I don't have any appreciation for film directors who make dull listless films for mainstream cinema knowing very well that such audiences need to be entertained through effective story telling even though the subject may be serious. This is a pathetically slow film based on the illicit relationship between a male middle aged teacher (Nawazuddin) and his teenaged girl student ( Shweta Tripathi).The plot has potential but director Shlok Sharma has not been able to convert it into a engaging film. There is plenty of hand held camerawork which really does not add to the film. Rather I found it jarring at many places. The narrative itself keeps going off in a tangent on most occasions and to make  matters worse we have a parallel subplot of two teenaged boys doing the most ridiculous things. It seems that one of the boys secretly loves Shweta but this does not come out clearly and is definitely not convincing. At best the film is a collection of some village scenes shot with a shaky hand held camera. Not artistic by any stretch of imagination.The acting of Nawazuddin and Shweta is the saving grace and they impress in most of the scenes.
