Writer, director Sumit Arora comes up with multi-layered script which keeps the viewers engrossed. Fine production values, a brilliance in extracting performances from his actors and a sorted approach to his story-telling techniques are the hallmarks of this film.

The relationship scenes, be it the happy ones or the ones when the relationship has gone sour touch your heart strings. You almost feel that you are reliving those moments when your own personal relationship was in some kind of a fix.
On the acting front, both Kunal Kapoor and Kritika Kamra have portrayed every varied emotion with equal ease. The highlight is the song in the climax which signifies the emergence of a new horizon in the lives of the couple.
A must watch for all who are in love, forget just being in a relationship. This film teaches you to love your mate more truthfulness and honesty.
