Best Indian Film - Hollywood standards
27 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

As many have not seen the movie, i don't want to reveal anything here. So pls go and enjoy in a good theatre.

This movie is mindblowing and there is one 'Transformation Scene' in the movie. WOW - being a Indian movie fan, i have seen lot of mass scenes , but when i was watching this TRANSFORMATION SCENE, the feeling i got is something i have never felt while watching a movie.

Be it the bgm, scene, stunt, looks, action, song - all in that one scene makes it OUT OF THE WORLD.

The movie on a whole is a TERRIFIC VISHWAROOPAM on its own. It handles such a sensitive topic in such REALISTIC WAY...

Its a 3 hr drive to a terrorist camp in afganishtan during the war and you all get a glimpse of Osamabinlaiden - VISHWAROOPAM BEST Indian MOVIE .
