Raw & on your face story
19 September 2018 | by sanjeevuppalsSee all my reviews

The story of this movie has been written with thorough research on the subject, without titillation, a truthful & nuanced portrayal of the Red Light ecosystem in context of the sex workers , middle men & law enforcement . Editing is so taut that you would not want to leave it unfinished except for very few portions which seem to be over stretched . All actors have put their best foot forward. Dont be surprised if you feel repulsive towards the dark characters & sympathy towards the victims. It also serves as a lesson to the common man ,a lesson on hope & grit. The director is a definitely a better version of the highly talented madhur bhandarkar so you can imagine what movie must be like. I recommend it as Must Watch.
