User Reviews

 
Touches the bar of Bhatt camp muvis but with weak music.
18 January 2019 | by muvi-fan-73See all my reviews

The movie puts light on one of the ways of how students get into elite institutes by illegal means.

The movie offers more than that in trailer. It sets a plot that goes different from what one predicts.

The Bhatt camp is known for movies involving love story, an anti entity accompanied by great music. It is successful formula in earning up to multiple times of movie budget.

This movie however is inspired from real incidences and inclines more towards reality. Music is good not as good as other movies belonging to respective camp. Overall touches the bar of movies from Bhatt camp.

Final Verdict: It is an average business, decide yourself if to watch or not.
