Know the country you are filiming in
28 December 2017 | by sonikuttaSee all my reviews

Not only are the songs and acting subpar ...you would think that if you say that you are in Bilari which is in UP (India) then the scenery, language on the signs, the little girl pointing to Larson as she speaks to her mom would be in Hindi or in Urdu...NOT in Malayalam which is from Kerala (south India). Typically American directors who have no clue about India to make it at least consistent.
