Rishi Kapoor was exceptionally good at playing an old man's part in the film.Ratna Pathak being a stage actor was without a doubt extraordinary . Alia Bhatt and Fawad khan were pretty good too. However Siddharth Malhotra was mediocre as always. I think he has done enough films where he hates his so called "BRO". Three time still no charm.

Performances wouldn't have been so great without the upheld and sophisticated writing. Though there are some clich├ęs in the movie . Overall its a job done well,

The story revolves around a family of kapoors.. The oldest one is in the  last stages of his life.And he wants a picture of his complete family as his eternal and last wish. The entire family reunites for the picture which brings all their internal problem to surface.

Its a nice and meaningful film with a lot of deprh adding greater to the dimensions of the film. I recommend watching it only if you are into emotional movies.

I rate it 3/5.
