The movie is out-and-out laugh riot with fine performances and rich production values. With this film, Dulquar is sure to set a new style statement. ABCD is a beautiful romance comedy entertainment with all masala stuff to impress the mass. Dulquar and Jacob's brilliant performances are the main highlights of the film.
