Watchable,but could have been better.
28 April 2019 | by moziburrahmanSee all my reviews

From the first episode i can see that the show us very much predictable.Although the acting is good the dialogue is cringe worthy. As it says in the first few minutes do not watch it,unless you have a lot of free time like me.
