User Reviews

What happened to the footage?!
29 April 2020 | by pradeepanandhanSee all my reviews

The movie is an open ended film. But that doesn't mean you have to cut it abruptly. All the potential lost to add some pseudo artistic value, it tries to bring in. Misused talent and lost ideas mixed up with some good production values.

But why?!
