Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Production design of this film is top-class. Setting an era of 1930’s wasn’t an easy one but the makers did made it work in the best possible way. The detailing work can be visible in every frames. I have never seen such a great production value in a patriotic film in contemporary Indian cinema. The Jallianwala Baug massacre have been aptly shown with great details and it was the highlight of this film. I am actually blown away by the visuals and the overall cinematic appeal of this film. This film is a testimony of how to make a periodic film with the right kind of material and element. The most difficult part of this film is to recreate the bygone era with minute details.The another major highlight of this film is the performance of the lead actor Vicky Kaushal. He absorbed the character so much that you feel its him living the role. It is his second best performance after URI. The canvas of this film is big and the long shots by Avik are breathtaking. It is a serious film and Shoojit has catered this subject without loosing his sight from the story. I am sorry but this is a film that should be only released in Cinema Theaters. It is not at all a OTT film in any way! The lengthy screen-time is the only drawback I felt, rest its ok.
