Overrated Film
25 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Expectations of the film was high. Successful director, Production house with wide reach, protagonist is a photographer(a rare phenomenon), great trailer song. But that's the end of the positives. Film could not deliver anything more on the show day. It is the same old story : "Hero fights the bad guys all by himself and saves the world" Couple this formula with unrealistic situations( which,by the way, are abundant in this film), an heroine who cant "act". Moreover few songs were just "inserted" into the plot.They just didn't fit in.

Overall a normal movie pictured in a good way.Definitely watchable.But highly overrated.
