When I saw the first frame of this film, it felt like I am watching a documentary on BBC Earth. An eagle, metaphorically used in the film’s title, in hunt of a lamb. A decent scene, captured beautifully via the slow-motion technique, that made me check the menu option again to ensure I am still watching the movie and haven’t mistakenly turned on some Nat Geo show. It was precise, a visual delight!
‘Torbaaz’ is not a film, it’s a document of war-torn Afghanistan and the spirit of its people. How cricket saved this country, and how the Taliban, in the name of Jihad, is converting innocent children and their helpless families into trained suicide bombers.
