the one thing other reviewers forgot...
18 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

The choreography was somewhere between bizarre and atrocious. Okay, I didn't go into this expecting Hamlet or Pulp Fiction, but... At least with Bollywood you usually get some catchy songs and interesting dance numbers. Most of the music is blah-synth, a few of the songs are decent though I can't be bothered to point them out - yawn - but the choreography was on par with the rest of the bad acting, horrible editing, dopey dialogue, etc.

One star was earned just because Capetown was in the movie. Nice to see Bollywood go overseas on location.
