(us) wrote: This is actually a well-made movie that looks into the messed up education system in the sub-continent ...! The pluses: - Big B - no one could pull off such a role with such charm and perfection!! - Perfect casting ... from the leads to supporting cast, they all hold the fort in their role!! The flaws: - The first 30minutes were not needed at all. They are just boring, pointless and annoying !! - The Saif-Deepika romance, another story angle that was not needed in the story at all ... Overall - not a cinema watch ... but good one to watch at home on DVD with a remote =D

It's quite a strange, yet charming little film. The plot is well..kinda stupid..but funny. :) I can't say much for the acting. (Yikes!) Well, except for Robert Downey Jr. He was totally cute when he was younger. Wow. Overall, it's a fun little romantic comedy that has a different little twist to it. It totally makes you think about the whole process of reincarnation on a whole different level.
