Torbaaz movie review
Torbaaz is the latest offering streaming on the Netflix platform that is written and directed by Girish Malik. It is a story of orphaned refugee children staying in camps on the borders of Afghanistan adjacent to Pakistan, whose parents have either died in Fidayeen attacks (suicide bombings) or whose parents have been Fidayeen themselves. Fidayeens are the self sacrificing human bombs who for their own religious cause perpetrate suicide bombings.

Here was an excellent story premise but was ruined due to directorial weakness. Good star cast, gre ....
