Trivia

The film was first shot in 2013, but not enough scenes to make into a film were made because final stages of the production coincided with monsoon season, forcing the filmmakers to raise more money and do a reshoot, which took place in 2015. See more »

Mixing cultures doesn't look so good
5 May 2019 | by omniscient0001See all my reviews

Brie Larson is my favorite actress. So I didn't care about the poor ratings, I went for the movie. As I watched many Indian movies before, so I knew what I was watching. Random dancing, singing and the critical situations like hindi tv serials. I wonder why people think that American actors would fit in a Indian film.
