Sam Bahadur movie review
Meanwhile, OTTplay's review of Sam Bahadur read, "What lifts Sam Bahadur a bit is the bravery shown by Meghna and the team in not hiding behind the bush in showing Sam Manekshaw’s habit of calling people ‘Sweety’, he even called then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi sweetie once. Or the dynamic between him and Gandhi and how even Siloo (Sam’s wife) was jealous and angry about PM’s fondness towards Manekshaw."
