The Ghani family is shown to be belonging to the Shi'ite stream of Islam. When the scion of the Ghani clan, Jahanzeb, is getting married to Noor, the Imam is reciting Su'rah Fateha. When the recital concludes, all the people present say "Ameen" in unison. However, in the Shi'ite stream, the conclusion of Su'rah Fateha elicits the response of "Alhamdulillahi Rab-il-Aalaameen" and not "Ameen". See more »

Alternate Versions

An uncut 15 classification was available. (The Tamil language version of the film was the version classified and released in the United Kingdom, to date the Hindi version has neither been classified nor released in the United Kingdom).

Amazing Movie
4 February 2013 | by livinonprayerSee all my reviews

OK, many people gave negative reviews because they were not able to keep up with the plot. This movie has everything, action, drama, comedy, romance, tragedy, amazing cinematography, superb songs, and quite unique style of handling a movie.

Although superficially it may look like a movie with three protagonist with same name 'David', last few minutes really define the movie name and common string that holds all three stories together.

Some references to decide whether you'll like it or not

If you like Quentin Tarantino - Please go watch David

If you love rock music -just watch the movie for "Mast Kaladar" rock version

If you can like Neil Nitin Mukesh - this is a must watch

If you like art movies - you are on borderline

If you like Amir Khan's performance in Talaash - you are on borderline

If you like Karan Johar movies - this is waste of money for you

If you love Shahrukh Khan - you'll hate this flick

If you like Amir Khan in 3Idiots - you won't like this one

Overall I am kind of disappointed it got so less collection at box office. I might watch it again in theater.
