Great, great fun
7 November 2007 | by ani218122See all my reviews

This is one film I would like to see over and over again. This is one film my sons would like to see over and over again. This is one film which most of my friends wouldn't mind seeing a second time. In fact, this film was proposed by a student who went on to become the Institute topper at IIT Kharagpur, India's premier Engineering College, for a Hall Day show.

This is a film which has a single motive. To have fun. Unadulterated fun. Fun which can be shared by all. This film can be viewed with friends, kids, parents, spouse.. the entire lot.

The English subtitle, available in India is titled 'Crazy boys of the game'
