The movie which is a remake of Telegu movie ' Leader'  received average to negative reviews from the critics and was not received well by the audience as well. 

The film which has been produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by debutant Syed Ahmad Afzal, also starred late actor Farooq Sheikh in a pivotal role.
