Karan's beard appears and disappears throughout the movie.

When ACP Malti Vaidya is sitting in the hotel, she's shown first sucking on a long cigarette (unlit), then in the next shot, is lighting the same cigarette with a noticeably shorter and already smoked cigarette.

Factual Mistake
Saif's car shows a yellow name plate which means it's a hired vehicle
