No No. I mean that dialogues between Ben Kinsley and AB are actually dubbed in Hindi. Looks like they were actually talking in English. Maybe a different version for the international audience.

Karthik Calling Karthik -

Just got back after seeing the movie and have a headache.

Will not get into the details. Its a bit spooky in the second half. First half is as stupid as it can get. What was Farhan thinking when he did this ??

2 songs are good and that is it. The second half is better than the first half.

Moral of the Film - Do not buy Chinese Landline Phones !

Rating - 2/5 ( Only because of the spooky scenes which were well shown )

Kartik Calling Kartik

The promos were promising and the movie lives up to the hype for ALMOST the running length.

Farhan Akhtar has grown as an actor with every movie and this is his best performance till date. Watch him change from a nervous wreck into a super uber cool dude back to the insecure guy. Deepika is ...how do I put this...yucky would be the closest. She is thin and looks good in the costumes till you see her face.

Music is very good though I wish they had at least one song in full in the movie. There are spooky bits in the 2nd half which is better than the 1st half but as usual the climax weakens the effect.

Verdict - 3/5
- It is a one time watch.

Went into halls after long for MNIK. The first part was lovely. The second part was so long and painful my head hurt.

Except the unbelievable work by Shahrukh and Kajol. It needed a real story - and some real journey (excuse the Reebok and Samsonite ads)

Watched KCK in the evening today.

I would agree with @vkochar and rate it at 2/5. First half is totally passe! Second half is little better.

I just finished watching it. I liked the movie. To each his own rating. Hence I ain't talking about ratings.

Nothing new, but I have to share this. Came across Aitraaz while channel surfing & I must say the way Akshay Kumar and Kareena fall in love and get married is beyond me!
In fact Bollywood & it's so called superstars are beyond me!

These awards are nothing but cosmetic in nature. They make good fireplace decorations.

Don't tell me it is running uninterrupted since its release in Maratha Mandir I would be interested to know whether they are able to cover their costs.
