The film deals with diverse personalities and how social media has affected their relationships. The way the stories are ended with an underlying message needs applause.
Debutante director Manjunath does a decent job, and succeeds in extracting superb performances from the entire cast. The biggest asset of the film is its run-length of 1 hr 55 mins.
