    Check it out:



The reviews are bad, epic disaster movie

Who cares what the celebrities have to say. They will all praise it to stay on nepojo’s good side. Let’s see what the critics and audience have to say.

This was a brilliant movie, all the audience loved it, pity you didn't!

I don't know how the public can support Alia's movies?? given her parent behave and speak against the national interest.

Your comments are disgusting, what a shame. Are you illiterate with a narrow mind? When you can't appreciate a brilliant movie with great actress, stop spreading hate and negativity. It's against the national interest of India to do so. India is a democratic, secular country, spread love not hate!

Alia Bhat- hadd!

Alia Bhatt is Awesome!

Unbelievable! Most overrated actor ever- Alia Bhatt. Sona and Adi Roy Kapoor came out with flying colours in this movie. I wish Alia could just come out of her "still-faced-girl" look she's carrying since her Raazi days. Limit of being promoted for a mediocre performance. As far as the movie goes, epic blunder in terms of story, screenplay and DIALOGUES! Absolutely clueless director and producer, wasting money on a non-required movie in Hindi cinema. Spare yourself people, it was absolute terrible start to my happy weekend.

As overrated as Alia is, Sona and Adi are equally underrated. Story, dialogues and screenplay- Absolute nonsense. Songs and music- make no music to ears. EPIC FAIL!

It's a great shame that ur narrow mind and lack of intelligence cannot absorb the brilliance of this movie: Superb acting of all the artists, great screenplay, direction, production, music, songs and the grandeur of this superb movie! Alia was superb!

Fail fail fail and that too an epic fail

It is a brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, brilliant movie and a great Hit!

Fail....bakwaas movie

It's a Hit movie, brilliant! Too great for ur small mind!

The movie was Brilliant! Each and every actor and actress's performance was superb! The story, music, songs,screenplay, direction, production and artists performance was brilliant. We enjoyed it so much! One of the most greatest movies of 2019 and of all times. To all the movie haters here, you are all disgusting and jealous of the artists, and makers of this movie. It is probably too great for ur low IQ! Alia and family pls ignore all these haters, they are illiterate and can never match up to ur brilliance, beauty and intelligence. They are burning with jealousy ! A must see movie for everyone! It's totally flawless!

Well overrated movie

Well overrated movie
