Hollywood may take lessons from this indian flick
12 October 2018 | by newguytheonlyguySee all my reviews

I have to write a review for this spectacular movie, this i consider as my duty as a true movie fan who watches at least ten movies in theaters every month. I would like to congratulate sohum shah for this movie. Each frame of this movie is like an art piece, and the script is so beautiful, they used very few words to describe it. but those words clear all your doubt and also let you think on the story, people who are saying anything against it are morons, this in once in a life time movie. Tumbbad team you are the best.
