An Abhay Chopra’s critically acclaimed film which did average business at the box office, but the entire screenplay is quite engaging and interesting as the entire parameter revolves around one and the only circumstance, but this storytelling is just amazingly done throughout the film till the climax and then the anticlimactic sequences.
