VERDICT – 3/5

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

 
CONS –
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”.

VERDICT – 5/5

 

 

PROS –
1) The adventures of Khaalujaan and Babban continues while they are escaping Mushtaq and the police. Perfect execution of a mediocre story. A treat for Urdu aficionados.
2) The soundtrack (classical and some old Hindi hits). The best one is Hamari Atariya by Rekha Bhardwaj
3) The excellent supporting cast (Vijay Raaz as Jaan and Manoj Pahwa as Italwi)
4) Mushtaq Bhai quoting Batman.

 

CONS –
N/A
