I went to the movie hall dreading the experience after reading the reviews. Advance tickets seemed a bad idea this time.
Guess what... the movie isn't half as bad as what is being mentioned. The movie might be far from perfect but it's an absolute entertainer. Also it's a visual spectacle at a grand scale; a first for Hindi Cinema.
I didn't feel bored throughout the length of the movie except the two songs of Katrina.
Infact this movie has one of the best roles of Amitabh. And Sana has some of the best action sequences in the movie.
Overall a fun film. Definitely worth a watch.
