The start of the movie is displayed slowly to understand a difference of picking a hike in the story plot. Some actors lacks in giving right meaning to the dialogues and also portraying the right emotions for the required situation. After complete re-assess of film, it lacks before the climax as the story somewhere makes the audience confused and they are not able to understand what the director needs to make them realize. But that is the scene makes bring a change in the complete story and the audience gets a big surprise when they gets to know the secrets for why the starting story is shown in that way.

Re-evaluation says that Madhur Bhandarkar is able to make that difference with this film he wanted to portray. Once again, he has given the audience a taste of new field ‘Modelling’. The director tried to picturise the real true facts of this field in good way beyond the normal life thinking. Every film has some defects and even this one but still you should go for it. The analysis or judgement for this movie is difficult as it has something different than other films. The real life truth is what the movie shows till the end.
