VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
N/A

 

CONS –
1) A good story but terrible execution. Comedy is not Homi Adajania’s cup of tea.
2) Miscasting of good actors in half-baked roles. There are hardly good comedy scenes even with an ensemble of actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Ranvir Shorey, and Manu Rishi.
3) The Rajasthani language spoken terribly by lead characters is another weak-link in this movie.

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Both lead actresses justified the roles.
2) Sunil Grover as Dipper plays the marionettist of this story.

1) Another movie completely ruined by the trailer. Entire first-half is summarised in the trailer.
2) Third-Act is dud. The movie is forcefully trying to convey some “social message”.
