Must Watch 2 get JAILInsight & Importance of Freedom
21 October 2017 | by ambuj_boomSee all my reviews

Fabulously directed, well screen played and All Actress (onscreen characters) from Jailer to Maskini, Ruhi,Sanju Bindu,Ogo(African),Russian to Constable in fact big and Small , every1 acted Very Well. There have been many films which have Highlighted Plight of convicts/ UT(Undet Trials), but this movies not only showcased darks sides of jail but also UT's. Though escape & performing band was little melodramatic and far from pragmatic reality but still Bollywood movies have this especial flavor attached to it. Movies may make U ponder over the hardship that present UT may have been going through due to lack of Justice facilities, Trails , dates, Expensive and Genuine Lawyers and omnipresent corruption in Jails both in Bharat and Abroad. Such movies authenticate the value of FREEDOM which me & U R enjoying. HOpe U wud like it Fabulous well crafted Direction, acting ,etc
