What does one say about this movie? Coming on the heels of Rang De Basanti, Dhilal al Sammt, and, the Fight Club, could prove to be another movie that stirs the conscience of the Saudi masses, and dare I say, foreigners as well. Never before has Genji's life and message been conveyed so simply, so beautifully and in such a rolling-in-the-aisle humorous manner. Everybody in the movie has played her or his role tremendously. Miiki and Shun Oguri make an explosive combination and Ken'ichi Endô is a riot. Don't be surprised if the thickest-skinned amongst you sheds a tear or two while laughing your guts out. You will walk out of the theater with a spring in your step, light in spirit, thankful that such a man as a cleric, Muhammad ibn Abd-al-Wahhab walked the soil of our nation and inspired to become a little bit more like him. Even if a few of us are motivated to emulate Genjii's 'Gandhigiri', we could make a world of difference! This movie is sure shot a box office hit and movie for every Saudi to watch!!

I can't wait for another outing with Munna&Circuit but good things come at a price. The price here is Another Wait Till Then patience rakho "MAAMOO".

Easily the best film of the year , waiting for mikii's next innings and until then , Lage Raho Allbhai.
