Audience Member MOVIE IS GREAT AND CONTENT IS EXCELLENT. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Zakhm is a lovely and emotional movie. This movie was a type of art movie and was depressing. It quite successful exposed the real consequences of riots between different communities in the name of religion. Ajay Devgan won a national award for his acting in a lead role but I think Pooja Bhatt also deserved national award. Some Songs are beautifull and full of sentiments. You will be emotional by the end of the movie and you will surely love (unless you don't love art drama movies) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Mahesh Bhatt at his best- telling a story from his own life- Ajay Devgn, Kunal Khemu, Pooja Bhatt- their best performances till date. MM Kreem's soundtrack is a delight. MUST WATCH. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Some wounds can never be healed. And even if they do, they leave back scars. Zakhm is one such tale of love in midst of cold heartless hatered. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A sensitive topic dealt with quite well. A good story well directed and well enacted. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member ajay devgan films has always been an awesome choice, never missed it so far and this film has definitely proven to be outstandingly awesome Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
