The Whole Town's Talking (1935) Rip-off!
17 August 2020 | by zabalmsmSee all my reviews

This movie is a rip-off of The Whole Town's Talking (1935) movie which starred Edward G. Robinson. It is just not up to the level of the original. The original was a comic masterpiece. This one is kind of cringeworthy Bollywood masala stuff.
