The movie is a directorial venture by Tanushri Chattrji Bassu in which she had portrayed the meaning of friendship in a very nice way.


Sid ( Tanuj Virwani) comes back to India from New York after his mother’s demise to sell her cottage in Kasauli. Reaching to the town, he gets nostalgic and thinks about his childhood. The movie flows through the flashback of Sid. Sid thinks about the pranks made by his friends who tagged their gang as ‘Kasauli Cowboys’. Sam ( Aditya Seal) is the closest friend of Sid. Sam is from a rich class family but gets no affection from his mother who is a drunkard. When a new girl Nayantara (Izabella Leite) enters the town, both the friends fall in love with her. One day, Sam commits suicide. Sid thinks it is because of him and stops trying for Nayantara. The flashback over here and Sid comes to know that Sam didn’t die due to that issue, but because of the stress created by his mom and her remarriage. Knowing this, is Sid going to try for Nayantara again? Is how the story moves. Analysis

The screenplay is very usual which makes the audiences guess what would happen next. That itself is a major drawback for the movie. The music has been composed very well, and the background scores make the viewers feel the emotions. The cinematography is also done well by Sunil Patel. The visuals are so cool and pleasing to the eyes. Star Performance Though Tanuj is the lead cast of the movie, Aditya Seal has captured the likes of audiences. His acting is very genuine and isn’t much dramatic. He has done marvelously a great job in sentiment scenes. Tanuj, though acted well, he failed in delivering the dialogues with the emotion and energy. He did well in the romantic scenes. Izabelle Leite has been a bit dramatic in few scenes, yet the way she was made to look in the movie convinced the audience.

What’s there?

1) A good screenplay that makes the story move.

2) Nice songs and background scores that make the audience gets nostalgic.

3) Touching Dialogues.

What’s not there?

1) The scenes are predictable.

2) Tanuj missed the proper tone in the delivery of dialogues.

3) Few scenes didn’t convey the emotion to be conveyed.
