Recommended for those who have a love for seeing quality Movies
2 January 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of Raja Ravi Varma, and after seeing the movie I got to know much about the lost literature and piece of history unknown to me. Since I was unaware of any fact regarding the character, hence I can't criticize on any point or misleading detail. And the speeches were really well delivered both by talented actor Randeep and gorgeous Nandana.

I enjoyed the movie and I wish to see the standards of Indian cinema more alleviated and up to the mark. Because in recent years the quality of movies is degrading at a accelerating rate and this movie provided some of the healing aid to the classical cinema lovers.
