Good and Light Movie.. after Tannu Wedds Mannu series..
24 August 2016 | by chintanparmarSee all my reviews

A small yet impactfull movie.. Yet another typically arranged marriage escaping movie but very well executed.

A good story line, which I guess never been told before.

A good Indo-Pak relation is proposed to be set in days to come in the history of both the countries.

All actors have played their best of work.

Jimmy has played as always a less spoken person but very very very amazingly talented and power-pack performance...

Abhay also managed to justify his role very well..

Diana has very well tried but still lot of missing things were there in her performance, In-fact I am not convinced with the idea of casting Diana in this movie. A very dull performance given by LEAD actress..

Music is amazingly good.. Songs are too good..

In a way the movie is such a good that hides a poor performance of Diana.. All NINE stars are given by me is for movie except DIANA..

I think a squeal is needed for HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI, but not with DIANA PANTY...

Good job DONE...
