The film was excellent-really enjoyed the film different from the usual indian films and it does not seem to be a copy of a hollywood fil,.
The blurb to the film sounds a bit confusing but actually is nt it is a simple story. Boy meets girl, girl likes boy. Third party interested and will do anything to get the girl.
What makes it different is how the third party gets the girl and this leads to the daths of janki and harat and the love interests reaction to it all which was the main surprise considering the usual type of films.
