    Crime drama from the 80s, songs like they are from the 90s, slickness and style from the 00s. And story like a thriller should be written.

    Kudos to writing that got me hooked to wrestling for the last hour or so. This for a person who gets easily bored in wrestling films, let alone the sport itself.

    The biggest put-off is that grown-ups behave like juveniles when in love. They behave as if they've never heard of age-old problems like toilet seats and wet towels. Makes you wonder if the writers have experienced real life, real relationships – those outside the movie world.

    Philosophizes a little too much with little insight. And I wonder where we have seen the story earlier? Hmmmm...

    As inane as an action film can get. It's fight to have a relevant story is futile because it is nothing more than the usual sequences of chase sequences.

    What's done well is done pretty neatly, what's not is pretty average, even mediocre. And yet, the entire set-up kind-a, sort-a works.

    Pretends to be intense. Pretends to be romantic. Pretends to be enigmatic. Pretends to be Shakespearean – how can it be without the complexity or the tragedy.

  • M.S. Dhoni

    The film is more a story of middle-class India than about the most successful Indian cricket captain. And that's its charm.

    Watchable for the energy that visuals can add to the upbeat, festive music. Else, very passable.

    You forget you are watching a film for a lot of the 2+ hours. Doesn't wrench your heart or gut, but works on the mind. Hopefully.

  • Freaky Ali

    As plain and dry a sports underdog film as can be. Having you root for the actor, not the character, doesn't bode well for a film.

  • Baar Baar Dekho

    A long-winded way of saying something quite simple, really. The buildup and guesswork all seem like they want to lead you up to something very profound, but nada.

  • A Flying Jatt

    A preachy school play that could have meant more. A film that will get “well-intended, heart in the right place” nominations.

    The least Mohenjo Daro could have done is awe you with its scale. Well, It doesn't. Save a few action pieces the film has nothing to enamor you.

    ...will make you uncomfortable with its audacity. The story would've had an even better grip if the film were finer in other aspects.

  • Dishoom

    A thriller that cannot be bogged down by details. An action film that cannot be bothered to even attempt innovative moves.

    ...is one movie repeated twice – once before the interval and once after. Both are equally predictable and melodramatic.
