Highly recommended! not to go watch this movie!, 15 January 2009
Author: madankumarse from India

Akshay has reached a super stardom. But he has become over confident of his stature today. He's taking his fans for granted! This movie like Tashan is an utter disappointment! High time Akshay gives his fans movies that are memorable, spectacular and remarkable rather than these mindless ones!

There are couple of scenes in the movie which surely tickles your funny bone to the core! But, the way the story drags and too many coincidences gets you on your nerves.

Initially the movie picks up alright. But, gradually you begin to start looking at your watch or at least start yawning!

Although Akshay delivers his usual best, it feels he's wasting his talent in such mindless movies. All other actors are acted okay, but finally the storyline, humor or the narration doesn't give that punch.

Today's audiences need some realistic movies & not stupid ones like this!
