Trust me when I say you’ve never seen anything like this before… and may never again. Set in 1920s India, this epic extravaganza tells the fictionalized story of two real-life revolutionaries and their battle against British rule. It is already the most watched non-English film ever on Netflix and deserves every second of your attention. Where else can you get a rousing dance-off, a bloody flogging, gobs of Zack Snyder-esque violence, and dueling heartfelt love stories mashed together into a Tollywood epic that will get you jumping up off your couch to cheer, cry, and demand more (even after three hours)? It’s brilliant, masterful filmmaking, and easily the best of the year so far.

5/5 stars
