Shaurya - External Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

Shaurya dishes out a strong flavor of anti-fundamentalism with a negligible measure of sermons. That in itself is a rarity. While it might not rise up to the standards of "A few good men", it has its intense moments that work.
