What a Touching Film
25 October 2017 | by Geeta WinsomeSee all my reviews

Sensitively portrayed. This movie was very moving and clearly one of John Abraham's best performances ever. I loved the theme: there is hope even in the face of dying. Loved Padma (Anahita Nair) and Govinda (young messenger of god) because they both gave John's character reasons to live. This movie will bring tears to your eyes, so bring the tissue box - you will need it.
