Flying under clouds!!!

The film is truly spectacular on the account of visuals. The production design is one of greatest in recent Hindi films. The sets, the artistic props, the designing is really commendable. With great production design, comes greatest in cinematography. Kudos to Savita Singh's cinematography brilliance that made this film looks totally a visual treat. Seriously, I have not seen such beautiful frames in recent times, without VFX. The basic concept was well thought too.

But, with all these superb things in hand, the film doesn't able to make to what it could be. The screenplay got messed up in the film's way to make it under historical event. Yeah, it could have been one of the greatest film in Hindi film industry. But, it all lacks at film's narrative part. The characters been so melodramatic about each situation makes a regular Hindi film, which it should not be.

The director looses his brilliant idea by indulging more of a melodramatic romantic recipe into it. The film paces up in between, dialogue teaches us good. But, when the flight tries to be up high, it gets lost in the romantic clouds. It sees a great potential journey suffering from jet-lag here.

It should be pure epic exploring the core idea more, yet it is somewhat inspirational.
