Better wasting 200 Rs Eating at KFc then at this movie. Overacting and lack of performances and not good story line. Go watch Chennai Express Dobara then this.. Akki give me my money back... Critics were right this movie is not worth watching even once. Ekta worry was right because she knew that this film won't make enough in front of Chennai express and today also watched this because Chennai express was houseful and easily got ticket for this one. Ajay devgan, Emran Hasmi and Randeep hooda performances were powerful in first part the main reason behind success of first part. Akshay kumar suits more in comedy then in this type of role.
