Although Satish Kaushik has not a big role in the film but his dialogues are quite impressive. The other artists like Amar Upadhyay, Mita Vashisht, Neha Chauhan and Brijendra Kala etc. have also justified their presence in the film. In an item song actress Sandeepa Dhar has also impressed the audience with her latke-jhatke.
The music of Pravesh Mallick, Rahul Jain and CeAzar are quite impressive. Songs are very much relatable with the storyline. So, overall music has added the value to the film.
The direction of Satish Kasuhik is unbeatable. He has perfectly utilized the actors and other resources to make this a perfect film. Once again, he has proved himself as one of the best directors of Bollywood. This story is beautifully written by him only. The screenplay and dialogues are another strength of the film.
Overall, this is an outstanding film. It’s a satire and we can say that it’s a slap on the system. This is a family entertainer so; it can be recommended to see with the family. No one should miss it.
