I loved this film, it was quite an adventure, and one of the best movies I have seen in recent times. The story has many twists and turns and it is pretty cool to see Shahrukh Khan. It has all the elements to make a great film. The cinematography was beautiful, the music was great, the acting was superb. The stunts were cool. I loved the whole film and I would recommend this to everyone. If you are a Shahrukh Khan fan, see this film, he is in this movie. If you are not a Shahrukh Khan fan, then don't see this film, it is not worth your money.

I love this movie, and it's not for everyone, but it is a movie you can watch, and enjoy. The story revolves around Arjun Rampal (played by Sanjay Dutt), who is a good dancer, and is training to become a fighter. Arjun lives in a little village in UP, and is away from the big city for several months. When he arrives at the village, the local girl, Raoul (played by Deepika Padukone), is the only girl, and the man is taken to her house, and raped by her husband. Arjun is appalled and hides in the house. When the accused is released from jail, Arjun wants to be a wrestler. When he is asked about the victim's friend's pregnancy, Arjun says she is a gymnast, and loves being pregnant. The doctor, however, tells him he will not be able to be a wrestler, but instead he will be a wrestler's fighter. Arjun can't stop thinking about the girl, and in the end he decides to become a wrestler himself, and he will marry Raoul. The movie ends with a message to the Delhi gang-rape victim, who committed suicide, and now their revenge. Arjun does get attacked by the mafia, and they kidnap his son. When the boy finds his father's name, he tries to find out his father's past, and that is how the movie is played out.

One of the most ingenious movies I have ever seen. At the same time, it is a little bit overrated, as some people say. The only thing that is missing is a good script and story-line, which in itself, is very challenging. But that is not important. It is a great movie. Everything that is seen in the movie is real. The jogging scenes, the diving scenes, the motorcycle races, the intense action scenes are all real. It is not a competition between the characters and the director. Each character is special and unique. Sometimes, the movie becomes too boring. There is a scene in which Shahid Kapoor falls from the pool. The water is thrown on his head and makes him fall. The director wanted us to feel sad, when he falls and it is not that strong of a scene. I think, the movie does not go that deep into the film. If you don't like these kinds of films, I recommend that you don't watch the movie, as you will not like it, and that it will not be a movie that you like. I think, you will only get the most out of it if you watch it.

The film is about a woman who is travelling on a train and she goes into a coach with a dirty mind. This film also has a lot of dance scenes but I recommend watching it for its entertainment. Salman Khan does the best in his role of a driver. He's a class actor and I wish he stays on as he is a superstar of tomorrow. I didn't see any role which I would not like to see in Salman Khan. Rani Mukherjee is also good as the woman who finds out the identity of the driver. The story is a bit confusing and some scenes make you feel something and other scene makes you laugh a lot. The songs are good and Salman Khan is good. The scene when he dances with a girl and they are dancing and then they fall in love is a perfect scene. This film is very entertaining and the dances are worth watching. In the end, if you want to watch a film, watch it.

This is a movie that anyone should see, regardless of their political affiliations, and it is almost impossible to find out who to believe. Javed Akhtar is a brilliant writer/director and you can see in every scene the confidence he has as a writer and as a director. The movie was a masterpiece and every scene you could see the passion that he had for his character. And, I have to mention the story line because it really carried the movie, just when I was about to walk out of the theatre and forget about the movie, I heard someone who stated "you should see this movie because it is a great story line". I must say, in the future, they should definitely include story lines for the next 2 movies, because I think it could make a difference in the viewer's belief in such movies. Other than that, the acting was good and the film had a beautiful story to it, but the story itself was that of a man who is willing to do anything to get a job done, and when he finds his chance, he will do anything for it. And, this is what makes the story, because it was more about how he wanted to get the job done. Even the background music was wonderful, and I believe that this movie would have been very good if they had done it with a different soundtrack and background music. Anyway, I highly recommend it to everyone.

A modern day greek stalker, made to be the new pop superstar. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Udit Narayanan,, and Surinder Kaur. This movie will be the stuff of legends in the next couple of years. Mukkabaaz is the story of a young greek boxer who lands a world title fight against a former champion and knocks him out. Due to his fame, he must save his fiancee and brother from the clutches of the corrupt boxing promoter. A great story, directed with a level of realism that is hard to find in today's movies. Anushka Sharma is marvelous as the lady in distress, as is Naseerudin Shah in a cameo role. The two supporting cast are spot on as well. A must watch. It will be a sure hit. This movie, all the ingredients were here. A truly epic masterpiece of cinema.

Many movies are being released every year. Even the ones that don't make a lot of money and are leaving a bad taste in the mouth of the movie goers, do so because they are not quite sure how to react to them. But, this movie is an exception to that rule. I love to laugh, and I love to cry. Some of the funniest moments I have had in a while. I am not sure if I have ever seen a movie that made me think this much. I'm not sure if that's because I am so into the genre that it's hard to enjoy a movie that's only based on action. If you have any kind of taste, you'll love this movie. If you have never been in a hurry to get off your couch to watch something that's actually funny, this movie is worth your time. If you're not a fan of action, then you're probably not going to enjoy this movie very much. If you are, then you'll love it. But if you don't have any interest in the genre, then maybe you shouldn't watch this movie. But it is a classic that I can't get enough of, so maybe I should reconsider.

Now to introduce you guys to the same India that I love. In the west, we have movies like 90210 or 101 Dalmations. Now the movies like Mukkabaaz or Raid which was much better then them (Shah Rukh Khan's G.D) give us the new type of movie. You have a movie with no title. All you have to do is put something into the box. The box is an international cupboard, a box where no matter how much money you put in the box, it will be opened up and you will see it with a big price tag. The box itself is the most important part in the movie and the director has to show it all. But here you have a film with no title and you can put whatever you want into the box. The box has a title (India) with the characters names and it is going to be used in the end of the movie. How many times have you seen such an Indian movie. What is the story? A detective goes on a quest to find a missing child to a far off place. Along the journey he comes across an important story. The movie is a mix of action and comedy and will make you laugh all the time and you can say that the director is not just making the movie. His humour is awesome. The film is the best of it's kind. There is no dancing, no pyrotechnics, no music, just action. As a stand alone movie, there is nothing to complain. But when you put it with the other two great movies like Lagaan, you will notice that something is missing. Now that's the reason why i gave the movie a 9/10. You can say that the other two movies are just there to fill in time between the two great movies. But this movie is just a stand alone movie and its not one of those movies that you can watch in a movie theater and have a good time.

Yes! I'm one of those people who love Shah Rukh Khan and I really enjoyed this movie. The movie's script is really good. There are a lot of flaws in this movie but I'm not complaining about that. This is really a great movie. I think that it is based on a true story. The director has done a really great job in making this a movie that is suitable for everyone. This is not the Shah Rukh Khan's movie but it is definitely not the idolizement. I loved the way this movie is shown. I think that all people who are Salman Khan fans will enjoy this movie.

I have just returned from the film showing at the Macao International Film Festival. What a surprise this was to see this well cast cast of ancillary characters play out the movie in such a way that you genuinely identify with the main characters. To understand that this is the story of your love life; its the story of how your life is affected by something outside your control and how you cope with the aftermath of that, and to see the use of such unconventional storytelling techniques as flashbacks, camera-movements, and rich color cinematography. This movie did it first and best. It will leave you with the same emotion after watching it as you did watching it. I highly recommend you to see this film.

Mukkabaaz is definitely one of the best movies I have seen this year. The story, the performances, the music and the dialogues. It's all awesome. Not a single thing is wrong in this movie. The best part of it all is how its presented in the cinema. Mukkabaaz was made in Rajasthan and the entire state was packed with audience and they did not go for the second level because of the true emotional quality of the movie. The movie is a formula. Rajkumar Hirani was the man that crafted the formula. This movie deserves to be ranked among the top 5 movies of all time. And since I have seen so many good movies from Rajasthan and Mumbai, I cannot understand how Mukkabaaz has not got a higher rating. Even Aap Ki Saaabah (Aamir Khan) which I had not watched till date, got a better rating then Mukkabaaz. Even though I have said that, it would be a great shame if we do not make more movies like Mukkabaaz. Even if the genre of Indian cinema were to change, its remains the same. Mukkabaaz deserves to be ranked among the top 5 movies of all time. And it would be even better if we made more movies like this. It's a must watch for all!

Yes, the story is about a hockey player's journey to the national hockey team. But the movie itself is about many things, all of which are very important to the country's future. If you think about this movie, you'll see that it is also a movie about men, about men who sacrificed and cared about the entire country. It is not just about hockey. It's also about the dignity of the entire country and how important it is to have its own heroes and heroines. It is about caring about the citizens of our country. In fact, this movie was written and directed by Mani Ratnam. After all, he does not do too many romantic movies or comedies. He does this one that is the real action-packed comedy. If you're a cricket fan, you'll get a lot of sense out of the movie. But the movie is also a movie about a wrestler's journey. At the beginning of the movie, the wrestler, played by Sonakshi Sinha, realizes that he is not being noticed by the national team. So, he wants to leave his parents for the country. But, his mother doesn't agree to this. She does not want him to go to the national team. He goes to his parents and, what happens next is a masterstroke of a father and a son. Sonakshi Sinha is a great actress. She does her job beautifully. It is hard to find any one who is more talented. Yet, she does not have any line in the movie, and the reason is because of that. In the middle of the movie, you'll find her in an uncomfortable position. You'll want her to come out of it. She will act in a way that shows that she wants to stand up for herself and the country. Mani Ratnam gave us an excellent drama in the movie. It is a combination of comedy and drama. It's not just about sports, it's also about the dignity of a country and how important it is to be a hero. It's about men and women and men and women. It's a movie about a wrestler's journey and the best way to remember this movie is: Love the Country.

Mukkabaz is an action thriller that is a really good effort from the folks at Disney.It's one of those movies that you will either like or hate,but if you like action thrillers this one is very entertaining and so is the story.If you don't like action thrillers then this one is not for you. I just loved the film and will watch it again and again.To me,there was a very deep message here.This is about a small little man who's life is one big disappointment.He's on a road trip to win a million dollars in a professional boxing match,but he runs into a friend who makes him and his wife really unhappy.The story takes a turn and we get to see some super powers and super fights.The action sequences are super cool and a great job was done by the entire team.The only problem I had with the film was the story.It wasn't that great and a lot of the scenes that were supposed to be action sequences,there were some of those that were missing.If you liked this film and liked other martial arts films,there are tons of films that are based on the same type of style.Just because you don't like one,don't be put off by the other,and you'll be very happy with these and many other films that are similar.I'd give it a 9.5/10.8/10

A MEMENTO MEMORIAL. The makers of MEMENTO took one of the more beloved movies of the 90's, as the jumping off point for their vision of a film that doesn't quite reach the heights of the original. However, the film is an epic, though over the top and over the top. The movie was made for a very specific audience. The one that can live for any film and enjoy them all. We have Madhavan, a man that can't accept the life he's been living, so he chooses to quit his life. Madhavan chooses a job in an oil field. His life is one of hard work and dying of boredom. He travels the world to chase his dream. He's addicted to the game that's being played there. He's a technician for the game, he wears the same clothes and has the same habits. The film is different than the original. The original film was fast paced, moving at a steady pace. The film in my opinion was slow and slow to take it's place. The film makes a lot of effort to bring you to a place where you can see and feel what is going on, the film has a slow pace and is not at all "thrill-a-minute". It's slower than the original film. The film tries to tell a story of hope. This film is much more difficult to watch than the original, it takes a lot of courage to watch it and feel the frustration of what the characters are feeling. The film is slow and doesn't have the thrill-a-minute. This is the main reason why I'm giving this film a 9.8. The film was made in an effort to tell the story of Hope and how it is created. The characters have had a hard time of feeling the hope and desire to live. The makers wanted to show the characters and show us what the characters were feeling, rather than tell a story. The film didn't have the thrill-a-minute. This film has a slow pace, not fast paced. The film makes a great effort to convey the experience of being alive and the way it's felt. This film is a tale of Hope. A film that you can watch and feel the struggle of being alive. This film is about dreams, people's dreams, and the freedom that we have in a lifetime.

First off I must admit that I am a Shahrukh Khan fan. But this movie is a different level of hero. At the beginning of the movie, Shahrukh Khan showed his inner-struggle as a 'Bhishma' with huge amounts of money and power, he's a superhero with a dark secret in his past. After all he was more of a 'Bhishma' than a hero as he betrayed his friends. Then he took charge of a village in the city and became a villain in a new 'hit-man' style. The movie makes you wonder why Shahrukh Khan has a villain-role in a 'hero' movie. From the first scene of the movie, we see Shahrukh Khan working hard with no care for his family. I really sympathize with his actions during the movie, because you feel it's so unfair for his family and wife. The movie is so entertaining, Shahrukh Khan always looked like a villain in this movie. He was being arrogant and being a 'Bhishma' at the same time. The way he fought was very awesome. The dialogues were very intense, the way Shahrukh Khan acted was fantastic, the ending of the movie was great, the last line is very strong and also is a part of the movie. The movie was about people and families and how they have problems and how they can solve those problems through cooperation. I think that this is an amazing movie, and I want to see it again.

I was so excited to see this film but it is a very original movie that makes you laugh at every part and it is very well done. I think people will love it. It is one of the best movies in the year and I have seen a lot of bad films. It is like the best movie in the year so far. There are so many funny parts, it is like a very emotional film. My favorite part is when Surya is singing. People are really upset because they want to see him. The boy shes with was the best character in the movie. He was my favorite character and I hope they will make more movies like this one. I have seen other movies like this one but they are not so good. The director made this movie really unique and entertaining. I hope he will make more movies like this one. It is really good!

The biggest problem that can be caused by watching films like this is that you need to give it an extra credit, because at the end of the day, there is a point. You can't just say that the director was good and the film wasn't. So, if you can, you can give it an extra point. The point is that the characterizations are done well. Shahrukh Khan is a very serious actor and he doesn't have the charisma, but you can't blame him for trying. The supporting cast is done well, too. Fakir is wonderful and puts the perfect humour to this character. The supporting cast, though, have done an amazing job in portraying the same character. Aamir Khan has done a wonderful job in a character that is very different than the other ones. Sanjay Dutt is perfect in his role as the hard-nosed corporate executive, and Ashwani Phifer is superb in a very small role. The direction of the film is great and the cinematography is great. The music in the film is great and the script and editing are very good. The acting is good and Shah Rukh Khan is the one who keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. The story is very good and the script is great. As far as the last 30 minutes of the film goes, the ending is excellent and it is worth watching just for the last 30 minutes. Overall, this is a film that should not be missed. It is fantastic.

The movie is a new Indian film with some elements of the western genre. It also introduces a genre which has been lacking in Indian cinema for quite sometime. The film is about an abusive father of a girl who's marriage is annulled by her father for being infertile. He also refuses to allow her to have an abortion. He also refuses to allow her to learn about contraception. The father's younger brother also dies due to his refusal to let her go to school or to continue her education. The girl has to go to live with her father's elder sister. At the same time, the sister finds a job in a local construction site. The father uses this opportunity to go back home and pick up his younger brother. The brother dies. His father comes to visit the girl and the sister and family decide to visit his younger brother's grave. The father's younger brother had died for the same reason as his father. But he also had to have an abortion. There is a twist in the story when he realizes the difference between the attitude of the family and the attitude of the sister and her friends. But, it is also a movie where things don't always go smoothly. The movie has some twists in the story and even a twist in the movie itself. The movie is refreshingly different from the typical Indian movies. The movies is also engaging and interesting, so that you would not find it boring. The acting is good, especially by Ashutosh Rana, who also won the Oscar for best actor in 2002. He also won the best actor award at the age of 15. I would recommend this movie to people who are not too worried about the usual hero movies.

I saw this film with my sister and brother-in-law and they loved it. My wife and I both enjoyed it, and it held up well when I left the theatre. There were many character names that we had never heard of, and I'm glad we did not know these names when we went to see this movie. There were some funny lines and situations, but I would like to add that there were many good points about this movie. The director (and the writers) were excellent in bringing the story to life. The direction was a very good balance between acting and plot development. Some of the actors in the film were quite impressive, especially the man playing Ajay's brother. Many of the situations in the film were very dramatic and realistic, and in the very few places where the film slowed down or tried to be too "hip" (very few, actually), it was done in a very professional way. I was also very happy with the script and dialogue. I thought it was very entertaining, and you got the feeling that the writers and directors wanted to do the story justice, not just "let it all hang out" so as to please everyone, but they did it. The characters of Ajay and the mother of the injured husband were very well done and also acted very well. I also enjoyed the fact that the movie had a few good surprises. I loved the idea of Ajay being so "confused" about the concept of "just saving your girlfriend" and then being able to just throw the car away, even though that was what she was doing to him. I thought the fact that he used his car was very funny, and he was able to take his wife's stuff and make some money without having to do any of the work himself. The idea of Ajay running with a friend's car, and all the trouble he had to go through to get it was very interesting. Overall, I thought the movie was very entertaining, and I think that if you have an open mind, and a good sense of humour, you will enjoy this movie very much.
