Those who love to watch thrilling dramas that they could not find answers to will be excited and thrilled about this movie. The movie has left many things unanswered, which might keep you awake for a day or two after you finish the line. The stage for a sequel is set with perfection.

Rajukmmar Rao’s intensity which was teased in the trailer is up to the mark. He is clearly the biggest positive in this film. However, other than being intense, he delivers in the scenes where he acts vulnerable, clever, smart and hilarious. He is a complete package. Sany Malhotra has justified her limited screen time with her performance. The script demanded very few scenes from her, and she nailed them to perfection.
