Alternate Versions

In the UK, the film was first shown to the BBFC in an advice screening, with the intention of obtaining a '12A' rating. The BBFC stated that they would have to make edits to "a number of scenes of strong bloody violence", and the film was pre-cut prior to submission. However, the distributors had not edited the film enough in one scene, meaning that another 57 seconds were removed before achieving the desired '12A' certificate. See more »

Don't waste your time
25 January 2017 | by vaibhav-cgiSee all my reviews

I did not want to watch this one but my friends fetch me there.

They were very enthusiastic about this film but in last they end up felt cheated with the hype.

Another meaningless flick from SRK.

He did what he do best is to create hype without any substance.

Another formula movie with an item number and some cheesy dialogues.

I would say he is done and should concentrate doing other things rather than acting.

And I was right I shouldn't have wasted my time.

and neither should you.

regards

Vaibhav
