Typical Bollywood time pass movie
21 September 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rajkumar Santoshi tries another Andaz Apna Apna, of course he couldn't, but the film is still alright. Not a great movie, not even good enough if you expect the talent of Santoshi to shine through, but as a movie, it entertains.

And is that not what a movie is supposed to do? The songs are good, actors are okay, sometimes to add to the comics, there is some ham which probably could have been trimmed. Comedy, Romance, Item song, Maa-Beta, Baap-beta, good cop bad cop, everything is there as Shahid Kapoor says in the movie. There is a guest appearance by Salman Khan also.

Should you pay to watch the movie? Maybe not, you wont definitely wont lose your money, the songs itself are worth it, but then you wont miss it if you don't see it and anyway it will be in cable in a few weeks.
