The Techniques

Director Shashanka Ghosh comes out with a unique adventure and treats the film in such interesting manner that you can call the film a serious yet funny adventure. Though no spoof is intended, the film juxtaposes the 1970s film making and characterization with a novel experiment.

Music by Daniel George is good. Cinematographer R A Krishna captures the visuals in such a manner that have the 1970s feel but still appealing that adds to the narration value.
