very nice remake
15 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie every scene is worth watching even though every scene is cleanly copied from collateral it has its unique style of Indian blend so if this the idea was Indian well people would say it is an original Indian movie it is a very decent remake of collateral most Indian movies aren't very good remakes usually when they are based upon American movies and now for the acting emraan hashmi is a little goofy even though he does a good job i have to say for irfan khan his character is actually portrayed even more deadly than collateral's tom cruise and he has done a very good seemingly because his character is more developed than that of emraan hashmi overall 8/10 is the rating i give it because it establishes its own unique style on the movie being a remake.
