I was really looking forward to this film for 3 main reasons: Vishal Bhardwaj's next after Omkara,
Shahid Kapur in a double role, Priyanka Chopra under Vishal's direction. While the cast did a tremendous job portraying the characters as was probably written, and Vishal gets ample credit for tackling a relatively untouched genre in Bollywood films, the script needed a lot more editing to be palatable to the audience. The story was dragging, and was very hard to follow. It was not a bad film, just not one I'd pay $12.50 to watch. Wait for the DVD.
I finally saw this movie tonite, and really enjoyed it. The first half had plenty of cliches that
had me rolling my eyes, but the second half was pretty awesome! Special appearance by Kunal Kapoor was a wonderful surprise. Minnisha and Bipasha were great in the 2nd half (not so much in the first), Deepika's acting is getting better with each movie. And Ranbir was awesome, he carried the whole movie, and made his character believable. Must-watch meaningful film, with a great message throughout. Very easy to relate to, as well. :)
With enough twists and turns to keep you guessing throughout the film, the plot is the true star of
this movie. Breaking away from routine song-and-dance routines, this Abbas-Mustan thriller keeps you on the edge of your seats throughout the movie. In addition to the above average performances by the whole cast, but especially Saif, Akshaye, and Bipasha, the sets and backdrop of horse racing in Durban and Capetown are a visual treat. This movie is definitely worth a watch in the theater!
