Kisaan - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Violence, politics, business, family, romance - this one has it all. Does it make it THE masala movie to watch. Na-ah. Tastes bland despite all the masala. Save an interesting, unexpected twist there ain't anything to savor.
