Not bad at all
15 January 2019 | by t44249See all my reviews

After watching the movie I was still perplexed why it was rated so badly. People who are into movie making will immediately know how much work was dedicated for such a movie. The locations, costumes and props are breath taking. Action from the start till the end, two majestic ships, which were really built specifically for the movie and outstanding acting as usual from Mr Khan and Mr Bachan. Thumbs up and thank you for this amazing project.
