Low IQ Direction
20 June 2012 | by (mumbai) – See all my reviews

Meaningless Disgusting Crap made just to earn profit. I don't really understand the concept of these movies,why are they liked in masses. They just followed the trend like previous bollywoods hits i.e Dabang and Singham - A Strong armed Police officer with mustaches. Wearing Aviator framed Shades, Tamil Fight action scenes. Senseless Dialogues repeated in every 15mins. Idiotic emotional drama. Idiotic Villain. Cheap Item song to attract pervert crowd. Akshay Kumar is a respectable person and a good actor,I really used to like him.God only knows why he's selecting such types of movies PS- The movie was so dumb actually made me write a review for the first time.
