The movie is well made and has had exception performance by everyone, of course Irfan Khan stands out throughout with his strong expressions and dialogs. Mahie Gill doesn't have much screen presence but is quite apt on what she does in the movie. A Very good direction and good visualisation of chambal region.
Overall a good watch.
