    CRITICAL ANALYSIS
    The story is perfect example of an amalgamation of a rebellious troubled teenager raised by a single parent who detests singing and thinks it's a waste of time. And don't forget the love angle without which Indian films are incomplete. It depicts struggling rock musicians who do no real struggle, and neither is their depiction of grit or emotions. While Siddharth is trying to pick up the pieces, life keeps on throwing curveballs at him. The angle where Siddharth (Arsh Sehrawat) falls in love with another singer Neha (Shrenu Parikh) is the only good thing that happened in the movie. The actress Shrenu Parikh looks forced and lacks screen presence. The film seems dull as dishwater and is devoid of real emotions. It bends over backwards to make it worth a watch. The direction and writing are amateurish which has affected the acting and various aspects of the movie. The production, cinematography and editing and moderate production values seem standoffish .The story is simple and does not befit being mounted on the screen. All in all the film is not worth your money and time.

    TRADE ANALYSIS:
    The film may not do any business at the ticket window as it is stereotypical and has nothing new to offer. Moreover, there is no buzz around it.

    At the box office, the film may end up being a disaster.
