Vipul Amrutlal Shah is unquestionably a decent director. His previous film, “Aankhen” was exceptionally intriguing and even this film, which has such an obsolete story is likewise watchable. There are a couple of fascinating scenes, like the one where Ishwarchand Thakur discovers that Aditya has gotten hitched to Pooja. The scenes where there are encounters and little battles among Aditya and Ishwarchand, manage to engage you however there are a few scenes too, which don’t intrigue the viewers, at all. The first 50% of the movie is very boring, with constrained and uproarious satire and a similar old average “upbeat family” scenes. The scenes among Ishwarchand and Pooja’s dad Nattubhai are additionally very entertaining, and the scene where Ishwarchand tosses Nattubhai in the pool (!!!) is insensible. The Screenplay is the weakest connection of the film. The movie simply doesn’t figure out how to grasp your attention. The movie has an obsolete story and is by all accounts an old wine store in a new bottle.
