My Gut Feel and comments:
I am getting a vibes of an intelligently handle script with some decent performances from the Emran Hashmi and Vidya Balan with other two supporting cast Rajesh Sharma and Namit Das. Emran Hashmi evolved as an actor and created a special place in Bollywood with some enduring performances in recent years. As I go by my gut feel I am expecting an full paisa wasol entertainer which would appeal to single screen and multiplex audience. With moderate budget and different story and presentation I am expecting a hit. I would give 3.5 out of 5 stars to this movie five days before the release date.
