BMS Users' response

Such a brilliant watchable movie for both families as well as fans.good work major Ravi and team.im glad major ravi has brought up a different story line this time.this movie is also a visual treat. man behind camera Mr.sujith has brought a masterpiece out of it.

Simply amazing. Gud story amazing cinematography and performance based all are just amazing. Direction and Vfx are just supetbb... totally 4/5

mohanlal strikes again .the movie is fantastic.mohanlal appearance didnt match this role but the beauty is the way he presented.wonderful.sure this will be the another blockbuster

One time watchable some lag here and there climax war was brilliant lalettan as usual no words and i think its time to break up with major ravi sir.

Again Mohanlal-Major Ravi combo.Like their previous films same story line,same sentimental scenes,its very boaring.It is the one of the worst movie of the year.

Come back of major ravi. Sujith steals the show. Brilliant cinematography..!!! One of the best visualised war sequences in Malayalam till date.. Lalettaa. What an energetic performance.. Heavy..

it's just an average movie.a relastic story.Any other director other than major Ravi can do the movie far better than this. first half was really good,second half was below expectations.Mohanlal done his part.

Film not up to the mark. Camera wrk very nice. Bt poor script nd direction. Laletta we didnt expect this one. Keerthichakra was nice movie. But comparing thease movie its a bigger crash. Laletta waiting the movie lucifier...

1st half of the movie only few elements are super.lalettan intros are superb. Lagging is main dis advantage of first half. But interval portion is superb. 2nd half no lag. But not interesting. Dilogues are not punch. Climax portion some elements are good.Average movie for me.

highlight is lalettan...nice intrduction and take off of movie...nice interval punch and climax war scenes...songs are good..actor who acted as pakistani commandor doNe an outstanding work .do watch the movie ..sujith vasudev needs a big salute for his hard work.

typical major stuff based on a true story bt not based on good screenplay ... After the numerous MMaha series here comes MRavi with a change MSaha ... songs were good . bgm not up to the mark ...

It is expected that the movie would be another blockbuster hit after pulimurugan... superb entry ... movie thought us love our enemy ..good family entertainment with all masala which we are looking for ...

The Best Ever War Emotional Movie India had Ever Seen.. Such an emotional Patriotic Movie.. Including Some Mass Scenes.. Salute Lalettaa, Salute Major Sir, Salute Sujith Vaassudev and Entire crew of 1971BB.. Another Blockbuster from Lalettan.. JaiHind

Poor story and direction. Lalettan perfomance is outstanding.. Major Ravi same story line. below avarge movie.. My rating 1. 5/5. major ravi only one mega hit

Lalettan really disappointed with make overs and some over actions. Good try from whole crew but not up to the mark. It's your choice to watch the film. But my suggesion is to don't watch if you can.

must watch movie. amazing lalettan and team. awesome war movie. the making and acting both are good and must watch. amazing amazing lalettan..

superb movie everyone must watchsuperb acting from laletan..super direction from major Ravi and the movie has good story

The film was nothing as much as we expected.. The war combo of raviettan and lalettan didn't work for this movie... A great disappointment for me

It is simply the best army film produced in this country. Brilliant performance from Mohanlal and rest of the cast. Super visuals. Climax is the best part of the film.

fantastic movie from mohanlal super making another 100 cr movie totally different from previous major ravi.filim super direction .must watcheble

Good direction from Major Ravi, and as always outstanding act from Mohanlal. A must watch movie those who love patriotic movies, for other it won't be enjoyable, still it has good family sequences, presented in a enjoyable way.


one of the excellent patriotic movies i have ever seen. awesome performance from mohanlal again. it's a very different story line and a great effort from major ravi. worth watching.


Style of move making is horrible,no good story and hero is not look like a soldier..should not even think about watching ..hopeless movie..
