Sources said the film is trimmed by about 3 minutes in its first half and the second half has been cut by about 22 minutes.

Trade critics said the opening of the movie is good and with its new crisp version in its later half the movie is expected to do better.

Public views said the initial reviews about the movie were moderately a mix-bag and after the second half of the movie was trimmed by nearly 20 minutes, the prospects of the movie turning out to be a hit are much higher.
