An interesting composition of Muslim culture, Restling culture and LGBTQ topics
14 February 2018 | by minghuiluoSee all my reviews

It is a really funny and relaxing film. It really make me laugh. And especially love the mom part, which introduced the conflicts between old immigrants and the new elements. It make people reflect these serious topic in the laughters. Nice work! Also Shabana Azim and Fawzia Mirza really interpreted their roles perfectly!
