Quentin Tarantino Meets Bollywood Style of Action
1 May 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

im pretty sorry!! i thought it was kinda UNIQUE! but he Overdid for sure! the Director's 40 Crore Went STRAIGHT LOSS!!!

Saif, Akshay, Kareena and Anil were the only people who were HOLDING on this movie!! well i would say Kareena and Akshay Only!

This Movie Story is really Unique! Saif (Jimmy Cliff) a Call Center Executive a Hottie Hot Hottie of the Call Center accidentally somehow meets Kareena (Pooja Singh A.K.A Gudiya) Standing in the Rain and Falls in love with her! Now Kareena is an Secretary working for Anil Kapoor (Bhayaji)! Now Bhaiyaji is a Big Don and enjoys Killing People! but Kareena and Saif Both have to Job Which is to Teach Bhayaji English or Eenglis!! After feeling Pity for Kareena! Saif decides to help her pay the debt to Bhayaji which Kareena has for him due to her late father!! she Double Crosses Bhayaji and Saif and goes off to live her life! Leaving Jimmy Behind and his love Forever! In this Case Bhaiyaji Captures Saif and Hires a Bounty Hunter Akshay Kumar (Bachchan Pandey)**Played Wonderfully** Akshay is now hunting Kareena and Bhaiyaji has ordered to bring her home alive ! Through the Journey Saif and Kareena Decides to Run Far away for Bhaiyaji with the stolen money!! but Akshay is in way They Decide to Double Cross him too! But through the journey Akshay tells the Story about his childhood! And reminds Kareena that he loved a girl named Gudiya and Kareena gets Sentimental and Decides to Double Cross Saif this time! in between Anil Kapoor! Gets Angrier when Bachchan Pandey Comes home Empty handed! and gets Sentenced In Death! and Now its upto Kareena To save her Love and Saif to save himself!

The Storyline is a Very Unique Composition By Vijay Krishna Acharya!! Its something New i saw but Lack of Powerful Script The Movie Falls Below the Mark Actually FALLS totally!

At the B.O it got Rejected Big TIME!! They declared THis movie Weaker than RGV ki Aag! LOL

Overall Experience!

Actors: Saif Ali Khan (Jimmy Cliff) Acts Brilliantly as a Playboy! but Gets Neglected Throughout the Movie! His Success of RACE falls on Flat on the Ground Kareena Kapoor (Pooja Singh)! She Looks incredibly YOUNG No Doubt! She looks like a Teenager! But carried off the role Brilliantly! and carries off the bikini with excellency! She is Still Super Strong after Jab We Met. Akshay Kumar (Bachchan Pandey)! What an Awesome Role! He is my Favorite Actor! and he just Blew me Away by playing a ANPARD Bounty Hunter! He is RIDING HIGH Since Garam Masala Anil Kapoor (Lakhan Singh Ballebaaz A.K.A Bhayaji)! Very Well Executed Role! He Played it Nicely as a Killer and a Big Gangster!

Well Acting Marks They Deserve!

Saif --------- 8/10 Kareena -------- 10/10 Akshay --------- 10/10 Anil Kapoor ----- 10/10

The Story which is gracefully AWARDED at the B.O is 2 and Half Stars out of 5 but ill give it 8 basically Indian Audience is expecting a MASALA movie! but they hate it because it turns out to be TWISTER! like Saawariya! No Smoking! Dor! which i think were MASTERPIECES!

so the Story is 8

Action is Great! but at some points it looks Childish so ill give 8/10

The Music is Only good for Car Stereos and Home Use Only IT FAILS Miserbly in the MOVIE!!! except Dil Dance Maare! it was Funny

Music: Vishal - Shekhar 7/10

the Total OVERCOME is 8/10

Go watch this Movie only if you are a FAN of Mind twisting movies and Tarantino movies LOL!!!
