Great Fun!!
26 May 2009 | by GujSee all my reviews

I have seen my fair share of Bollywood movies, and was quite anxious to see this movie in particular as it was the first Hindi movie i owned on Blu-Ray, and boy did it not upset!! Watching this movie at home i was impressed, the lavish colours, beautiful sets and awesome intentional overacting!

This movie is not meant for Filmfare awards, thats not why it was created. this is a sort of light-hearted black comedy that was created to entertain (even though it received 10 Filmfare award nods) i started watching this during a break from exam revision and ended up watching the whole thing, i just couldn't get enough.

There are more cameo appearances than one could shake a stick at, and this made the film fun for the young or old, having family members pause the movie and trying to guess who they are is just awesomely well done and sooo captivating from Farah Khan, really brings people together, and ignites the Bollywood in you.

This movie also introduces Deepika Padukone, and my gosh i could not believe this was her first movie. she was amazing, really lit up the screen when you saw how beautiful she is portraying a 70's heroine. SRK's performance and new appearance are both awesome, as hes allowed to act (and strut) his ass off, of which he does very well, and its understandable why he is crowned King Khan. all i can really say about him is "Vaah! Kya acting kar raha hai!... Vaah! Kya acting kar raha hai!"

All in all this movie is fun, exciting, entertaining and a great laugh. i highly recommend viewing this on Blu-Ray and letting those lush on-screen colours EXPLODE!!
