Loved it...ignore the overall rating
23 May 2020 | by shuvamdasguptaSee all my reviews

I do not know why the overall rating is so low. I loved everything about the movie. Direction, storytelling, acting, everything. The bollywood movie mafia never appreciated good movie and this is an example. This is ahead of time. I am sure it will be appreciated more in future.
