When Akshay is presenting Kareena with a ring underwater, you can clearly see that the hand on which the ring is put on has short nails. In the very next shot Kareena Kapoor is shown with long nails and pink nail polish. All other scenes before and after she isn't wearing any paint on her nails. See more »
Lower your expectation and presto - its total time-pass!
Well, with the media taking its toll on Kambakkht Ishq & Akshay Kumar - the expectations runs low and the movie turns out better than expected. Akshay Kumar must be kicking himself not having exercised caution (read that "choose wisely") when he was just between the cup-and-the-lip. Lightning doesn't strike twice my dear friend.
Anyways, the love-you & loathe you sequences start from the word go and until it reaches finale there is a fair share of story interlaced with emotion, drama, comedy, tragedy etc. Having said that, there was immense potential to improvise - but hey, who am I to say!
¤ Akshay Kumar:: Much before he struck gold I always carried an opinion that give him a nickel and Akshay delivers in dimes. Post success streak that became his style. And now - I am back to my original opinion.
¤ Kareena:: The "Poo" character return (albeit in size zero!).
¤ Javed Jaffery:: Seriously, what was he doing there?
¤ Aftab & Amrita:: Glorified junior-artistes. Reminds me of Rajendranath/ Shobha Khote of 60's.
¤ Vindu:: Good to see after a long hiatus. And trying a hand at comedy, eh?
¤ Boman Irani & Kiron Kher:: Under-utilisation at its best. Seriously - is money everything?
¤ Hollywood star-cast:: Beyond my comprehension as to why they were there in the first place. Too much of money to flaunt around I guess. The plot could have easily been based in India.
¤ Sabir Khan:: Obviously, the master doesn't teach everything to the disciple (ref. Mujhse Shaadi Karogi!)
¤ Nadiadwala:: Time to pull up your socks and ensure quality goods are delivered under your baton.
Finally, the movie is completely inspired (should I abstain from the word plagiarised?) by Pammal K. Sambandam. Had the project been executed legally involving the great thespian to overlook the proceedings - the results would have been far more superior. On that same note, yesterday I read the producers of Namaste London suing the Bengali filmmaker for copyright infringement. Hello Mr. Akshay Kumar... pot calling the kettle black eh?
