Martin D'Souza's Film Reviews
…inspite of its obvious flaws, it’s still worth a watch. The quiz round towards the end is quite entertaining with his suspense. The scenes where Vidya teaches with care and concern in school and her neighbourhood are enlightening. Juhi Chawla as her solid friend is endearing. And although the scenes where the ex-students and students in general come to the help of Vidya when she is in hospital appear over-the-top, it still manages to strike a chord in you.
Certainly worth a watch: especially for Gen-X.
At the start of the film you are assured the ingredients are just right, but as the movie progresses, you realize that Akshay Akkineni has crossed the line when it comes to stretching a horror sequence – it goes from being spooky to horrific to a joke. There’s too much of mixed toppings of pepperoni, mushrooms and onions. In the end, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
This is a movie on terrorist and terrorism. Supposedly, a soft take. A comedy of sorts. There’s Omama, and Al Baquaida. There are also humorous references to airplanes and its use in terror attacks. All very good. But the line of humour is so amateurish that it borders on the absurd.
