complete surprise
12 May 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

My experiences with Bollywood movies are quite good. Although I only watched the ones that had a higher rating. So it's normal that they are good.

This movie is somewhat different from the other movies I've watched. Those were more comedy's. This movie also his a comedy side. But it's much more than that. It's much more complex than a comedy. The other personality's from Ambi are very interesting. Anniyan and Remo. Anniyan is his dark side and Remo his romantic side. I won't tell you any more. Because if you like to see something different from India watch this.

Good luck with finding it! I'm lucky I had the opportunity to watch this movie.
