Great directorial debut
24 March 2017 | by TangLongSee all my reviews

Mr. Wang Baoqiang, one of the best actors ever (drama or comedy, not mentioning his extraordinary Kung-Fu skills) proves with his directorial debut that he was born a genuine artist. Buddies in India is a very entertaining, fantastic extravaganza with beautifully photographed scenarios, full of funny situations, dances, songs, and non stop action that shows how really hard Mr. Wang has worked in this project. Of course, you may like or not this movie, but when rating it you can't ignore the top quality of its artistic and technical production values, so I imagine that all those people giving it very low rates, must be the jealous ones that every successful person has…?
