Brilliant movie truthfully depicting Awadh
28 May 2020 | by vakilsahebSee all my reviews

The movie is very well thought out and has excellent comic scenes. It describes Awadhi culture very truthfully. One can relate to all the characters, especially Santo Bua, Dadda, Guddan Chacha and Ghoomketu. Ila Arun and Raghuvir Yadav have played the characters exceptionally well. North Indians would relate to all these characters as they are ubiquitous. Nawazuddin is a great actor and has done very well in the film. Most of us were not aware about the practice of Rudali till that film was released. I think this film would inspire many Directors to go deep into the cultural milieu of the UP villages and make sincere movies. Overall a great movie...
