Weak script, miscast Abhishek and utterly inept film-making
28 January 2009 | by long-fordSee all my reviews

A horrendously miscast Abhishek Bachchan is just one of many problems plaguing 'Drona'. It's apparent that the film's makers were so obsessed with grand locations and glitzy costumes that they forgot about the script. Many of the action sequences come across as poor rip-offs of Dhoom 2. Abhishek is a fine actor but he's clearly not right for the role. Priyanks Chopra is the only actor to emerge unscathed. Kay Kay is horribly over the top as the demonic villain. Too long to qualify even as a guilty pleasure, Drona is simply an example of inept film making. Avoid.

Overall 1/10
