Not worth it
15 April 2017 | by yasachandraSee all my reviews

There is simply no buildup of any character or situation. The entire movie is like watching a huge trailer. The basic story and plot is good but a lot of overacting by Kunal and unrealistic scenarios are all just too much to absorb. I didn't expect this, given the popularity this movie has gained. I couldn't even stand it for an hour. So in my opinion, don't watch it, you'll only waste your time.
