The movie was not able to gain much fame as per the hype that was created before the release of the movie. It has been reviewed that the characters have not played their best role, which is one of the major reason for the movie not gaining much fame and high standard reviews. The critics have reviewed it as time and money waste money for the viewers.


Summing up, the story plot is good, but it does not have any twists and amazing turns that can generate some excitement for the viewers. The casting in the movie is not good, and the storyline is the same way as was in the novel.
