The film, that is Sara Ali Khan‘s launch vehicle, had been in the lurch for quite sometime now. In fact, its release was jeopardised in such a manner that many speculated Simmbawould be the newbie’s debut film.

While Mansoor is a philanthropic Muslim who takes pilgrims up and down the hill either on his horse or piggyback, Mukku is the fiesty daughter of a Hindu pandit. While love brews between the two in the breezy first half, you can already feel the tension of the situation bubbling underneath, threatening to boil over in the second half. The already taken Mukku is falling for a guy who belongs to another religion and when has this not made for drama, right? The backdrop of the story also lends to the story, suggesting it was irresponsible development that led to the floods. With a good build up, we are now waiting for a storm in the second half of the film. But will it have the impact that a disaster drama should? Let’s find out…
