Not worth watching..Wasted my precious time..!
25 September 2018 | by patwaharitSee all my reviews

As fan of Shahid Kapoor I wanted to watch this movie.But after watching it I can tell the movie portrays him as typical Uttrakhandi . I don't like his ascents and his arrogant attitude . The movie's story line wasn't upto the mark and it wasn't engaging at all. Cheap comedy, Vulgar personality not affable at all. Just ignore it not worth your time..
