I am probably one of the few people on this planet who saw this film in a movie theater. It bombed at the box office, mostly because the movie was given zero promotion from the studio. Still, as a fan of Bollywood movies, I really enjoyed it.
This movie is in English, making it a good choice for anyone looking to check out Bollywood for the first time. It follows the classic Bollywood love story formula, which a lot of people have ridiculed it for. Yes, it is predictable. But it is still done well. Personally, I prefer "predictable and done well" over a lot of Hollywood movies that have absurd swerves and surprises that don't make sense.
Anyway, the film has Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and American actress Ali Larter from the TV show "Heroes". The musical numbers are done pretty well as is the dancing. Overall, the movie is a lot of fun. The two of them make a nice couple, and I actually bought the love story. I highly recommend the film.
