Majid never disappoints
13 August 2018 | by vikram-pathaniaSee all my reviews

This is not among Majid's best works but it is still very watchable and heads and shoulders above most Bollywood films. It is a moving story of two families whose lives get entwined after a desperate girl injures an obsessed man whilst defending herself. Majid is a genius at weaving moments of hope and joy amidst a bleak backdrop. The acting is top notch and Ishaan emotes well - a solid start for a debutant. The movie fared poorly at the box office as is often the case for little gems with no 'face value'. Ishaan is a newcomer and Majid is not known outside the festival circuit in India. Thank goodness for Netflix though - it provides a platform for such movies to reach a much wider audience.
