Awesome movie
28 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was an awesome fun movie that we don't get much in our Indian film industry as the top directors like Karan Johar are making only emotional movies. I liked everything about this movie, and the music was superb. Also the actors played a very great role which includes Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Javed Jaffrey, and all the people who were part of the movie. And it surely matches up to its tag line: Don't worry be happy. Its a very good lesson for people especially Indian people as they get very tensed out really fast and look at the negative side of their lives. This movie teaches us how to tackle these everyday and real-life situations. And behind all that to always be happy as we never know if we will be alive the next day. The overall mood of the movie was not tragic at all, and that's what I liked especially about it. SRK is my favorite actor but he nowadays only appears in emotional movies so he should also appear in these kinds of movies, and I am telling you I seriously hate tragic movies. Because, you know in India people watch those Ekta Kapoor's daily soaps which has nothing but mostly tragedy. I say if TV serials and movies are all going to be tragic then there will be no fun. Hats off to this movie and I hope bollywood produces more of these kinds of movies so that watching movie can be fun again.
