| Takes you back to the lavish era of Lucknow!
First of all let me start with a famous old quote "Love blossoms in Lucknow"!

As the above quote says love really did blossomed in Lucknow in the Tawaif era, which is very clearly highlighted in this movie. The entire culture, the entire set up and everything from the cosmetics to the acting easily glues you to the screen.

Now coming to the direction, Ali does a fabulous work here and brings the urdu old feeling brilliantly out here.

Performances wise Rekha is brilliant. No words to express her role in here. She is a wonder to see. Her chemistry with every single lead be it Raj Babbar or Farooq Sheikh is a pleasure to watch.

Supporting her is a wide range of actors like Prema Narayan, Dina Pathak and Yunuz Parvez.

Overall a brilliant experience of old Lucknow.
