Could of been much better
10 November 2007 | by billyb007See all my reviews

I think the film is OK, as said had the potential to be 10 stars.

There is good acting from most of the cast, but the story did drag on a little...the first half of the film was excellent, good performances, every second of the first half was good, no scene was wasted it was full of emotion, lots of laughter, and overall seeming to be a very enjoyable movie! I recommend people to watch this film, mainly because its a shahrukh film, the only downside is the second half, the story is not good, i feel u'll understand watching the film. The story could of had a better ending, however i feel the entertainment value is very high, drawn to the fact that there is almost every star in bollywood in the film. good film 7/10
