When Kamal and Mintu come to know that Shyam and Sandhya are having an affair , are furious . They go and ransac Shyam’s House in frustration  , after that an incident happens that changes the scenario totally . What will happen to Sandhya and Shyam is for the audience to watch .

Script Review  and Director Analysis  : The movie throws light on the issue of under age affairs that are still going on in villages although as per indian penal code sex with under age girl is offensive . The movie script is poor and ends up awkwardly . It does not give any answers infact it leaves everyone with a question mark

Performances : Nawaazuddin as Shyam is totally perfect for this role . He has acted well and even Shweta has given a good performance .

Final Word : The movie is for the masses and not classes as it is not a commercial movie

Ratings : 2*/5*
