super genuine ... and my childhood heroes.. so happy to see !
2 February 2015 | by dev646See all my reviews

My first review in IMDb and I'm happy this is for my childhood heroes. I listened to BSB in my friend's home and addicted to those mind boggling songs from then on. And I'm so happy to see such a nice documentary has been made after such a long time, without deleting any essence of the pain and hardships they went through. They have done a wonderful job of coming back after 20 years and behind the scenes of the shows, what thought and actions and hard work they had to go through, following each stage in their life, everything is well shown.

Thank you, thanks a lot ! This is a not to miss documentary with all it's purity preserved and all music fans should definitely see this.
