Kashyap when you see a lot of other things than this. Because he has done so much, then you keep discovering things. But, anyway, it’s a very well-done film. It holds very well its gibs you and then slowly you understand when behind it some things also land. So this also and that, fantastic. He is one of my favourite filmmakers when I said this a long time ago 20 years ago I said that he is one of my inspirations. When they used to say I’m supposedly his inspiration. So he is outstanding and a great film.”

But this one works otherwise it made me cry, it made me wonder, and it kept me stressed out he does that anyway but, I really really enjoyed the film.
