Goofs

Even though the branding of the car is a Chevrolet Aveo, the actual racing car is a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo's have been synonymous with racing for a very long time in the United States and abroad. Chevrolet did the name swap to fire Indians (both at home and NRIs) up about the Chevrolet Aveo.

Bore a Rum Pum... Pum
10 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There are few films I think deserve a dismal rating. Like any other end product, I realize a lot of effort goes into the making of a movie. But this flick lacks any real redemptive qualities. It wastes a talented cast, a big budget, good music directors and lyricist. I lay the blame solely at the feet of the inexperienced director, Siddharth Anand. I still can't believe Mr Anand's first movie, Salaam Namaste, was a success. But at least that one had some half decent tunes and an annoying, but entertaining Javed Jaffrey to pass the time. I decided to give Siddharth another chance, after all he was only in his twenties when he directed his first movie. Bad idea. This tale of rags to riches to rags to riches is inane, superficial and boring as hell.
