A Great Movie
25 March 2011 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

It's nice to see a movie with all real Indian actors as opposed to these rats from Kabul who should be selling kabobs and these scums belong in the gutter. These three idiots are ugly talentless benchods who should never been allowed in the Indian cinema. These scums can't act or produce a decent movie. This is one of the better movie from Yash Chopra albeit a long drawn and slightly too melodramatic for the younger crowd. Incredible acting from Rani who can never fail no matter what the role is. The story is very real with all the right masala for the folks who really appreciate movies. Few of the songs could have been skipped but then again this is the staple of Indian cinema. The movie is gripping for a family drama and it is mostly Rani's memorable acting that the audience can't get enough of and fine direction by Aditya Chopra.
