Kajol entertains.
17 July 2016 | by josephrahulSee all my reviews

Kajol is the only face in this movie... Thought the movie is highly predictable and even contains some loose plots. But the charm of Kajol amused us. Yes there are some funny slap scenes in the starting where Kajol slaps Shekhar on the plane. Yet she entertains. Her comic appearance in most of the scenes is incredible. Though the original one differs, as in the original one Megh Ryan leaves her boy friend in a friendly manner. But in the Hindi version Kajol in great fury gives thunderous tight slaps to her ex when she gets him back from an another girl of his. Later on she unites with her real life lover. Great movie and Kajol rocks in everyone scene because it's the only movie where she dominates over the lovers.
