The Film Emotional Atyachar - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Emotional Atyachar is a quirky, dark, humorous, non-linear, connect-the-dots, pulp-type fiction. With performers like Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Abhimanyu Singh, Ravi Kissen, it's short, but not-so-sweet fun.
