Brilliant movie. Great acting...
30 January 2016 | by prakash-prajapatiSee all my reviews

Brilliant movie. great active, great direction. Nothing is missing in. Complete love story, sports movie, thriller, comedy, glamor and much more. I would rate it as Madhavan's best active ever. Female character ( Ritika singh) is fabulous. First time i got to know there is such actor in industry. I was forced to search her name after being impressed by her acting. Jalli pataka was awesome, Superb dance. Simple but best choreography. This does not mean all other actors did not well. every single character of this move did best. Very nicely covered pain of non-cricket sports in India. how badly and from which class they are coming. There are many such in India who can bean international champions but not happening, you can see in this move how and why ?.
