इंसान और जानवर में यही फर्क है, इंसान अपने दिमाग का इस्तेमाल करके अपनी जुबान चला सकता है।
अगर हम वह भी नहीं कर सकते ना, तो हमें अपने आप को जानवर मान लेना चाहिए।
पूरा ताकत झोंकना पड़ेगा !

Similar to ‘Noor’ in a sense but touches on a different social issue.
Deals with how a small-time independent reporter exposes a racket involving local bigshots at great personal risk. Also makes a few powerful statements through the movie. pic.twitter.com/OqXMV0WOqY
