Bhagat's novel isn't a piece of pure literature with a great storyline, the filmmaker too doesn't get a bigger playground to display his directorial skills in terms of plot.
Arjun Kapoor is miscast as Madhav Jha. His struggle to get the Bihari accent right is quite evident throughout the film. Barring a scene or two, he fails to make a mark. Shraddha Kapoor does what she usually does in all her films. She flutters her eyelashes, strums a guitar and pretends to lip-sync a terrible English song that's more like a noise.
The film has a couple of instances where Riya (Shraddha) is seen crooning 'Stay A Little Longer'. Wonder if that was meant for the restless lot of us who were waiting for the end credits to roll soon!
