The Good, the Bad and the Big Shot:
• The film tries so hard to look classy and glamorous, but with bad direction and a weak-written script, the film fails to resonate with the audience.
• Although the visuals of the film are truly stunning and picturesque, but with no substance in it, that is all there is to it - like a picture with no soul.
• It is such a shame as the film seems to carry so much potential and looks so promising, but the uninspiring bad plot totally ruins it.
• The movie is based on historian Gyan Prakash's book "Mumbai Fables".
