Poor
10 February 2016 | by arifzworldSee all my reviews

Poorly written. Bad screenplay. With loads of clichés in most scenes. Also, the amateur actors are nothing but blank. And emotionless. I would say they did not justify with the issue at all. Wasted my time on this pathetic piece of trash! Poorly written. Bad screenplay. With loads of clichés in most scenes. Also, the amateur actors are nothing but blank. And emotionless.
