A disappointment in the end
24 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Of late there has been a frustrating line up of movies which show a lot of potential. They start well, ride well, but somewhere along the way it seems as if...they just lost the energy to take to the right place and just give up after 60% movie is done. Its as everyone is in a hurry to pack up and go. This movie follows the same path. Starts well, shows promise, tries a few tricks..then gives up and just ends the game.

What beats me is don't they have a network of well wishers who they can run this with before subjecting the unwitting audience to this disappointment? Why?

I don't know what recommendation to give. Better just save your time and enjoy yourself while reading the comments...they are more fun than the movie.
