First Song...Long Shot. Actors movie.Everything else is Bad.
4 December 2002 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews



All three Actors---- Beautiful Twinkle Khanna, Faisal Khan, and Aamir Khan have worked very well in very bad movie.

It is Twinkle Khanna's movie.

Bad Screenplay. Bad Direction. Everything is very bad.

First Song Mela is very good.

Long shot makes no impression at all.

There is a Hollywood movie on Boxing... where it makes sense.

Movie Gandhi also has many long shots.

Thanks and Regards.
