This film has absolutely nothing new to offer. Not in terms of story or treatment or dialogs...The dialogs are pathetic and the romantic situations juvenile. I felt the actors were all okay except of course John Abraham who is simply terrible. The director, I believe, wanted to cash on the star power of Salman and hence had given him lot of screen time but the script was simply not up to the mark to justify his presence. The film has its moments but these come too abruptly and end too quickly. It is a pity that with reasonably good actors and a genuinely good concept, the director manages to make this mess . You can watch it once in a DVD, perhaps, but spending 10 dollars on this is way too much!
