I meant to ask about audio description which they said MNIK has.
Inbuilt narration is a part of many movies, but  it hardly gives all the details of visuals.

I have had an experience of watching this movie on cable ,mr khan is
narrating in the movie,the dialogue is quite clear to understand .
Only 2 places I had to ask what is happening .for those who can't hear
lip reading is clearly visible or which dialogue is not seen is shown
by action.
Very good script.
_______
regards namita.
