Yeh Faasley - External Reviews

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

Yeh Faasley is a perfect thriller. It’s a shame that the first hour and the court room scenes are very mediocre. Which is why the twists and turns post-interval come both as a pleasant surprise and make for one of the best climaxes I've seen in a long, long time.

Thumbs down by Shaikh Ayaz, Rediff ...Tena Desae struggles to leave an impact but fails because of her limited acting abilities and a not-so-impressive presence. Having said that it would be unfair to lay all the blame on her.... full review
