First part of the movie has a strong & engaging storytelling while moving forward becomes predictable drama. In spite of being shot in a village it has out of the box & interesting plot. Second half could have been better while climax of the movie is easily predictable also drags a lot for almost last 20 minutes. Vishal Bhardwaj being choosy in putting the scene systematic, proper & convincing this is really appreciable but towards the ending it seems that could have been far better or it could have ended sometime before it’s actual length. Completely different drama is the main punch line of the movie.
