MUTHU with a HARRY POTTER TWIST
25 November 2018 | by arjunflamingfeatherSee all my reviews

MUTHU is a well thought and written piece with subcontinent dialogue and language other than the language we use. We use for our understanding of cinema both our mother tongue and the intelligence gained by watching films from the western hemisphere.
