great movie but not original :(
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One great movie with wonderful dialogues, great performances, superb songs and nice screenplay but still can't digest the fact that it has been copied from some French movie.

I just happened to browse through some videos in youtube and realized that the hit song devudaa is copied from Ricky Martin's song and when I was browsing related videos I found that this is a straight lift from Banlieue 13.

Still all credit to director and Mahesh for such a great display. It has raised Mahesh to next level and people see him as the only guy who can reach to the heights of Chiru
