Acting at its best with good topic
28 December 2019 | by taalzzSee all my reviews

One of the issues India faces a lot. It's like a taboo there to have toilet within the house. Most of them can't afford it. This movie highlighted all the social and financial aspect of the slums who can't afford to have a toilet.
