Mostly Good
31 March 2017 | by GypsiBSee all my reviews

In this romantic comedy/drama, Shyam (Salman Khan) is a rich man working in London who travels to India to find a bride (played by the lovely Sridevi). While there, enemies form a plan to kill him and take his fortune.

To begin with, the plot is a good one and the story is interesting and engaging. However, in the last 45 minutes or so, the plot becomes convoluted, and the film becomes less enjoyable. The musical numbers are good, though, with beautiful costumes and some impressive choreography. Overall, it's a solidly good film throughout most of it, and is worth watching despite the mishmash toward the end.
