I am going to make this a quick post!! I dont think it deserved a 5 star rating!!!! A good movie but not 5 star.. a refreshing movie considering the movie draught we have been in!!!!
Well, i agree the expectations were sky high.. an ensemble cast.. prakash jha.. quite interesting trailers...
But i dont think it lived upto it.. maybe i am feeling this more because i read the review first.. and i was quite thrilled to see the 5 stars.. i think dev d was the last movie to get one and i had loved it!!! So my hopes were up.. high up in the clouds.. and i really like ranbir and ajay devgun.
I was curious, interested.. well fed by the hype around it and the 5 stars of course!!!
Where was the miss you ask.. it should have been more diabolical.. people should have been hatching more plans... there should have been more politics.. shrewd politics i.e.
It was there.. but not quite there.. all the intelligent plotting was done by one party... ranbir obviously..
Ajay Devgun was seriously under utilised... he is so powerful in such roles.. it started on a promising note.. but somewhere.. i wish he had more to do!!!
At times the dialogues were funny (they were not meant to be).. but evoked laughs.. a lady saying tum mere jeshth putra ho.. since when do we use such language? Or do we in the northern belt? Even then i thought it didnt fit in.. sounded like ramayan/mahabharat talk!!!
And Katrina Kaif.. should have had more screen time as the person in politics!!!! She would have been quite cool!!! And no, the movie is not the Gandhi family saga ...though she essayed the leader's role really well!! And when is running up the stairs waving to people in one scene, she really reminds you of sonia gandhi! Quite cool i thought.
But here i must say one thing... its not that the movie is not good.. it is good.. but definitely not a 5 star movie!!! It was quite racy... it doesnt allow you to blink...its quick.. i thought they set the pace really well... one thing leads into the other quickly.. there is no agonising wait !!!!!
Ranbir Kapoor was smashing.. I liked Katrina too.. Nana patekar was awesome.. subtle and awesome.. i liked ajay devgun too!!!
Good movie.. definitely worth a watch!!!!!!!!! A must see i will say.
