Cinema Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The actor’s final film is full of flavour and feeling. Paresh, who stepped in to complete the film, is quietly effective. Instead of matching himself to prior scenes, the actor dials his performance down. This allows us to savour each moment Rishi is on screen ... Full Review
