Huge waste of time
18 December 2009 | by kridas1See all my reviews

The movie is far too long, and with no real legs (plot) to stand on, it straddles your mind like a colossal headache. There should be a law to bar Genelia from 'acting'. The film is riddled with clichéd situations and the plot itself meanders from one dead end to another. Songs are passable at the best, irritating most of the times. Characters played by Rajpal Yadav, Shobana and Naseerudin are an insult to these talented actors.

Dialogues are not as bad as the rest of the movie. In fact, at times they carry the movie forward. Akshay does a decent enough job, mainly due to his histrionic skills and direction from Priyadarshan.

Only saving grace is Paresh Rawal. As the elderly dad and then as the 'young' lad, he brings out his range of skills.

Is (was) this the death of Priyadarshan's comedy?
