    I am not a Konkani-speaking person, but I saw the movie in the first screening. With the subtitles, I could very well follow the storyline. Excellent movie. Good direction, the best music and songs, and very good acting. The hero and heroine acted as if they were very much experienced actors. I really liked the natural acting of the Goa actor who received the hero and heroine there. Given good justice to the history. Congratulations Osmitay team!! great effort.
