Script Analysis & Director : The Script is based on book as we all know , but the second half do drag , otherwise the movie is shot beautifully , also the background score and the music is very soothing . Director Mohit Suri who  has given us Ek Villian , Aashiqui 2 , seems concentrating more on making Shraddha Kapoor look beautiful , rather than direction .
Performances: Arjun  Kapoor has tried hard to act as non English speaking guy but he is not suitable for this behari babu role . Though he has acted well .
Shraddha Kapoor though she is looking bueatiful but she seems to be doing same type of acting.
Vikrant Massey as Arjun’s Friend is fantastic , he has acted very well
 Final Word : Watch the movie for its music and cinematography .
Rating : 3*/5*
