Not so bad, really.
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gee whiz! So many people I've spoken with are so hard on this movie! I saw this movie and really enjoyed it. Of course, Aamir Khan was great and he did carry a lot of the movie, but every movie I've seen with him he tends to outshine everyone else.

Am I so alone? Was there ANYONE else out there that enjoyed this film? I really thought Faisal was a good fit for the character he played. Clue me in - why is everyone so harsh on this film? Is it because they can't see past Sholay?

I would like to see more movies in this style; of course, there are so many Bollywood movies I might die before I am about to see 1/5 of them, but I always remember to turn off my brain and try to see the film as the directors meant it to be seen; and not to make comparisons. If we tried to compare every actor to Aamir, they'd all be found wanting.

All the Best to everyone; and chin up, Faisal! Someone out here thinks you are a success at what you do. I loved Shankar.
