Great to see Hindi film with meaningful content
29 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Very refreshing to see Hindi film with meaningful content. Air Lift and now Saala Khadoos. Maddy and Ritika has done a great job and for a small film its amazing to see what they have done that big filmmaker fail to do. wish more of films like these comes out of our bollywood.

The technical details and able to have a realistic fights like what Ritika has done is very believable and sad to know that we have talented people in every field but blocked by these goons politicians. as Maddy said correctly in the film, remove the politics from the sport and you will find champions in every ally of the country. imagine what India can do in Boxing, and other sports, how about Soccor qualified for FIFA?
