An Enjoyble movie.
27 April 2008 | by (Copenhagen , Denmark) – See all my reviews

I read the critics reviews of the movie, and the report didn't scare me to watch it in the cinema...and Iam glad I saw it.

The movie is a well done movie, the story could have been stronger, but the effects and camera work is Super.

Akshay Kumar is the best in the movie, and specially the way the fighting scenes have been choreographed was a delight to watch.

Kareena Kapoor is good,but she is too thin now..it doesn't suit her to look so skinny just cause of a Bikini scene...but her acting was good.

Saif was good too..And Anil Kapoor was OK.

All in all, forget the critics and go watch the movie.
