What is kavya’s father reaction. What will happen to kavya and humpty are main parts of the story.
Shanshank kaitan has made his directorial debut with this film. He might be inspired from DDLJ. Shashank did a great job in elevating the chemistry between lead pair. Writer has wirtten few cheesy dialogues, Those are worked out very well. But the narrative style could have been better. Editing is okay. Cinematography is nice. Sachin -Jigar scored music, It’s not too catchy. Production values by dharma productions are extremely good.
Varun dhawan’s energy levels are quite down when compared to his previous film. His role is quite weak but he did a good job. Alia bhatt is at his best in emotional scenes, she did a great job as a chirpy girl. Siddharth shashank didn’t get much chance to show his acting prowess. Austhosh rana did a fantastic job as alia’s father. The supporting cast are okay.
All I supposed to say this an ode to DDLJ.These sort of stories have already seen in so many south films. Go and watch this for varun and alia.
