Like – not everyone is Sachin ‘Tendulkar’ and the thing which is not with himself, the other also does not like it. Nazia, the only Muslim character in Bisht’s film, breaks popular perceptions. She is not a non-vegetarian and also puts an offering in the fire. She lives comfortably in Sandhya’s Hindu family and does not mind that she is sent out and served food, her cup of tea is different. In the film, Umesh talks on many levels and all the cases are sometimes said in a light-hearted-comic manner and sometimes seriously. This is the time for such films and only through this will our cinema progress.
