Movie Review: The film gives an important message to society but the screenplay works in bits and pieces. The makers have shown a compelling plot in a mediocre way. The first half of the film is very promising but the second half failed to make much impact, the vague narration didn’t justify the story of underprivileged child’s struggles.
Adil Hussain has given a brilliant performance. Sanjay Suri, Shubham Jha, and Priyanka Bose delivered a good performance.
