The entire shot took place at one shot.Another such instance when the local dwellers were watching Saans Bhi kabhi bahu thi, and right at that time the goons attacked and with Gunfires they proceed to Sardar Khan’s place. Another long running single shot.There were several other instances of such cinematic beauties,inclusive of some camera eye shots and the editing work of the action sequences and chase scenes make it seem like the viewers are living within it.
