I am still repenting why i saw this movie
26 May 2006 | by jitenk2See all my reviews

Yes, this is a remake of John Q. Yes, you cannot help compare to Denzel. However, this is definitely one of the worst movies of Sanjay Dutt. He has given worst performance. He is at the bottom of his game in this movie. You cannot help but keep on forwarding the movie in case u are watching it on computer,sorry for you if you find yourself in a theatre while watching. I have seen John Q and was wondering if it will be a waste of time. However, as movie progressed Sanjay has really made it stupid to watch . Recently there has been a string on nonsense movies coming ,this movie tops the list.The plot is completely meaningless. I just hope the choice of actors were better. Amisha is not suited for the role at all.Amisha was not able to bring or compliment the emotions needed. Even her make up was not suited for the role. She is pretty dumb to adapt to roles. I saw her teesri aankh. Even there she was lame. For her role she should have made an attempt to learn the sign language. So in this respect this was a half hearted attempt by the director and producer. I think failure of movie can be blamed on the whole team.I am still repenting why i saw this movie and why the hell m even commenting on it.May God forgive me ...............
