All three lead actors -Kareena, Vijay Varma & Jaideep Ahlawat are brilliant in their respective roles, especially Ahlawat with his make-up, quirky mannerisms, and calm demeanor in the most stressful of situations!! The guy seems to be getting better by the day!!
The screenplay is crisp and engaging from the first scene itself. Brilliant direction by Sujoy Ghosh coupled with great Cinematography depicting the dull and gloomy landscape of Kalimpong is also worth a mention!! A mind-bender in the true sense!! Must watch for true aficionados of this genre!!
