as well for highlighting that so well. Also Amy Jackson's performance was notably well seeing that she hasn't really done any Hindi bollywood films before.

The story on the other hand is pure yet simple love story with regular issues people face and the pace of the film matched the plot. Though I would have loved to see a bit more drama.

If your looking to see a light relaxing sort of film, this definitely falls into that category.
