Movie Scan – The golden era of Indian cinema had a lot of these kinds of movies being made. A lot of music and romance and finally the girl would relent and say ‘Yes’. Apparently these girls would have no izzat and live and come up from bad mahauls. Shadaab Mirza makes his directorial debut with Barkhaa and his script is absolutely directionless and vague. The audio score was average, all in all an average passable movie worth your time only if you have absolutely nothing else to do.
