Doesn't live up to the hype
26 September 2007 | by DingatacaSee all my reviews

Average music, average acting, not to mention an average script, and lastly, average directing. I was expecting a lot more from Sanjay Dutt, as I love his movies. Sadly, I was disappointed. The only half-decent thing is the plot. Its not a ripoff like many Bollywood movies, and has some originality to it. Note that I said some, not all.

Shahid Kapur is appalling, he does a horrible job and does not fit into character at all. Amrita Rao does not do anything apart from looking pretty, and I raised my eyebrows with Arshad Warsi's performance. I like him as an actor, he has done great roles, but I don't like this one. The character was very fake.

To sum it up: VLHTA is mostly a film that we will be enjoyed by kids. There isn't much point in the movie at all, its what I would call "rubbish". Even Sanjay Dutt's incredible presence could not save this movie.
