Aakrosh - Twitter Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Slick action, though the super-moves might be unwarranted for the genre. About a flaw in our society, but completely hidden in the midst of the action. All negatives are completely overshadowed by the brilliant portrayal of the futile and toothless system that prevails in some parts of the country.
