Simon Di Berardino’s review:
A five and a half hour Indian gangster epic with influences ranging from Leone to Scorsese and Tarantino (apparently) should at least spark interest if nothing else. Well, it did for me, and while the length is definitely something to be desired, the film is stylistically energetic enough (especially when compiled with the soundtrack) to garner some excitement. A tale spanning three generations of a criminal family starts out quite convoluted and poorly drawn, but in its second half ends up redeeming itself somewhat as the story levels itself out and becomes a familial feud centered around a core concept of basic revenge.
I struggle with the tone of the ending as it somewhat glories criminal activity and revenge, but the film is energetic enough, even though its length is rather ridiculous.
