Don't Miss it !
11 August 2017 | by vikasrnSee all my reviews

๐Ÿ˜‚I watched it yesterday (10/08/17- A day before Indian release date, here in Oman), without reading any comments or previews. As expected, Akshay Kumar at his best after Airlift. He really took a daring decision to work in such Satire based on the issue which we prefer not to discuss in public in-spite of knowing the truth, what's right and what's wrong. I am sure he is not behind the revenue to be generated by this film. Perfect casting of each character. Based on a true story, this film is full of entertainment with a good message. Good decision by UP govt to declare it tax-free before its release and hope some other states should also do the same in near future. Hope the message reaches the places for which this film is really meant for. Length could have been reduced but still it's a film not to be missed. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
