Kabir Khan’s much contentious and much-hyped political piece Phantom, starring Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif has eventually raised the curtains on Indian cinemas today.
The movie has given birth to a spree of continuous controversies, eager excitement, and high hopes, making it the most-talked movie of the season after Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Based on Hussain Zaidi’s crime novel “Mumbai Avengers”, the fantasy thriller reminisces and responses to the series of attacks on Mumbai’s Taj Hotel in 2008. The Bollywood Nawab is playing the role of an Indian agent, Daniyal who is on a mission to catch the mastermind behind the blasts that took the Bombay city by storm. Kat too plays the role of a secret agent in the movie.
Apparently, Phantom turned out to be an unwelcoming dose of entertainment for the Pakistani audience with the combative issue highlighted in the movie.
Consequently, the feature film has resulted in a ban in the nation, followed by a rain of arguments between Saif Ali Khan and Pakistani stars, Hamza Ali Abbasi, and Shaan.
Now that it has released in India, Twitter town is abuzz with their reviews on the movie. Check how acclaimed movie critics and Twitterati across the border responded to Phantom’s tale.
