Debutant director Maneesh Sharma brings Delhi alive like few filmmakers have in recent years. His confidence with his craft shows.

It separates the film from being just another love story. In the second half, there`s a slight dip in the narrative after Shruti falls for Bitoo. The plot gets a bit threadbare and even predictable. Wish it was much tighter. ...Read full review
