Groundbreaking, 19 May 2012
Author: Full Retard from United Kingdom

Truly groundbreaking film if you can tolerate the crazy camera-work. Shot with Canon EOS 5D SLR's featuring some of the oddest camera angles you will never experience from pursuing your own life. Almost turns the world upside down - even the action contains some kind of inner strength trying to escape. If absolute power corrupts absolutely then the real education of this film is the twisting nature of corruption as it rises to the top.

Ignore the critical reviews - this isn't a typical Bollywood movie, except for the soundtrack. More art-house meets Matrix with an impenetrable logic. Enjoy..
