One runs out of superlatives while commenting on this masterpiece, but the one word for it is: EXCELLENT. I won't go into details of this movie, but the tremendous performance of Hrithik gives signs of an actor coming of age. Starting from his college days to his maturity as a military officer, the trials & tribulations that the urban youth goes through is truthfully portrayed in the movie. Preity Zinta's role as a reporter gives way to her usual peppy self & is completely adorable. Mr.Amitabh Bachan's & Mr.Puri's role though small but are prominent as also the acting by the other soldiers. Lakshya is a very different movie from others dealing with the same issue like 'LOC:Kargil' did, though there are many characters in the movie but each are handled aptly and leaves a lasting impression on the mind.
The cinematography by Christopher Popp was breathtaking as well as the music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Shot in the raw & inhospitable beauty of Kashmir, the movie is exceptional.
On the whole good entertainment from an accomplished director like Farhan Akhtar, whose first movie is still my favourite.
