• If there is one reason why it is a tad bit easier to be kinder to an Expendables film, than to, say, Kick or Jai Ho, it is the technical wizardry at their disposal. All of the most far-fetched action scenes merge live-action and CG beautifully, making it easier to suspend one’s disbelief. Real-looking ludicrousness is, after all, quite easier to buy than tacky-looking ludicrousness.

  • In an attempt to draw at least something positive from the film, one can say that it least it never drops its pace and might even keep you interested in its silliness at all times – you wonder how much harder will the makers of the film try. Hopefully, Samrat & Co will die a death with the film, and future filmmakers will think long and hard before creating such lightweight caricatures of characters who have enthralled so many generations.

  • Revolver Rani makes you feel it had the potential to be an enjoyable, out-of-the-box film. But, I doubt, with that second half there was any possible redemption.

  • As the film drags on and on until you’ve had enough, you almost feel thankful to see the end credits. You also wonder why this thought hasn’t yet crossed Subhash Ghai’s mind: “Even Sachin Tendulkar has retired. What am I still doing?”

  • When you walk out of 2 States, then, one isn’t likely to be absolutely gushing about it, nor will one be particularly annoyed by it. It just gives you what it promises – tolerable enough fun for just as long as it lasts.

  • You forsake logic and cinematic craft in favour of quick thrills, which the film has plenty of. You’ll either be too busy trying to guess who Neeson is chasing, or you may sit back with the realisation that no matter what, Liam Neeson is having more fun than you are.
