I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made.

There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
