Movie review:

Arjun Kapoor’s work is comfortable and he is fit to play Madhava. Their point of talking is also good. Looking at the work of actor Vikrant Mussi, who was touted as Arjun’s friend, it can be said that he will get more projects in the future. Shraddha Kapoor’s work is also good and the rest of the cast also done their full contribution to the movie.

The film’s direction is good. Locations are also amazing. Cinematography, camera work is also great. The story of the film is quite predictable and weak, which progresses in such a way that it starts boredom. Earlier, Chetan Bhagat’s novels have been transformed into films, but this film has not been able to make that level. The kind of cinema that was waiting was not found. As an audience, Jai has been asking the same question about what is the purpose behind creating such a film, in which the purpose of the activities of the actress is not understood. Someone is moving away from the family so nobody loves it Nobody is ready to tell the reason. The music is not that excellent.

What’s Good:

  • Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor chemistry is the heart and soul of this film
  • First half was good
  • Music is the best thing and added advantage for the film

What’s Bad:

  • Second half lack of pace 
  • Poor screenplay
  • Fast story narration
  • Arjun and Shraddha failed to lift the speed of this slow story
  • Arjun’s Bihari accent
