    ...Bhardwaj tells the story in a style that comes close to burlesque – wacky, entertaining, and over-the-top. However, something is missing – the storytelling doesn’t bolster the concerns in the movie the way it should, and it goes downhill after the interval.

    While it isn’t so much a fresh idea as an idea making a comeback, it could have been well-executed if Meenakshi’s character had been fleshed out to some extent.

    Every once in a while, along comes a movie that urges us to look beyond its trappings.  To lose ourselves in the lives of its characters, and the simple, but powerful, emotions that touch their lives.

    In a film that has more heavy breathing and silence than dialogue, it’s a remarkable feat of Banerjee’s to portray the corruption everyone takes for granted as such a frustrating, and yet comical, thing that affects us only when it confronts us.
