As everyone is aware it is a remake and the movies made before are exceptional. So, definitely the expectations would be high at least by the people who have seen it.
The movie is super entertaining and comes off as a new genre. The first half gives you a beautiful picture about the characters, how they are simple, funny, trying to meet ends and commoner.
Just before the interval you get a glimpse of the story and how it is going to screw everything up.
Second half is just an intellectual battle between Tabu and Ajay. How they try to out do one another. The climax is brilliant.
Ajay makes up for the time he was away from serious movies and excels scene by scene, Shriya is gorgeous and does well too. Tabu is menacing and yet a mother aptly supported by Rajat.
