This film is about Rohan (Azim), a college-going guy who along with his friends live life to the fullest. Enter girl-next-door Faith Mehra (Faith). Rohan and his friend Vijay (Faraaz) both try and woo Faith and she begins to fall in love with Rohan. Soon friends turn into foes and Vijay along with his father, who is a senior police official, falsely accuse Rohan and lock him up.
Rohan is tortured in the lock-up and this starts a students movement against the police. Rohan and Faith leave their respective homes but at their college farewell, Vijay attacks Rohan but accidentally injures Faith, who lands up in the hospital.
The biggest drawback of this film is the number of loopholes in the script. Also, there are moments that are either unnecessary or fail to evoke any empathy for the characters. The film is patchy and inconsistent, and the second half gets boring.
With a runtime of nearly two and a half hours, the film gets unbearable. The script is flawed and the unnecessary songs are irksome. There are also way too many characters. Omkar Das Manikpuri (Nattha in PEEPLI [Live]) is pointless here. After meeting Rohan and his friends on the road, all he does is hang out with them everywhere they go. The logistics and facts are questionable.
Director Ashfaque Makrani’s attempt at filmmaking is weak and amateurish. Cinematography is decent. Music is unbearable. Costumes are apt. Editing could have been better. Nearly half an hour of the film could have been deleted.
Performance-wise, Azim makes a decent debut. Faith needs to enroll in acting school. Satish Kaushik is good. Faraaz makes no impact whatsoever. Omkar Das Manikpuri has no part to play. Mukesh Tiwari is his usual self. The rest of the cast fits the bill.
