Movie review: Irrfan Khan once again proved why he is called a complete actor. Irfan performed very well the character of a father and husband. Saba Qamar did not let it appear at all that this is her first Hindi movie. Deepak Dobriyal has done a fairly intense and excellent performance and has presented different acting styles. The work of all the other artists is good.
The film’s direction is very good and shooting is almost done at real locations. Cinematography and drone camera shots are also excellent. Saket Chaudhary’s career is also going to be the best with this movie. The story of the film is quite simple but with the comedy elements his work has been shown very well. There are many moments in the movie you will remember till the end like, Deepak Dobriyal’s mosquito and landlord scenes, Saba’s waste water filling scene, Piya’s Jerry Sena, Irfan’s last and periodically comic-serious scenes. In a way this comedy drama is particularly designed to curb the debate for Hindi-English.
The music and background score of the film is good and runs along with the story. The Sachin–Jigar duo has given good music and Amar Mohile has composed a great background score.
