Ideally, the screenplay ought to have been shorter for a greater impression. Akshat Ghildial’s dialogues are conversational however lack punchlines.

Music just isn’t memorable and the songs act as a deterrent. The title observe, ‘Atak Gaya’, ‘Hum Thay Seedhe Saadhe’, ‘Bandi Tot’ and ‘Maange Manzooriyan’ don’t have a protracted shelf life. ‘Hum Rang Hai’ is the one observe that stands out and comes at an incredible juncture. Hitesh Sonik’s background rating provides the movie a light-hearted contact.
