    "I watched this in 2015 when it first came out with my adopted children, who are Hindi. First off, it was great to see a strong female character for my little girl. I hate to say it but so many women in popular Hindi films are caricatures or only serve as a plot hook for the main (male) characters. I don't want to spoil it but let me say there are some crazy plot twists. A lot of fun to watch, a roller coaster all the way through."

    "This is an epic, violent, long sprawling gangster movie. It follows these characters lives over 7 decades through two 2.5 hour movies. They will both be included on this blu-ray release. This movie was made in 2012 but just got its first american theatrical release earlier in 2015. There were imports of this movie that i heard had awful quality. This movie is in IMDB's top 250 (deservedly so) with a 95% on rottentomatoes as well as 89% on metacritic and a 4/4 from rogerebert.com"

    "The video contains a lots of intermittent stops that totally ruined the movie experience. We had friends over our house and rented this movie, but the stops (or pauses) in the video made it a very awful show, especially when the movie is a thriller. Amazon - please look into this matter, already the rental price is quite high and we did not enjoy a single bit of it. A reimbursement would be appreciated."

    "This was my first foray into the Bollywood world and I must say it set the bar incredible high. This movie is now one of my top five favorite movies of all time it was that good. There are moments which are a bit ridiculous (which I found incredibly entertaining) and there are moments which are tragic. It encompasses the full range of human emotion throughout the film and maintains the perfect balance of light-heartedness and a powerful message. This movie is perfect for any college student as it has quite a relatable theme. It is filled with substance and I could not recommend the movie enough!"

    Country, also known as Mulk (original title), is a 2018 Hindi drama movie directed by Anubhav Sinha and starred by Tapsee Pannu, Neena Gupta, and Abdul Quadir Amin. This film tells the story of a controversial family.

    "The film is shot in Benaras and Lucknow, and cinematographer Ewan Mulligan has evocatively captured the spirit of both the places. There is a grittiness, a graniness, a grimness rather to the cinematography which goes with the bitter subject of the film. Ballu Saluja’s deft editing brings a fluidity to the proceedings. The writing, especially the idiomatic dialogue and the court scenes are the soul of the film. Kudos to director Sinha for that. And he should be lauded for his spot on casting as well. Every actor looks their part. They feel like a family when they are together, their uneven odds and ends fitting into each other to make a whole."

    "If you're looking for one of the best Hindi movies, I highly recommend Nila Madhab Panda's Dark Wind. This film is going to stay in my memories for a long time, no matter how hard I try to wash it out with other movie dribble. The film is full of just the right kind of drama, and I was truly mesmerized by not only its characters, but it's cinematography as well. It's darkly humorous at times, too. Please check this out if you're a fan of Hindi movies."
