Was on demand, vatti and I clicked it and were surprised as to what kind of movie it actually turned out to be. Filmed as if it's an older flick, with an interesting cast of characters (known and unknown) no less. This film completely highlights a dark part of history that many do not know about (till now anyways). Well told although the story itself is shameful to say the least. Review TBC.More
