Noor becomes famous journo,movie ends on a positive note with a good personal and professional life of Noor about which she was complaining in the first half of the movie.She gets her love partner in best friend Saad who proposed her in the end.Despite of movie having such catchy songs like Gulabi Ankhein as the party number and being a super duper hit,the movie failed to satisfy audience.
The movie is liked for it’s music and Sonakshi Sinha acting.The movie is quiet relatable. You must go meet Noor at theater.
