Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributors were forced to edit the film to remove a scene of cockfighting as it was considered to breach the requirements of the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. Furthermore the distributors decided to make further changes to the film in order to lower the rating from '15' to '12A'. These additional changes removed detail of a blade embedded in man's head, accompanied by blood spurt, and a bloody bullet impact to chest. See more »

Terrible movie.
9 May 2017 | by rsz-rizSee all my reviews

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. One thing. Lals acting is good. Direction? Vyshak sucks. Even a 1 year old kid can direct a better story than him. He should go back to making cheesy masala movies. CGI is unbelievably unrealistic. Stunts? Peter Did an amazing job (sarcasm). I don't get the hype. Absolutely terrible story. Watch if you are a kid and have 2 hours to waste. Also prepare to cringe a lot at the comedy scenes. On a scale from Santosh pandit to Christopher Nolan . I rate it -1.
