The music in the film is of Tanishq Bagchi, Rochak Kohli and Arjun Harjaee lyrics is nicely writtenand the songs of Adhis Verma and Meer A Karwa & Rangdaari have a very good turn out.
Story, Story, screenplay, dialogues: -
The story of the film and sscreenplay is written by Ranjit Tiwari and Aseem Arora and must admit they've delivered their work so beautifully .Since the film has very real dialogue and the film is based on true events and written powerfully .
Direction and other Technical aspects: -
This is the first film on Ranjit Tiwari, a director with strength have done his job nicely but you not realise that it is his first directorial venture. The story is written well and executed in the way it should be done. Screenplay of Tushar Kanti Rai is of good level and editing of Charu Shri Rai is average.
Farhan Akhtar rolls great acting in the role of Kishan and once again he has proved that he is a a wonderful actor . The character of Gayatri played by Diyana Pantie delivered well in the acting skills. Deepak Dobriyal once again seem to do justice to his character & his work is also very good. Popular actor Gippy Grewal from Punjabi films beginning his Bollywood innings in this film acted amazing & did full justice to his work & Rajesh Sharma and Inamulhkh are quite strong. Jailer as Ronit Roy did his work amazingly deserves praising.Rest artists have also done their job in a nice manner.
Positive: - Excellent acting of the cast, different topics, great music and great direction.
Negative: -Gets boring in the second part of the film.
