Awesome movie on Todays Womenhood
23 July 2017 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Very nice movie on today's womanhood, specially in India. All actors & actresses performed their best. Best line is, "why does our freedom scare you?". Plot, dialogues, screenplay, direction - everything was so amazing. Actually, I wanna rate this movie 10 on 10. But the finishing was too quick to describe things better & better. That's why I am giving this movie 9star.
