The positive part of the movie is its’ screenplay. The movie can be said a remake of Mani Ratnam’s O Kadhal Kanmani in 2015. The presence of Gulzar’s dialogue have made this movie must to watch. Shraddha Kapoor has played her role quite intelligently in the movie but Aditya Roy Kapur needs much development in his acting. Veteran Actor Nasiruddin Shah is perfect for the character of Gopi Uncle and Leela Samson too has performed simply awesome as Charu aunty. It can be said that the presence of both the senior actor has made the movie more attractive and the music of A.R Rahman in this movie is a real happening one. In case you watched the Tamil version of this film then chances are there that you will find many flaws in it and if not then you will find it perfect for a one time watch.
