Well intentioned but misguided effort
28 January 2019 | by roommatesfvSee all my reviews

Baig is a talented writer but a poor director. The movie is carried by the performances. If it weren't for the great acting there would be no reason to finish the film, frankly. Kudos for a strong effort though.
