Wat a heck of a movie !!!!! for a teenager like me going and seeing the movie two times in a row and STILL feeling unsatisfied is something really AWESOME !!!! Reallyy loved the movie, from the touchy background scores to the straightforward dialogs !!!!!! Dulquar has opened a new chapter for himself with this movie and i am bloody sure he is gonna embark this movie as the MILESTONE in his career !!!! At the end of the day, there is,i feel, nothing in this film that you would feel"COULD HAVE IMPROVED" kinds... "A MUST WATCH MOVIE" for all of those people who have been looking out for a rejuvenating experience !!!! ENJOYY !!!!
