This movie certainly belongs on Lifetime, 11 December 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

No, I didn't watch it there, but that is where it belongs.

It could have been shortened at least a half an hour by taking out all those love songs and walking through the field or on the beach, but I guess that's Bollywood.

I watched it because the lead (Kunal Khemu) came from Kashmir after terrorists threw out his family and ended up in Mumbai. A timely story, but he wasn't fighting terrorists, he was searching for those who took pictures of he and his wife on their honeymoon and plastered them on the Internet. No, you won't see anything - they don't even kiss on screen.

But, we do get a little samurai action towards the end as one man finds his conscience. Of course our hero destroys the porn business, releases all the girls, and rides off into the sunset with the star (Deepal Shaw).
