Naam Kya Rakha is shot beautifully, with precision. The dialogues are simple yet meaningful. It is not a typical love story but one that is integral to the narrative. Hajra and Fahad’s subtle performances are the cherry on top. Those who have watched the short are comparing Fahad’s performance to that of Shahid Kapoor in Jab We Met.
