A marvelous acting by Akshay Kumar
28 March 2007 | by webmgtSee all my reviews

Story is good,it revolves around Katrina Kaif(jasmeet, Jazz), A London born and raised Indian girl,She wants to live her life her way and not according to his parents but movie takes a twist with entry of Akshay,whose love forces Katrina to marry him.Besides movie also shows friendship of Indians and Pakistanis in London.Some dialogs and scenes showing greatness of India are also there.Katrina is looking fabulous in movie.Punjabi people will have great fun watching movie. on the whole a nice time pass.Rishi kappor has also done a great acting.Upen is also good.the only thing that sounds insane in movie is Akshay falling in true love with Katrina on first sight and whole story moves further on this base.
