John Abraham is a winner in the movie. He has again proved that he can definitely act and look smart as well. John as Sanjay Kumar was very convincing and true to believe. Kuddos for the actor’s performance. Mrunal plays the role of a TV Journalist and Sanjay’s wife. She has also done an impeccable job. Everyone from Ravi Kishan to Nora Fatehi have done an amazing job.
Nikkhil Advani has done a great job in his direction. We couldn’t find any flaw in the entire movie. Everything felt so real and gripping.
Overall the movie is just superb and is a must watch! Everyone needs to watch this true story.
We would like to give Batla House 4 stars.
