Talking about the direction, it is at a fabulous level altogether. And you more or less expect that from a filmmaker like Jayant Gilatar (Chalk n Duster fame), who lets the story flow in a nearly flawless manner. Music and background score of the movie is wonderfully put up by Alap Desai. In particular, the song ‘Jat Jao’ sung by Alap Desai and Shreya Ghoshal is a soulful melody, while the song ‘Jeevan Aa Toh’ is woven perfectly in the sad scenes, making your eyes misty. Two elements form the soul of this movie–stunning performances by all the actors and powerful dialogues penned by Pravin Solanki and the immensely talented Sneha Desai.”

The Times of India has rated the movie 4.0/5 and Divya Bhaskar has rated the movie 4/5. The audiences have also been in all praise about the movie…

Siddharth Randeria once again proved that no one can beat him in acting…he is a flawless actor and Deepika Chikhalia also looks elegant…family movie with a message…100% watchable…
