An excellent chance wasted.....
19 October 2017 | by sniffadawgSee all my reviews

I'm a decent fan of Arjun a, I reckon he's the most good looking man in Bolly wood. He did an excellent job in rock on and Rajneeti, but in daddy he has let me down a bit. The direction was poor and intensity was missing and top of all, the editing made this movie so confusing that everything got mixed up. I'm giving 5only for Arjun not for the movie. I'm sure he will come up with some more good ideas as this chance was wasted as we were dying to get an action gangster flick for a long time, but this one went down the drain.
