Rajesh Krishnan helmed both section of the movie made his directorial debut for bollywood. He has done a recommendable job. Script is nicely written from the angle of a common man. A number of characters are there but the writer has shown his command over his writing and gives every character a particular value. That is why even a small character is remains in mind of the audience after watching the movie.
The movie is a comedy drama and it is full of comedy and drama. The comedy is most of the time situational and not forced. This is the plus point of the writer and director.
The entire movie runs with a steady pace and does not make us bore at any place. Every character is beautifully written so that their connection with each other can be easily established by a common man who watches movie for the purpose of entertainment only without giving a damn thought over creativity of the director.
This is the strongest point of the movie. Every character has done so well as such they are actually doing all these. Kunal Khemu as Nandan Kumar is extraordinary good. As a lower middle class man who wants to live a happy live with his wife and son. He has played his character with ease and proves his dazzling acting skills.
Rasika Dugal as a wife of a middle class man depicts the real expressions of a typical housewife. She does her part beautifully. Aryan Prajapati as Ayush, son of Nandan, gets a small role but he also has done a good job.
Now, the three big bulls; Ranvir Shorey, Vijay Raaz and Gajrao Rao. Extremely talented actors have added a new feather to their wings. Their talent needs no remarks. Vijay Raaj’s unique style of dialogue delivery impress the audience and this time he link up everything with animals because he watches the Nat Jeo tv channel and asks his goons too to watch the same channel.
Gajraj’s exclusive way threatening to the person and then covers it up with the gig is remarkable. Ranvir Shorey as a greedy cop has done justice to his role.
Songs have not been stuffed in the movie that makes it healthier to watch it till the end. There are three songs in the movie out of which two songs appear in the background and lead the story ahead.
In short the movie is a complete package of healthy entertainment and can be watched with your entire family.
IMDB users rate the movie 8 out of 10. Bollywood Products also agrees to the same and given even a better rating 8.5 out of 10.
