良い映画、良い映画って言われてるみたいだけど、本当に良い映画なのか疑問です。実際こんな理不尽なことが行われているという真実はめっちゃ分かりましたが…。なんで助けないんだろ、日常茶飯事すぎて面倒くさいとかだったら悲しい。
だれだって助けてほしいよ

実際にこんなことが起こっていたことを知らなかったので、知れたのはよかった。
けれど、こんなことが実際に起こるのは悲しい。

Dear Rajeev, thanks for making this film. This is something that is happening everywhere. A few years ago, someone was being beaten up severely in a cinema in my country but nobody did anything! I hope more people could see your film. It certainly deserves 5 stars!
