The entire cast is of newcomers so the story remains the focus not the personalities. Also it’s always a good deed
to encourage young talent.

The music! There’s a ‘70s kind of feel to the songs and interestingly they have all been sung by the actors
themselves, probably for the very first time in Indian cinema.

The plot is not just a trip to the spirit world, it’s also a trip back in time with nostalgic ‘70s fashion and
all.
