The film is based on the theme of caste discrimination and revolves around the brutal gang-rape and murder of two girls belonging to a lower caste in Uttar Pradesh. The story-line has impressed the audience and critics alike.

SpotboyE.com Editor Vickey Lalwani rated the film 3.5 stars and was all praises for its lead star. He wrote, “Ayushmann depicts helplessness, determination and attitude admirably in his complex role of a cop who is up against all odds. This man knows how to separate the meat from the bone, when it comes to selecting films.”


He even praised the director as he wrote, “Anubhav Sinha (yes, that Mulk director again who made your jaw drop in the Rishi Kapoor-Taapsee Pannu flick) leaves no stone unturned yet again to make you squirm in your seat at several points in the film by not just visuals but even tender moments exchanged on text messages between Ayushmann Khurrana and Isha Talwar.”
