for Jay Bhanushali (TV fame – Actor and Anchor) and Surveen Chawla (TV

a performance from Sushant Singh and Surveen Chawala. Yes, it is true that, it
is painful and difficult to watch such a movie. There was not a single moment
in the movie where one would yawn. Even though predictable plot, one would be
completely at the edge of the chair. We have seen Sushant giving powerful

shuruwat me hi kuchal dene chahiye; Kaidi ki rihaai ki arzoo aur rakhail ki
azaadi ki arzoo, sar uthaayegi jarur; chuhe ko maarne ke liye uske peeche nahi

happy-go-lucky Akshay (Jay Bhanushali) and falls in love. Mandar sniffs that
Sonika is hiding something from him and physically assaults her like anything.
On discovering the relationship of Sonika with Akshay, it is not to be even

Sonika takes revenge from him.
