The story, though heard many-a-times, intrigues your interest in it. Hashmi’s electrifying presence and few entertaining dialogues mould the story well in the first half. Till now, the story just builds the grey shade of Rakesh’s side. The pre-interval moment gives a hint of Rakesh getting a reality check and that’s where the makers will try to cash-in through the second half.
