I believe there is no credit in copying a movie like the way Sanjay Gupta does.It is unethical on his part, and by seeing the movie I also feel a part of this crime.But in this part of the world ( i.e India) people hardly care,even songs are copied by the likes of Pritam and credit is never given.
So, to comment on how the movie was , would be a way to validate what Sanjay Gupta has done.I can only say that Old Boy is a wonderful movie and is better than Zinda in every possible way.There are lots of goof ups in the movie,the fight scenes are not synchronized, the acting is below standard (particularly John Abraham).I feel except the title track nothing is good.
