WHAT’S NOT THERE?
The movie is restrictive in matters of age catering only to a section of the society therefore not being popular in the older generational groups. Although major sections are tactfully witty, some scenes take a deviation, losing its humour, seemingly dragging it a bit in certain scenes of the movie.
The movie effectively delivered through its fresh faces and humour. It shows bonds of friendship also and showcases the pros and cons of social networking sites. The youthful romance has also been done just right to focus on the urban youth life with the timely tunes to make one dance on his/her feet. It most definitely is a harmless way to pass one’s time while keeping the mood light.
