Good story. Acting?
14 August 2018 | by bhadoriyasumitSee all my reviews

The story is Very good the Cinematography along with location is very Good, but acting is what has been greatly Compromised. Which is too Visible and it does not allow you to get submerged into the Flim. It has Four story anthology.
