Disappointing!!!
6 December 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I said disappointing for a reason and that is, when you see a film starred by Ajay Devgan, Directed By Prabhu Deva, You naturally start to think that the film should be 'Interesting, A Must Watch' Should Be Good' that kind of thoughts easily comes to our mind because we expect something different something spectacular to be delivered, But if we can't get that then disappointment comes naturally and that is obvious.

I'm not saying that the film was Bakwaas, Total Crap, Utterly Disgusting like the other reviewers here. But I'm sorry to say that it was truly not enough to be memorable one. Let me come to the details first..

There are several Pros and Cons, I'll try to enlist as much as possible...So?

Let's come to the points quickly...

Cons....

1. Music was Average {Could've been better}.

2. First half was something fresh but looks dull with silly dialogs and witty expressions.

3. I personally think Kunaal Roy Kapur's character was unnecessary and was totally wasted.

4. Sonakshi Sinha was good in her part of role but seems to be repetitive.

5. The Main Antagonist does not look like a villain at all. He misses the charm of Bad Character. {Prakash Raj Would've been a better choice}.

6. Editing was fuzzy.

7. The film has 2 Hour and 26 Mins of Run Time and that is something that feels dragged a little bit.

Now the {+} points...

Pros....

1. New type of actions were great to watch. Action Sequences were executed properly.

2. Ajay Devgan truly justified his role, I doubt if any other actor can carry the role to that level.

3. Yami Gautam acted very well in her small but effective role.

4. Even the leading bad lady, I mean Manasvi {She's damn hot really :D} did her job well.

5. I did not like the first half, actually it was slow and dull but the second half was good and catches up the pace it needs.

After all if you are either a Ajay Devgan or Prabhu Deva Fan then You should watch it, you will enjoy the film, but don't keep so much expectations as I did :{ you will be disappointed as much as I am now!!!
