Kartik and Kriti Sanon’s Shehzada. A part of the review read, “Another problem of the film is how it focuses way too much on Kartik Aaryan and consequently makes all the characters around him unforgettable. It is probably just Paresh Rawal who manages to add meat to his character with his brilliant performance. Everyone else- from Manisha Koirala to Ronit Roy and even Kriti Sanon are completely wasted. Sunny Hinduja had every potential to be the formidable villain that the film required, but he was not given enough space to even explore his character.
