Phantom is better than Perfect
15 September 2015 | by brarrubina-71814See all my reviews

Well never watched such an excellent cinema from more than a decade, everything was perfect, no flaw in the movie, Katrina kaif and saif ali khan definitely best actors of India, they both deserve national awards for their performances, its a perfect roller coaster ride, 1st half it was action packed thriller, and second half makes you all emotional and patriotic, climax superb, best vfx, best acting, best direction, and everything perfect, all awards to Phantom this year, and especially to Katrina kaif, she is best actress of India, unnecessarily criticized by some dumb haters, she outshine everyone else with her performance, be it an emotional scene, action sequence, romantic angle, or even a comic relief in 1 scene, she is par brilliance.
