Music Direction: The film’s music is good. Songs like Tab Bhi Tu and Manwaa are already hit among the audience.
Direction: The film’s direction is good. Shoojit handles the sensitivity of the plot brilliantly. The parts shot in the hotel are sure to keep you hooked. The storyline is predictable and leaves no scope for suspense or surprise. The climax however is engaging and gets you thinking even after you exit the movie halls.
Watch Or Not: Go and watch the film for Varun Dhawan.
