Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

1) Strong sociopolitical satire
2) No singing-dancing or romantic subplot

4) Powerful supporting cast with Raghubir Yadav and Sanjay Mishra

 

 

Cons –

1) Rabidly alt-left movie dismissing the current state of Indian democracy.
2) The film is vilifying Indian Army and undermining their sacrifice.
3) An Oscar nomination will be good for the film but at the same time, this will strengthen the negative prejudice about India in the world.
