    I went to see “India’s Most Wanted” with my friend who went to see “Zero” with me back in December. We both enjoyed the movie. She intends to watch it again. I’d seen one review that said it dragged, but I don’t think it did. The info about SRK and the connection with the terrorist is given at the end. Unfortunately none of the songs have subtitles.
    Arjun fit the role really well. I’m not a big Arjun fan but I liked him in this movie. He’s supported by four guys on his team to get Yusuf, India’s most wanted terrorist. There are almost no females roles, a few moments with moms and wives (and one informant) but otherwise,all guys. Good suspense. Worth seeing.

      Thank you so much for your review, Jill! “India’s Most Wanted” didn’t really appeal to me, but I was still curious about it. Now I’m intrigued! Unfortunately, it didn’t do very well at the box office in the US (according to estimates), so I’m not sure if it’ll still be in theaters when I finally kick this cold I’ve got. But when it comes out on streaming, I’ll give it a shot!
