Worth an award of sorts. SIMPLY AWESOME watching experience
28 March 2018 | by natarajanganesanSee all my reviews

The one line preview Netflix intrigued me and made me keep watching before I realized I reached my personal record time in continuously watching without a break.

The plot, at once, connects to all those warring nations being played by bigger interests. Not a scene is wasted. The plot and narration brings about the internal dynamics of the nations in that region (bigger and smaller) in such a nuanced way that it is an eye opener of sorts.

Performances are just awesome. Tough to single out any one but the lead characters are just top grade.
