D - RONA..... and only RONA
4 October 2008 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

firstly I would like to recommend IMDb- the site to have separate rating scheme, where films such as this can be rated in negatives.

my plot -

On an unfortunate evening, I decided to watch DRONA. God what wrong had I done for you to not stop me? Well as fate would have it I went ahead and bought a ticket for this master piece of a film. To make it worse i made a friend of mine to travel 4 hrs in traffic to come and watch this movie with me.

we went in with no expectations. i don't like to go cinemas with a fixed head. i like to let the film surprise me... and yes it did...

Fortunately I missed the first 5mins of the film. The film began with terrible blue petal flying into a house, a stupid kid fooling around with it and an uncle who only has a cameo of few seconds. Of course you remember the spider-man and his old man. this uncle does not say much and gladly dies soon without any significance of any kind. Cruel aunt and mean cousin brother are incharge of Drona's life. Priyanaka Chopra is secretly protecting the so-called protector of the universe.

One day and damn foolish magician finds that DRONA is alive and he has the access to ELXIR. But before the magician can find Drona... Drona has to find himself? how philosophical? he figures out that he is a prince of some ruined land in India and he has a mother who is dressed distastefully as it can be. He father died of getting drowned and he is now responsible of saving the elixir from getting into wrong hands..

The magician comes and exploits the maa beta angle. the Drona decides to give him the elixir for the life of his mom. now how brave is it ?

and then a whole lot of confusing and frustrating events happen. in the end Drona kills the villain.... are we expected to be surprised???

Acting was the worst... i think AB Jr can take acting coaching from Himesh. Priyanaka, looked neither hot sexy or ugly... KK... poor him.

In all the film is a total humiliation of the audiences. Making movies such as this film should be considered terrorism.
