The movie continually goes into varied flashback modes and it is perhaps tough to maintain a observe of the identical. Juhi Chaturvedi and Nilesh Maniyar’s dialogues are okay. Just a few one-liners work properly and are witty. But a number of the dialogues misfire, particularly the narration of Aisha penned by Nilesh.
