One of the CRAPPIEST and MOST BORING movies I watched!!
19 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I can't believe this was directed by Anurag Kashyap. The entire movie is just plain boring and nobody seem to be emoting or acting including KK Menon. Anushka Sharma is wasted in a role with sucking music and songs.

If you want to watch a movie well made portraying olden days, go watch "Detective Byomkesh Bakshi" instead - it is amazing.

Stay away from this movie if you want to save frustration and annoyance. Unless you are sleep deprived and want to catch a nap, this will give you a good nap. You will keep asking yourself, when it will be over.

One of the crappiest movies I've ever watched. Over 2 hours wasted that I can never get back. I can't believe people are rating this movie with 10 stars. Such people never watched great art movies in their lives.
