Rustom Movie – Court Scene

This is based on a true story of Commander K. M. Nanavati. The film is based on Commander K. M. Nanavati vs. State of Maharashtra Indian court case in 1959 where Commander Kawas Manekshaw Nanavati, a Naval Commander, was tried for the murder of Prem Ahuja, his wife’s lover. There is a gentleness and soberness in the movie. There is no extreme “Dhishum Dhishum” or Hye Rabba Main Loot Gayi” kinda stuff in the movie. It is all the way Akshay’s stamp all over it.

Its worth watching and full Value for Money. Go watch it.
