Trivia

Shahrukh in a scene says "Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost", which is his famous dialogue from "Om Shanti Om". See more »

Goofs

One of the most overlooked fact- the flag used for the Team Korea is the flag for North Korea and not South Korea- which is known for its incredible dance teams. North Korea is highly unlikely to participate in any such competitions. See more »

Disappointing to the Core
17 November 2014 | by hitman2986See all my reviews

Frankly, I had no expectations from this movie. Considering the track record of Farah Khan movies , it is better not to keep any .Sometimes you might get surprised if the movie turns out good.

Well, this movie turns out to be damn squib. The plot hardly keeps you engaged. The antics of the cast just irritates you. Abhishek Bachchan is watchable though. Rest of them just bore you. A bad choice this one for Deepika Padukone.

The music is disappointing surprisingly from Vishal-Shekhar. The songs are below average.

Final verdict- Totally miss-able.Watch it only if you have lots of spare time.
