However, the powerful and engaging dialogues make it worth a watch. It is a complete a male-centric film and the director has stuck to it and not given Ileana unnecessary attention to steal the thunder from Ajay’s character.
The film is shot beautifully shot at the exotic locations of Lucknow city. Ajay’s heroic act towards the climax is definitely to look for. Ileana being targeted by the army of the villain which is obvious in this hide and seek.
