| Holi: A real festival of colors for the viewers
The film mainly focuses on the sensitive and frustrating attitude of college youths who often jumps to danger, brainless and over-ridden by emotions and 'josh'.

I like the continuous shots used to narrate the story- line and also the sense of mind/attitude that the director has put to the each and every character.The film aesthetically depicts the college atmosphere of mid 80's, which covers every nook and corner of the surroundings. The quality of each shot, it's scripting, the evolution of thread, its portrayal in its very own simplicity and even the silly backgrounds, (which seems to be silly but to be precise, purposefully portrayed by a master-minded persona) all complements each other. However, to some extent i should agree that the film lacks a bit of technical quality and perfection. But to be a film admirer i should say the script and the direction has done its maximum hard-work to over- shadow its drawbacks.

Nonetheless, the film has delivered a beautiful message to the vigorous youth society who thinks by heart and knowingly does the things at the cost of ignorance. The director has given his midas-touch to even the minute details and has carefully woven the colorful, cinematic plots. "Truly, a holy on an unholy day"...
