Masaan - Twitter Reviews

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

Despite being set in a crematorium and having a sense of morbidity throughout, Masaan isn't grim. Nor is it gay despite its wit. Masaan carries equanimity of sorts in the “life is what it is” kind of a way with simplicity and flair in equal measure.
