Acting: Talking about acting, Irrfan has given a solid performance in a salesman and domestic husband's role. The planning of his Blackmail creates too many laughs at the action scenes in the movie. At the same time, Arunoday Singh has appeared in a very angry roll, which is fairly fit for him. Divya also entertains at the middle of the movie. Kirti has also played his role well.


Direction: First half of the Direction movie is a bit slow. It takes time to set up the plot, but the latter humor is quite entertaining. The second half is much entertaining, the scenes create even more fun. Director Abhinav Dev has once again experimented with this comic genre after "Delhi Bailey" which is quite fun. The film has a successional humor. The writer of Queen and Bajrangi Bhaijaan Parvez Shaikh also written this movie very well. The movie's scenes have also been represented in the comic format. Overall humor and the presentation is really great in the movie.

Whether to watch or not: if you like Dark, Situational Humor movies and Irrfan Khan's acting fan, you can definitely watch this movie.
