Nice Acting on side of Tatar actors - Typical Russian Bullshit Propaganda movie
Well i watched it on the plane and decided to re-watch it again. Hats of to Elvira Ibragimova and Gulya Aliyeva for good acting and seeing some chemistry between them. The movie is not bad to watch with a family if no other options are available. Also it shows Kazan and Tataristan for a bit ( some local landmarks and cuisine, also mythological creatures), Why did i then gave it 2 out of 10 because it again glorifies the Russians as this dominating culture where Russian guy comes and saves the world while the Tatar guy(Rustem) who obviously has some crush on Gulnara is supposed to work under him like his dog and let the Tatar girl go out with Russian. The stress on ethnicity is made in the movie. So for people who value Tatar culture its another blow on the face and a new product of Putin Propaganda which has been suppressing all the ethical movements since the Ivan the Terrible ( who by the way is shown in good light). Good movie to watch pisses me off that Tatar girl falls for Russian wanna be bad ass macho
