Massive entry by Powerstar killing a British Viceroy!

#Ranavikrama Heavy story, tries hard to entertain but stumbles by being too formulaic. Thankfully no unnecessary comedy track or songs.
So Sahasa Sarvabhouma is the title given to @stuntraviverma & he strongly justifies it in #RanaVikrama as the stunts are the saving grace.
