A perfect blend of reality and humor.
21 January 2018 | by nelldrSee all my reviews

The movie was a perfect blend of reality and humor. Most of us we can relate ourselves with the jokes of the movie because those are the simple things which we do in life among close friends, this is the point why the script feels real and lively. The enthusiasm of a young cadet, desperation to get a girl and at the end the commitment shown in the movie is very precisely depicted. Loved it to the core. At the beginning the movie was all humor and fun but amidst that scenario the later is able to draw us into a serious crime fighting zeal with the flow of strong emotions. Apart from that the reality the script is able to associate with the reluctance of bureaucratic measures are precised. Hence a perfect blend of reality and humor.
