Not worth your time
19 March 2019 | by sdamitSee all my reviews

I don't know why it is rated 7.2 on IMDb. I've loved Kangana for Queen and Tanu weds Manu series. But this movie was horrible. Neither did the movie had that zeal that is required from a war film nor did it had any acting or directing sense. There was no justice to the character. Sorry, but the movie was not upto the mark at all.
