The Kind of Movie Bollywood Needs
26 May 2018 | by gokscasmSee all my reviews

We have people blaming #Bollywood movies for content all year long and when a good film releases there's no one to watch it. Intentionally watched #Parmanu with 50% occupancy and what a film it is!! Such stories need to be told, these are the stories which children need to know.

And not movies on Sanjay Dutt, not movies on Dawood, Haseena Parkar, etc. #Parmanu invokes patriotism in you and that's what should be remembered. Anyway will have people bashing the upcoming Race 3 and blaming the audience for taking it to 500cr.

Whereas a Parmanu silently arrives and leaves without anyone noticing. Hope it gets what it deserves. An audience!!
