Jimmy Shergill:- Performing in the lead role Jimmy did perform well but it could have been much more better. Looking at past performances by Jimmy this one wasn’t upto the mark.
Kay Kay Menon:- Performing in the negative role Kay Kay Menon complete nailed his role. The evil look he adopted to be the dominant goon was appreciated. The language transformation was really very good. There couldn’t be any better adoption than this.
Jackie Shroff:- No doubt that Jackie Shroff again put the show on fire with his magnificent acting. He was seen in a supporting role and he narrated the whole story. The way he present his dialogues is simple wow.
Shriya Saran:- Being in the lead role female, Shriya had a very small role to play. The acting which was expected from the lead actor didn’t stand the expectations. Looking at her previous hits like Shivaji the boss and Drishyam she could have been acted the way better than this.
Direction:- Karan lalit Bhutani is making his debut as Director with this film. The performance was at a low mark overall. The story line wasn’t that interesting. Direction needs improvement. Movie could have been better than this.

Cinespeaks Verdict: Overall, this film is not that great. It could have been much better and well executed. We give a rating of 2 stars.
