Decent Film
7 March 2007 | by directorfaisalsaifSee all my reviews

I think this film is more of a decent drama of the year 2006. It had some very brilliant performances from the stars like Hrishitaa Bhatt (Who according to me acted very well for the first time).

The only thing that made me sat and watch the whole film was Direction and Story Telling which was pacey.

The serious Hidden Personality/Celebrity attack in the film was hilarious!! Something special to look for!!

The camera work was really boring! I think that this cameraman is a First Time cameraman who does not know the Angels. The editing was really sharp and moving. The music again was a let down.

The actors were Mind Blowing again. The story has the power to keep you a hold of the film. The direction was simple and very decent. Scenes look was again in a decent way handled and did not look vulgar at all. A good film to look for.
