You love and hate Richa Chadda in equal degree due to the fact notwithstanding being a victim herself, she does not destroy the chain however bullies harmless girls into submission. Manoj Bajpayee, in one of the blackest roles of his profession, shines because the loathsome pimp Faisal who remains resistant to the suffering around him. Riya Sisodiya too makes her mark as Preeti. Mrunal Thakur is the find of the film. The debutant is a natural in front of the digital camera. Such is her ease that you trust you’re looking an actual individual’s existence unfold than looking a performance. It takes big amounts of braveness to begin your career with this sort of hard movie and permit’s desire Mrunal keeps to shine in the future years.
