A very good movie
23 October 2020 | by kppadmarajSee all my reviews

Good movie to watch.. some compare it with some different language movie which most would never would heard off. This is the problem with internet, they will search for things which is not known to any and will be boasting its a copy coat of that movie. Even if its a copycat, I d not see any issue as we most of all do not know the actual move which they say this is copied from. If there is internet some 50 years back, none of the best films of those times would have never existed. Some people would have demeaned it with their intelligence
