Minus Points : Screenplay, Second Half
Verdict : The film starts with the journey of the lead actors to Gulf. Their struggles and difficulties are projected on the screen in an interesting manner. The first half is all about introducing the characters and the struggles they face. The second half of the film introduces the struggles they have to face from Shaiks based in Dubai.
The second half is all about the struggle for the survival and overcoming all the difficulties.
After a lot of struggle, they head back to their own country and it is the film's ending point. The storyline of the film is impressive but the screenplay has become a minus point. Many of us might not know about the lives of people who migrate to Gulf countries and the director wanted to project them on the screen.
The director must be appreciable for the effort he made in bringing the film to the theatres. The incidents in the movie are very natural and the director made sure that he brings out the natural performances from all the actors. The director's talent is visible in handling the subject.
