Saaho Review: The Lousy Plot Shatters All Hopes from This Widely-Hyped Flick

When Saaho teaser and various posters surfaced and trend widely, the audience hoped that Prabhas is coming up with something ethereal.

Saaho songs in Hindi are composed by Tanishk Bagchi and Guru Randhawa and they sound fine when you listen to them casually, but they have no impact along with a screenplay.
