They’re so pure and infuse a lot life into their characters that the top result’s simply excellent!

On the face of it, the plot is an easy story of three associates who’ve been collectively since their faculty days and at all times dreamt of taking a visit to Goa on their very own. Nonetheless, the plan by no means materializes and after school, they go their separate methods although they do be in contact via social media. How they meet up after a few years and end up occurring this journey additionally kinds an attention-grabbing facet.

Once they arrive on the station to board the Madgaon Categorical prepare, clashes and disagreements happen and shortly issues begin spiraling uncontrolled. Sudden incidents occur in the course of the journey they usually maintain getting an increasing number of entangled with none clue to flee.

The Goa state of affairs has been captured very properly and makes all the things very sensible. The incidents are very relatable as this might occur to anyone.
