Mina is repulsed by her true identity.

Please don't go by the ratings. I almost didn't watch the movie after i saw that the rating was low. The movie surprised me. It was interesting and action all the way. The girl was pleasant to watch and her acting was good. Apart from some minor errors here and there, this movie is definitely worth watching. The story of this film was quite new for me. It was not the same old same old terrorism stuff. Something different was provided when you come to know at the climax. The lady villain was a bit irritating. Simons acting was nice. Overall, i will recommend this movie. Enjoy!
