Star Performance

Ranbir Kapoor has just lived in the character. He is very dedicated and just followed the mannerisms of Sanjay Dutt. Although Manisha Koirala has a brief role, she did a good job. Similarly, Paresh Rawal has played his part, excellently.


Rajkumar Hirani has scripted all the characters well and his casting is also excellent. All the stars fit in the role perfectly. Manisha, Paresh and Ranbir scenes are emotional and those scenes are impressive too. But, the director didn’t speak about Sanjay's previous marriages and his daughter Trishala Dutt. He has just spoken about his present wife, Manyata and in this place, the audiences feel, odd. Songs and the BGM are fantastic. The cinematography and the editing are also fine.

What’s There?

  • Performance of the stars is appreciable
  • Neat screenplay and execution
  • The songs and the BGM are good

What’s Not There?

  • Some of his past including the previous marriages and his daughter are just hidden


With the excellent screenplay, execution, performance and the music, the film impresses everyone. Although it has a few minor flaws, it is definitely a watch worthy film! Watch the film and you will surely say that the film is worth the money spent!
