However, according to him, the plot could have been more racy and pacy, “The film could have been better and there is room for improvisation. But I'll go with THREE- one for decent performances by Sonakshi and Sidharth, one for B Rji's 'upcoming' grandson, and one for Akshaye who if you haven't gauged by now, is a scene-stealer.”

Directed by Abhay Chopra and produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Dharma Productions, the film is inspired from the 1969 film by the same name, directed by Yash Chopra, which starred Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Iftekhar. The makers of the film had decided to not promote the film anywhere. But before the release they promoted it on digital media by starting a campaign against spoilers. Many Bollywood actors got together to request the public to not disclose the secret after watching movie and not encourage spoilers.

Coming back to the box-office figures, let’s see if the word-of-mouth publicity will help in increasing the business of the film through the weekend?
