The best movie of Arjun Rampal after Rock On !
11 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Arjun Rampal and he impressed me a lot in this movie. The best Arjun Rampal movie i have watched after Rock On ! Some of the people here are giving negative comments saying the movie was slow, the acting was poor and all because they have never seen Arjun playing negative role like this . First of all how can you call this a slow movie ? you will only find this movie slow if you are only used to fast action movies with lots of explosion,fights and all.. and those who commented saying Arjun Rampal's acting was bad, you need to give your head a wobble, he is playing as Arun Gawli and he tried 100% to act natural like him.

For me Daddy is the best movie for 2017
