+ High Points
i – Well, this is new… to see an online film with option provided to the viewer of selecting which outcome to choose for the story to progress.
ii – Then the main characters can interact with the narrator throughout the film by breaking the fourth wall to help them to ease up the situations.
iii – It is a mix reaction by the audience regarding the time length of the film. It’s less than 120 minutes which I believe is good for this film.
iv – The film edited is by Imran Mushtaq, who has done a decent job for such type of film.
v – Ushna Shah is the only star, the viewer might remember in this film. The main reason is that she is the only well-known celebrity in the main cast.
+ Low Points
i – The film is rushed quickly towards the next scene where the writer / director hardly gave any importance in first establishing the emotional link of the main characters with the viewers.
ii – Since the film is comic thus the viewer hardly felt any fear of losing them or to find them in a conflicting situation; knowingly nothing serious would happen to them anyway. Basically, I just didn’t care.
iii – No song is worth listening.
iv – Nor anyone’s performance was enjoyable or pleasant to watch.
Other than great concept, a little is done with Oye Kuch Kar Guzar, adding yet another film to the pile of forgettable comedies.
Rate: 1.75 out of 5 stars
