Brilliant Beginning and excellent ending but something missing
The movie starts off excellently and grasps your attention. Professor who wants to kill himself but couldn't and assigns the task of killing him to a student for clearing his grades. It has some wonderful scenes explaining how the professor could not kill himself and has some excellent thoughts on life and death through his dialogues. This caught the attention immediately and kept me on the edge of the seat. It goes slow thereafter bringing various twists and turns during the course of the story. A greedy and mafia money lender, a brilliant but unemployed friend, mechanic friend and girlfriend. It gives various dimension to the story. But these dimensions and twists/turns makes the movie a little slow and slightly lengthy. The casting was wonderful and has some excellent dialogue (I took help of subtitle). The ending too has a sweet twist. Overall great performances, casting, music, screenplay. You will not regret seeing once.
