Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –
1) Santanu Ghatak as Sanjay
2) Vijay Maurya as “Baaghi”

 

 

Cons –
1) Stale & long first half where the movie is taking too much time to built up. 140 minutes for this average story is anyhow long.
2) The impending scene where the main character should berserk out her frustration is missing.

DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –
1) This “odd-couple-road-movie” plot is driven mainly by the talents of Irrfan Khan & Parvathy
2) “Tanha Begum” – a modern rendition of “Babul Mora” during the opening credit
3) All the fun built up in the first half fizzled out in the second half.

 

 

Cons –
1) Mediocre third act and mild climax – as expected from so-called director Tanuja Chandra.

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

 

1) It was supposed to be a Irrfan’s show but Deepak Dobriyal pipped him in this photo-finish.

Cons –

1) Amrita Singh’s half-baked character
2) A better climax was possible than the usual clichéd rant against the system
