The third film in Yash Raj Films’ maiden Spy Universe franchise has been a box office draw since its announcement due to its star-studded casting.

One of the most-hyped movies in 2017, and a sequel to Salman Khan’s blockbuster presentation, Ek Tha Tiger, became one of the year’s highest-grossing Hindi action movies.

But, most importantly, its success can also be credited to its simple yet sophisticated storyline, which is both emotional and engaging in equal measures. This movie, the second entry into YRF’s recently launched Spyverse, can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.
