Cast says:Clive Owen, Monica Bellucci, Paul Giammati .
And the trailer gets U zapped.
But, NEVER fall for this stupid american movie called 'Shoot 'em up'.
Ever imagined a "Rajnikanth movie" made by hollywood. This would beat ur best(worst) imagination.
I wasted my sunday! :(

I would recommend this movie to my worst enemies only.

Great viewing for the whole family. I would recommend a watch.
a very good movie, for the first time shahid has really shown his acting prowess. kareena is good through out but the second half was predictably boring. could have been made crisp with some more kareenanomics.

but i liked it. would rate 4/5

A Mighty Heart - Angelina Jolie in a completely different avatar. Based on the true events of the kidnapping and subsequent murder of the journalist, Daniel Pearl. Don't miss this.

well sad part is no hare rama song
Well nice way to mix comedy and horror. watch it and then all fans who watched Laga will keep cribbin that they wasted time,
Well there are couple of vintage beauties.
There is a CHRYSLER
Sorry dont remember the model name though
Watched Bhool Bholaiya. Good time pass. Acceptable one time watch and that guy Akshay is improving with every movie. Thought the movie did not exploit the potential of either Paresh Rawal or the tiny Yadav fella. Strange story line but then what the heck you can laugh intermittently and that is all that matters to me when I watch a movie

Also watch Dhol and Dhamaal (yeah I know I am late on both) again good time passes.

Sawariya is a big dissapointment, no story at all, the movie drags on and on. I felt like leaving the hall mid way. Full of songs. Songs come almost every 10 mins.

Salmans character doesnot suit him. The new commers are good though.

Didnot expect such a bad movie from SLB atleast. Big hype, i heard they spent 35crores on adverts.

Oh the music director gained 35kgs in making the music for the movie, it took him 2 years, i guess he gained weight uselessly.

Rating - 1/5

Watch it to see the new commers who do impress.

It would have been better if the movie was named Black 2 or so, there was absolutely no sunlight in the whole movie & in between irritating sounds creep in which seems to be copied from a hollywood action hero flick.

Om shanti om was a little too overhyped.Farah has done everthing possible to make a lot of money this diwali IMO.It doesn't drag on and on.

I don't understand hindi so forgive the lame review.

Worth a watch ,, Deepika is hot!

Om Shanti Om: Frankly, little disappointed. It has everything that you would expect from a "Bollywood" movie. But, some of the scenes, that should have been impacting, do not even touch your brain. Acting was great. Shahrukh is good and hasnt overacted, especially in he 70s first part. Deepika looks beautiful. The song featuring 31 stars from Bollywood is nice. Supernatural movies are believable but this wasnt (for me), because of its so called twisty end. Thats the problem though, the movie ends in a jiffy.

Rating...3/5
