Sexy Movie Bawa
31 January 2016 | by aniruddhmalhotraSee all my reviews

A big fan of Madhavan... Loved this one....

Touching Emotional Scenes...

Anger of Madhavan & Ritika raises testosterone levels...

Story isn't unusual but screenplay and direction is cool...

Good Bollywood sports Movie after a long wait....

Songs are melodious...

Sudha Kongara launched herself strongly in bollywood as a director...

Fight scenes can be done more energetically and some boring scenes could be edited well.

Overall I would say that after a long period bollywood gets a good sports movie...
