A Must see for all
11 June 2012 | by (Delhi) – See all my reviews

Prashant Nair has done a wonderful job as the Director of the film. One would not like to blink an eye throughout ,least you miss out on something...:).....A captivating film with an excellent story line and talented cast. The director has captured the true spirit of Delhi life and one gets to see and experience some great everyday Delhi situations hands on. The movie has an excellent moral to it and will leave you thinking seriously on a lot of social issues and about nouveau-riche Delhi crowd. Each and every character has done true justice to his/ her role. A must see...a different film which may not be a typical Bollywood masala film, but something which touches your soul.
