High On Swag And Technicalities!

Mafia might seem like a very usual story that we have witnessed numerous times in all languages of cinema. However, the factor that helps Mafia stay unique is the making and the treatment.

Karthick is a good filmmaker. He has the vision to execute ideas. But all he needs, at the moment, is a writer to collaborate.(more)
