Movie review:

Manisha Koirala’s acting is very good and she is totally involved in Maya’s character. At the same time, the acting of Shreya Chaudhary, Madiba Imam is also appealing. The rest of the cast also did a good job. The film’s music and background score are good. The film’s direction and locations, as well as camera work and cinematography, are amazing. Shimla is a very good location for shooting. The first half of the film is fine, but in the second half, the story is quite scattered. After a time it seems that it is being extended forcibly. The story would have been crisper. The end of the film could have been even better. Also, Manisha Koirala was not used well, her character could have been scarier.

What’s Good:

  • Manisha Koirala is the glue holding this film.
  • The 2 girls acting was impressive
  • songs.

What’s Bad:

  • Sluggish Pace
