The story revolves around a murder of a wealthy man on his wedding night. The case goes to an honest but narrow-minded police officer Jatil Yadav (Nawazuddin Siddiqui). While investigating the case, it turns out to be a mystery as skeletons recovered from the closets. The murder conspiracy raised many questions in Jatil’s mind whether it’s a crime of passion, family politics or vengeance.

The debut director of the crime thriller is Honey Trehan who was a casting director earlier. Honey has tried to depict patriarchy- a curse of the society. With ample of evidences through the film he has clearly made his point and the dominance of male gender in our society.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui who is a power-packed entertainer has nailed this character of an arrogant cop who is unable to find his bride. Melting into his character with his intense acting, Nawaz almost brought life to it.


Apart from Jatil’s character, Radha is also a prominent character which is essayed by Radhika Apte. Undoubtedly, she leaves an indelible mark with her brilliant performance as a trafficking victim, a mistress, a lover and surely a fighter.

Each chunk of the movie has its own taste. The first half is engaging and entertaining whereas the second half will keep you in it. The dialogues were well-written according to the rural aspect of the script. The climax of the movie is nail-biting as it will not be the same as you would have expected!
