This is an interesting small budget film which you are likely to enjoy watching. The plot is about a US returned young man (Sooraj Sharma) who is a manglik and his relatives get him married off to a tree to ward off the evil effects before his proper marriage to the selected girl. This is quite a normal practice but in this case there are tragicomic complications because a female ghost ( Anushka Sharma ) who was haunting the tree now tells Sooraj that she is married to him. She appears before him during his marriage rituals and harrasses him with comic results for all. The ghost also discloses that around a century ago she was romantically involved with a local village boy (Diljit Dosanjh) who ditched her on the wedding day.Any further discussion of the plot will include spoilers.

Director Anshai Lal makes a proper balance between comedy and drama making the unfolding of the film fairly entertaining. Two parallel love stories make good interesting cinema. Acting wise the three roles are well played by Anushka, Diljit and Sooraj.The music is a strong point of the film and songs are hummable.
