Manasi’s review published on Letterboxd:
After seeing the trailer, everyone (including me) thought they showed the whole plot in there , but that was only half of it - quite literally.
The movie feels long and draggy in bits, courtesy to the plethora of issues they seem to tackle on.
The story is good, and the message of the movie is sweet, but the execution of the climax could've been much better. It felt rushed, and didn't quite go with the established characterization.
The dialogues are well-written, and keep providing comic relief throughout the movie. The music by A.R Rahman and the performances by everyone is great. Kriti shines through in this one (the only problem I had with her was that her accent seemed to be slipping off quite often). Another Pankaj Tripathi masterclass here!
Overall, it was a nice watch
