About 12th Fail

According to the Hindustan Times, “Massey takes the cake for delivering a brilliant performance, easily his career best so far.” He adds a variety of nuances to his character at every level. As a teenager, he is oblivious to the idea that cheating is wrong. As a struggling UPSC student, he is full of guts and ambition, and he is prepared to sleep three hours every night to ensure he has enough time to study and do little jobs for a living. Massey accepts and performs Manoj’s responsibilities in all areas that you’d expect, leaving no space for complaint.”
