Verdict – 1/5

Pros –

 

1) “Jag Ghoomeya” song

 
Cons –
1) Average bollywood potboiler. It’s not Chak De! India.
2) “Rocky” & “Cinderella Man” meets “Never Back Down”.
3) Lack of good supporting cast.Now this seems to be a serious issue with bollywood these days.Average actors playing major characters roles and failing hard.
4) Though it’s a sports film,romance is a major angle but it is not at all convincing & passionate as it is supposed to be (like Ghazni). No chemistry between Salman & Anushka
5) If you have seen the trailer, nothing else to watch.
