    Looks like the movie is keeping in the typical Bollywood songs and dancing? I can't imagine it would run that long otherwise.

    Just watched the whole trailer (can't believe I made it) and it looks really stupid. Wasn't even that funny from what the trailer showed.

    so my friend and went to see it last night and we both really enjoyed the film.

    if you like the kung-fu comedies of stephen chow you will probably like this one too. of course some of the jokes and humor to the film are better served if you are indian, but then again it is a hindi movie. of course there are some things that are down right silly but those add to the charm of the movie.

    the story becomes a bit tad predictable at the end (but then again it is a hindi movie) but it was very entertaining.

    of course it wont be everyone's cup of tea if people are going to criticize some of the cornier features of the film.


    oh and my friend (who isn't indian) afterwards when we left said "am I going actually buy an indian movie now?" he really liked it as well.

    I would say a 7.5/10 I would recommend it if you liked kung-fu hustle, shaolin soccer....but it is a 2.5 hour movie so be careful of drinking a large soda.
