As excited people flock to theaters to witness this cinematic journey, social media is already buzzing with early reviews and opinions. Among these reactions, industrialist Anand Mahindra also shared his thoughts on the film.
"There is a powerful virtuous cycle created when a country produces movies which tell the stories of their heroes. Especially about soldiers & narratives of leadership & courage. The pride & self belief of people multiplies. More heroes emerge when people know their courage will be feted. Hollywood has created this virtuous cycle for a century. So thank you @RonnieScrewvala for making such movies for us. Especially about this ‘gazab ka banda, sab ka banda’ as the song says." wrote Mahindra on X.
