Roshmi Banerjee casting head of the movie did a FANTASTIC job. Everyone suited and supported their roles with ease. Vidya Balan is BRILLIANT as a helpless pregnant woman.  She dominated the show throughout the movie by her histrionics. Parambrata Chattopadhyay is excellent in this character. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Indraneil Sengupta provided nice job.  Darshn Chatterjee, Darshan Jariwala were good in their roles.


The Director Sujoy Ghosh did an honest job. He narration is very cool which supported by rocking performances. Cinematography by Setu is worth praising. The screenplay (Suresh Nair, Nikhil Vyas) is the major asset of the movie, which keeps audience glued to their seats. The Dialogues were natural and suited the scenario. Music by Vishal Shekar provided spice required, BGM is mesmerizing. Production values were good.


Great Film is like great food.  The more you have the more you want. Even Kahaani is a similar type of film which you won’t stop watching once. Go For It Friends. Congrats SUJOY GHOSH for his FIRST commercial success film and Kudos VIDYA BALAN.
