Perfection in acting what I loved the most.
11 January 2019 | by shubham-sharma6080See all my reviews

Acting was perfect of nearly all characters. Anupam kher really did justice with the role. Akshay khanna was outstanding to the core the way he acted it looked like he is sanjay baru.

Most fascinating thing is the story in the film in which we get to know how govts functions and what happens inside PMO. It was delight to get details, how things are fixed and stories are planted in the media.

Now I have deducted 2 points because I felt it could have been more dramatic by putting more faces of opposition leaders and common public. But I think they stuck purely to the book that's why omitted that stuff. Ending could have been more of the message or question in the audience mind.

All in all it could have been more dramatic to deserve 10/10.
