Movies that speak other languages, such as Tamil, if towards focusing on good storyline but not too focused on actors, are often closer to Indian audiences, bringing their normal lives to movies.

In addition to Hindi language films, Indian films also categorize a number of genres of films in other languages ​​such as Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, etc. depending on religion and geographic location in each region. The common point of most Indian films is that there is a scene of singing and dancing, with colorful costumes and typical dance in Indian culture, regardless of whether it is an action, emotional or comedy movie, mind reason. But each film in each language area has its own characteristics. The plot, focused focus (on content or actors), music, color and audience reception, all are very different.

Although the story written for this film is good, there are still bad sides about the execution. There is an inconsistency in terms of the film direction and narration. The background music is also too loud and not very suitable for the story. Nonetheless, the casts act very well in this production, with famous stars like Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Pankaj Tripathi, or Mandira Bedi. The characters seem to be too simple for them to show all of their talent, though.
