Simply WOW
11 August 2018 | by imdad-30417See all my reviews

One of the very few movies that compelled me to write a review. From the start to the very last scene you will be 'wowed' to the stretch. Acting was better than even some academy award winners. Same goes for Cinematography and direction. 1000000+ stars from me.
