Perfo of actors 🙏 include laletan but he is only gud at 2nd half
Making - Avg
Screenplay - Good
Music - 🚶
OTT Gud Decision 👏
If you could hold till the half there's something worth watchable for a one-time but having reduced the running time would've made the movie better.#12thMan— Krishna A D (@ChrishnaAD) May 20, 2022
