#RamSetu – An excellent movie that entertains throughout. A goosebump affair that unfolds at a rapid pace. 2nd half is even better than the 1st with climax courtroom drama a highlight and the last scene a killer. Take a bow, team. You have made something extraordinary ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 pic.twitter.com/lpLYYbI20R

Film is a blend of thrill, action & court room drama where 1st half & last 10 mins are good [Superb end twist) while 2nd half could’ve been more impactful. pic.twitter.com/jl7q9IHqmf

Interesting premise, stunning visuals, decent first half, wonderful performances [#AkshayKumar, #SatyaDev]… But the second hour falls flat… Subject had tremendous potential, but the writing is a mess. #RamSetuReview pic.twitter.com/rzOhr4gzOX
