A terrible plot, terrible dialog's, and a terrible movie
21 December 2004 | by msmysSee all my reviews

I watched the movie, and was dismayed to say the least that the movie failed to communicate with me as an audience. The language would put to shame the street loafers.

The plot; a father forcing none of his son to marry, seems far-fetched.

The idea of a grandmother asking her grand kid to mess up with an enemy would only draw feeble minded's attention.

...and I was waiting the whole movie for a laugh, and laugh I did on my stupidity to waste 3 hours to convince myself that the movie is not even worth a first look.

Hope it saves YOUR time!
