User Reviews

Great action sequences in an Indian movie after a long time
6 March 2018 | by guptaaks007See all my reviews

It is a shame that this movie has 5.6 out of 10 on iMDb. Such a gripping story highlighting the amorality extent in our society and how somebody can become a victim in such circumstances. The action sequences are quite amazing, something missing in our movies or overly exaggerated like in Salman Khan movies.
