Not as bad as other Indian movies.
12 April 2010 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

I started watching Indian movies since I saw the "chance pe dance" in a movie theater, because I thought that shahid kapoor looks cute. and he dances well.

I found this DVD at a local library. And the cover looks so ugly, it is so dark, and boring. I thought that this movie is probably just like the cover. It is actually better than some other movies which Shahid kapoor were in.

I am rating this movie a 8 because it is better than some other silly Indian comedy movies. Some scenes actually made me laugh. At first, I thought that the storyline is really good, it reminded me of the movie "death on the nile river", it has the "Agatha Christie" kind of mystery. Then I got on here, and read that this movie is actually just a copy of some other movies. So I should lower one point for it, but since it is rated so low, i am going to keep the 8 rating.

Shahid Kapoor is really good, his eyes alone can act. I wonder if he will become a big star if he gets an USA accent, and comes to work in Hollywood. Anyway, my favorite scene was when he and pyriya opened the suitcase in the police station, their reactions were purely comical, very funny. The other couple's reaction were also very funny.

Indian movies tend to be long, at least two hours long. If they cut the some unnecessary scenes, and formed its own original story. This movie could be a hot hit. It combined hot dancing with a mystery which is quite unique. Hollywood hardly ever makes movies like that. The ending was a surprise to me, I totally didn't expect the killer. I also like those cheesy pick up lines that Rocky uses,
