Analysis
Anurag Kashyap is always known to make films with content that is hard-hitting and different. For the first time, he has changed gears and come up with a family drama that is bloody good. He deals with the emotions of a middle-class wife and what happens to her when she finds free money. Though the film starts off on a dull level, things pick so well that you are glued to the screen as to what will happen in the very nest scenes. The twists are quite predictable but how Anurag unleashes the drama in a middle-class setup yet not losing his side of dark thoughts is the best part of the film and will you keep lured till the end.

3.5 Rating.
