Yet again a masterpiece from Rao and Mehta sir
27 July 2020 | by sagnikdatta-48410See all my reviews

One of the very few movies that make you fall in love with the art of story telling. A perfect blend of natural acting, cinematography, music and showcase of real incidents doing complete justice to the main plot.
