Story: Back from the US, Neha (Soha Ali Khan) heads to a remote village in Bihar to build a school for children. But local politics and existing rampant atrocities against children get her embroiled in larger issues.Neha (Soha Ali Khan) heads to a remote village in Bihar to build a school for children. But local politics and existing rampant atrocities against children get her embroiled in larger issues.

Review: As soon as Neha reaches her destination, she bumps into three children, who are criminals according to the villagers. They bunk school and are later lured into joining the gang of a local crime lord. Will Neha be able to rescue and reform these gun-wielding kids and others like them from the clutches of the baddies? Can she single-handedly bring peace to the village?Neha reaches her destination, she bumps into three children, who are criminals according to the villagers.

While the film's heart is in the right place, preachy dialogues and modest production values don't help. In spite of the presence of talented actors like Seema Biswas and Soha, uninspiring writing, poor editing and cliched storytelling make the movie ineffective and modest production values don't help.

You do not feel for the characters or the protagonist's brave battle against the system. The mood and setting created fail to match up to the maturity displayed by the actors. While a few portions are required to be tense and grim, the gravity of the situation is never felt.

The little kids very easily carry guns, dodge the police and kill people. It all looks very convenient. Cops say silly dialogues like, "Woh toh andhere mein bhaag gaye, abhi unko pakadna mushkil hai." The climax is predictable and thus fails to make the desired impact as well. dialogues like, "Woh toh andhere mein bhaag gaye, abhi unko pakadna mushkil hai."

The film also seems plagued by sound recording issues. For instance, if a scene shows a jeep passing over potholes on a watery lane, the 'pothole hitting' sound comes first and the jeep comes later.

We appreciate the filmmaker's noble intention of raising awareness among masses and the rural audience in particular about issues like child labour and child trafficking. However, we wish the execution was as convincing.
