Terrible movie
20 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to watch this at a movie theater near Boston and had to walk out as it was so unbearable. The characters lacked any depth and the sequence of events, especially the songs, made no logical sense. The dialogs sounded lame and the story had sets and concepts that were completely unrealistic. Where in India can you find a school that looks so magnificent or has cheerleaders?!

I am capable of enjoying an occasional chick flick or Bollywood movie with songs; however this one was hard to go through.

This movie deserves nothing more than a 1 star. The director Karan Johar is more entertaining in his gossip talk shows than he is with his movie making.
