the best vigilante superhero movie i ever saw...
2 June 2018 | by gauarv22See all my reviews

The story of this movie is incredibly well written. and shows the ground reality problem Indian citizens face everyday from politicians to government officers and how media houses portrays anyone. Some scene of this movie are beautifully captured. the best thing about this movie is they shows every detail how a superhero and his mask develop and involve.
