The film opened with a collection of news footage and images to set the stage in a turmoil in Africa years back. The film introduced the main characters of the film, one by one gently giving the audience a peek into their different personalities guided by gestures and actions. A limited number of characters makes this film very effective. The action scenes and stunts were highly believable and stunningly impressive. Even the romantic scenes in the film were done tastefully.
