+ High Points
i – Danish Taimoor’s performance is very good and effective as he is able to portray the double roles with ease. Other Honorable Mentions: Javed Sheikh, Sohai Ali Abro and Nayyar Ejaz.
ii – Poor duplicate’s life is quite funny and enjoyable to watch
iii – Audience would find dark comedy throughout the film.
iv – The production design is bright, colorful including its props just as the theme of this film.
v – A couple of songs are good to listen to.
+ Low Points
i – The film time length is short while being an entertaining film.
ii – The rich duplicate’s life is shown as handful of scenes only in compare to poor duplicate’s life.
iii – The ending for one heroine is good while bad for other one… depending on which duplicate she wins. Why ‘bad’ you say? Well the main problem is due his financial status. You see there is no character shift of him till the end.
With Danish Taimoor and Javed Sheikh at their best, Wrong No. is an effortlessly bought together to come up with good-rate comedy.
