My Say on the Film – Beautifully filmed each and every scene. The bond between the father and the son, how the son creates a false world just the way to his father’s imagination or expectations. The way he is projected as a tough police officer and at the same time a soft understanding guy to his lover. A beautiful movie.
Closing Remarks – Action, comedy, romance, overall a good entertaining movie. Applause to the entire team of Dookudu. Awesome movie with the entire teams effort. Do watch the movie.
