So definitely, this show is in my book. If you’re still undecided about seeing it, have a look at what others had to say about it after you.
This is a must-see!!! It’s the best movie of all time. Adivi Sesh’s performance was nothing short of spectacular, if not absolute perfection! The cast was excellent, and the storyline and subject matter were just what India needed at the time. Directors and actors are unlikely to take on the role of director or actor in a film with the sensitive subject matter. OUTSTANDING WORK!!!
