Watch it if you are a big fan of Lisa Ray, otherwise please don't.
9 April 2013 | by (Dhaka, Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Watch it if you are a big fan of Lisa Ray, as I did. But in the end, I had the feeling, what a shameful waste of time. What a disgrace!!! Very much predictable story. You can sort the whole movie out just after watching only 15 minutes. Horrible acting by most of the characters except Kal Penn. But he is not the lead actor in the movie. Sunil Malhotra, the lead actor did a horrible job. He has no sense of acting. Asrani couldn't accommodate himself, I think. And Purva Bedi!!! What she was doing!!! Even Lisa Ray hadn't much to do. Only cliché dialogs. But as usual, she was looking hot and gorgeous. If you like her so much, you may watch this melodramatic disaster.
