God, where live with us....
26 July 2016 | by darshanrupaniSee all my reviews

please must watch it.. this movie is bring me near to the Indian tradition... one sentence of Raja Ravi Varma says good about Indian tradition,'India is nation of Kamsutra,' i would like to say that India is first to give Kamsutras crafts.

although ran deep's acting is marvelous, and i would like to see Nandana sen as DEVI..

And we have to thank you to Ketan Mehta that man is bring it to us, a real tradition to real ARTIST.I don't care who's talking about this movie whatever but i would like to say awesome. And i wish Indian movie should get high over it and should be shown us what we have , what is Hindustani tradition, IT'S TIME.

**IF ANYONE LIKE MY THINKING USUALLY SAY IT REVIEW THEN SAY ABOUT IT ON rupanidarshan@gmail.com *** thanks (i give ten vote because its start up)
