tremendous height of filmmaking & epic proportions of visual storytelling.
4 January 2019 | by aminifatimaaaSee all my reviews

This drama is not just aesthetically gorgeous- the cinematography is seriously nothing short of a masterpiece- but also carries a message that is just as beautiful. This is one of the most critically acclaimed dramas of time, with special praise given to the the heart tugging storyline and the beautiful layered performances from the strong cast.
