poor editing and poor concept....A COPY
13 September 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Well, comparing this movie with romantic comedy like Hum Tum or some other will not be justified This is a very different movie with a very bold story...may be Indian audience is not ready for this. This movie is made with extraordinary outfits which are really imaginary...characters are imaginary too i mean the whole movie was full of CRAP (said 50 times by Saif) ...cmmon Indian film makers...just because Hum Tum was a HIT does not mean you can make us fool.

Yes there were positives and Negatives in the movie as they are in all movies...but it went really boring at times...

could have been better
