An Excellent movie, excellent performance by Harman Baweja, he can act for sure other than dance
15 November 2009 | by paribadarSee all my reviews

People are just too silly to give someone a chance, or may be his timing might not be right b/c of his broke up with his gf. Harman Baweja steals the show, and his powerpack performance as cricket star is much better than his ex-girl friend's Fashion movie.

He just doesn't know how to dance but act very well own his own rather than copying someone. His acting is marvelous, and the movie is excellent. The movie shows, the idol of public isn't god, just a human being who makes mistakes and then regrets. Vijay gets selected to play for India and he hits the series so many times. Then, he sales products, so called sells himself for the big companies and endorsements. Later, he can't stay up with his place b/c of new stardom, pleasure and luxury. He is lost in the lust, then he soon begins to find out that this is not what he wanted to do and begins to transform after a dramatic fall, & starts from scratch and rest see it. Harman Baweja can act and please people give him some courage not discourage someone new. Abhi Bachchan gave his first hit after 4 years in the industry and his first hit was Dhoom backed by the yashraj banner and his pa Big B had five years struggle before he became an angry man. Here is someone from filmy background, & people are just trying to act against him b/c he looks like Hrithik. Hrithik is a god, so if someone has similar looks of him than, why can't you let be b/c it's just a miracle. Although, Harman looks more like his own dad, much taller, more wide bones, fat bones actually, just look at those two together, Hrithik is much skinny & different. Harman rocks, he dances in his first movie, he acts in his second movie and he brilliant in this movie. Quiet surprised that fashion worked b/c of meat show and this didn't because it was a new comer's movie. The stories of two similar just targeting the two different glam world, here it's cricket and in Fashion it was glam world. The girl gets all the awards and the guy doesn't get a hit either, people are just weird.

Anyways, Harman keep up the good work, just grab the right script and then put your 100 % and pray, the rest is up to god. I'm sure your you will have true taste of success sooner. Like this movie, if a star gets his first movie as a hit, then he or she doesn't know the taste of a true success. Success comes after a true failure, and failures are there to learn from them not letting oneself down. Each failure should make you stronger and know whats right. Exceleent talent possessed in you Harman, try to realize the best strength not just the good directors. Shahid Kapoor had his first movie hit, and then followed a series of flops which made him know the difference and he came back up again with hits after years. So, people stop the bad comments about this guy, he has a talent and he just needs a good script and your attention. Victory is a good script and it's the best work of him till date and he is playing, and acting but few dance moves. I would recommend this movie to all and please watch it. A true star, isn't who sells himself and leaves his family but a true star is a person who holds his values and then put the best out there. Harman gets 8 out of 10. The movie gets 7/10 because they could've tried to improve it. The music is alright, with some rajastani background. I guess, too much real star appearances overshadowed Harman's acting but he stands out this time. Awesome work by Harman, Anupamji, Amrita, and others. Excellent show, and i enjoyed it watching it, after long time a feel good movie came about the real stars of cricket. Harman keep up the good work and there are so many fans who want to see you act. Take all the negative comments as a learning step, and positive comments as a backbone to even work hard. People just are comparing him to Hrithik, people please he shares some looks but he isn't related to him, so try not compare with him. Harman is a talented actor and he wants to stand out but has had his wrong times, and has been overshadowed by many expectations b/c his father was a film maker & he moves like Hrithik. There are so many actors who have chosen bad scripts, given flops & even after giving hits and flops earlier in careers. Salman khan's first movie was a flop film, Biwi ho tu asi, and he acted worse in it until, maine pyar kiya and later own Salman has given so many flops in his career, so please don't judge actors. The movie Victory is a victory for Harman, he is very talent and showcases his best in the film.
