Tweet Review: Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'
'Django Unchained' is the story of a slave (Jamie Foxx) and his relationship with his master.

New Delhi: Quentin Tarantino has delivered several cult films in the past. But critics and masses feel that Tarantino's latest 'Django Unchained' is by far the director's best.

Set at a time when slavery dominated America, the story is of a slave (Jamie Foxx) whose freedom is bought by a former dentist, played by Christoph Waltz. The two set off as bounty hunters, rounding up robbers and cattle rustlers before turning their attention to brutal plantation owners in America's Deep South.

Tarantino is well-versed in delivering violence. But the director said he faced 'a lot of trepidation' about filming the slavery scenes. The director was in fact hesitant to ask black actors to play slaves who are shackled and whipped initially and even considered filming outside of the United States.

The film is releasing in India this Friday. Shomini Sen of IBNLive is inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of 'Django Unchained'.

2:15 PM: Quentin Tarantino's #DjangoUnchained finally comes to India! We will be live tweeting the review in a while. Stay tuned.
