• This movie gets it right in the first half. Despite the trepidation of watching yet another rom-com, grow up and accept yourself kind of movie, Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari pull it off. As the movie gets intense, the conversation becomes filmy, that lightheartedness goes.I’ll go with 2.5 stars for this film, for spinning yet another rom-com, which tries to be different, but doesn’t really succeed. I missed a story in the film.

  • It’s neither a love story, nor a sex comedy. There are plenty of innuendoes and women in bikinis frolicking in foam as newly-divorced R Madhavan (“Sid”) celebrates being single. Song and dance is his chosen way. The women (those one lathered in foam and by the pool) find him irresistible. Perhaps because he even changes the colour of his spectacle frames thrice in the same song (begins with black, goes to blue and red and ends with black). Reality hits though because his evil ex-wife has taken him to the cleaners and he now has to earn his money.

  • Pappu can’t dance saala but he sure can make a film (Shakun Batra’s the latest director to be launched by Karan Johar is Pappu from Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na’s cult song. I’ll go with three and a half stars for this film plus a half for the superb editing, so four out of five.

  • Watch this film because this one is unadulterated Bollywood entertainment. I’ll go with three stars and add half a star for the sheer excitement palpable in those who I watched the film with, first show this morning. Near packed attendance, hearty applause and complete silence in parts. What a bright start, it can only grow from here.

  • Players, the official remake of Hollywood’s heist flick The Italian Job (itself a remake of a British caper film of the same name) is no frame-by-frame copy. There’s enough desi masala to make it an entertaining action flick to kick off 2012 for Bollywood.

  • The King is yet to return. Meanwhile since Hrithik’s cameo is the highpoint of the film and the plot does have a few interesting twists.

  • The film loses out on the great chemistry we saw between him and Anushka in Band Baaja Baaraat, especially towards the end.
