She continued, "Epic climax scene between father and son. Normalising, celebrating extreme violence, blood shed on screen and the likes of @anuragkashyap72 shower praises! Wow!!! The marriage scene of the villain, the killings which were worse than butchery, esp by the butcher character!!!"

She concluded her review with few questions and lauded the director for all the "bloodshed and perversion on screen." She wrote, "I don’t have a word to describe it and body shaming?, all this is not perversion?! Are you serious? I thought the nude scene of the lead man had a touch of class and emotion, the way the father intervened. The rebellious expression was justified I felt! But the bloodshed and perversion on screen !!! Wow!'."
