'The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you' is the point that Writer and Director Muazzam Beg, in his directorial debut with Sadda Adda, the bollywood film tries that to put across the point - That the only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams – is you! Sadda Adda - movie review... People have dreams, but not all of us have the guts to put faith in ourselves. Most of us lose focus and give up. We are most afraid to believe in our own dreams.

A city that brings in thousands of North Indians in search of opportunities that was never available in their own home towns. Like-wise, six boys from different states come together to share a two BHK apartment in a middle-class colony, which they lovingly call "Sadda Adda". Kabir (Kuna ....

Debutant director Rohit Dhawan is the son of prominent director David Dhawan who directed movies like Shola aur Shabnam (1992), Aankhen (1993), Raja Babu and even till late – Partner.

It is set in those days when modes of communication were still evolving, maybe the World Wide Web wasn’t even launched in the US, and so the mobiles and the internet weren’t even thought of.

Parents Mukund and Sudha (Sachin Khedekar, Tanvi Azmi) get too engrossed with Vidur and leave a feeling o ....
