A number of scenes stand out individually however as a part of the movie, they appear a bit handy and unconvincing. Vishal Vijay Kumar and Irfan Kamal’s dialogues nevertheless are applicable. However a couple of dialogues are in Punjabi, Tamil and Bengali and are tough to grasp. There ought to have been subtitles for these strains.
Irfan Kamal’s course is weak and a bit unpolished. He had an incredible topic in hand however first he messed it up on the screenplay stage. Then, together with his execution, he spoilt it much more. The primary 15-20 minutes appear very foolish and one would possibly surprise what precisely is occurring within the movie. The idea of the ‘satellite tv for pc’ will get clear solely after 30-35 minutes within the Punjab village scene. The movie boasts of very filmy and handy plot factors and it wanted an knowledgeable course in order that viewers can digest it. Within the absence of it, it’ll be tough for them to essentially get engaged with the movie.
SATELLITE SHANKAR’s starting parts may appear weird. The idea of the ‘satellite tv for pc’ may not be simple to grasp.

Her scene at Salem railway station is memorable. However sadly, her monitor shouldn’t be nicely dealt with and it lacks conviction. Palomi Ghosh has an excellent display screen presence and leaves an incredible mark. Upendra Limaye (Inspector Chavan) is reliable. Pradeep Singh, Anurag Mishra (Anwar Hussain), Anil Okay Reji (Sridhar), Asif Basra (Taxi Driver), Subrat Dutta (TC) and Sanjay Gurbaxani are superb.
Music is nothing particular. ‘Pyaar Ka Satellite tv for pc’ is sort of a theme monitor and is the one music that works. ‘Aari Aari’ is foot tapping however comes at a time when viewers are dazed concerning the movie’s idea. ‘Tere Sang’ is forgettable whereas ‘Jai He’ has a patriotic really feel and therefore stands out. Sandeep Shirodkar’s background rating is suitable.
Jitan Harmeet Singh’s cinematography is great. The movie has been shot in actual places to carry the authenticity and the assorted locales are nicely captured. Abbas Ali Moghul’s motion is dated.
