      2. Absolutimo, I loved both but even my children liked these movies (which is saying alot!) . ..on your list, Baahubaali, Dangaal, and 3 Idiots were amongst others they enjoyed too πŸ‘ . . . whereas movies like 1942 and Hero (Jackie Shroff), Pakeezah and Aamar Akbar Anthony are some that I like, but they kind of roll their eyes at their buddhi amma’s choices πŸ™„πŸ€£
