(It’s a great film, you should watch it). I was super impressed by Vicky’s acting. Dekh ke aisa laga ki actual me Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw saamne hain hamare (It felt like Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw was right before us). The body language was incredible. If you want to know the history of our country, then you should definitely watch this movie. It is very important for every generation.”
