RATINGS 1 out of 10

Stat. Warning… at your own risk

Despite Aamir Khan’s earnestness and looming presence in almost every scene, this 300 crore movie also starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif is a letdown. Every thing about the movie is so predictable as if the story writing session must have taken 30 minutes to write. The 1st half goes wondering with expectations of watching a magnum opus. But alas! THUD! Its formula -ic with 2 sparks here and there, but nothing that warrants its budget or hype. In the 2nd half you can doze off in a relaxed seat in the Plex. The chemistry between Aamir and Amitabh could have made some value for money moments. But the director thought it otherwise. Mega star Amitabh’s first entry scene did draw a few taali’s but it is Katrina with 2 scenes and 2 songs who does justice to her #object of desire purpose. Watch the movie if you need a good sleep in the push back seat after a hectic DIWALI. Mera toh Diwala ho gaya.
