It’s been said that the film was way ahead of its time at the time of its release and had received mixed reviews. However, Ranbir’s acting was widely appreciated and brought him several awards and accolades.
The movie was written by Jaideep Sahni and while talking about the idea of particularly having a sikh character as the protagonist in the film, he believed over the years, for some stupid reason there was a notion that the main lead has to be fair, handsome and north Indian Hindi speakers.
