Critics reviews

The film shows Wahab to be at least very interesting if not genuinely great as a director. He stages in off-putting visual configurations, putting his audience off balance and dryly hinting in his camerawork that the farcical actions being performed have a darker and more sinister meaning. His compositions occasionally veer into the outright expressionistic, placing his characters in dramatic, geometric compositions.
