“If you are a fan of Priyadarshan's comedies, this one is different but better (that doesn't say much though)! Watch it if no other alternatives.”

Some time back in an interview Priyadarshan said he had exhausted his list of Malayalam films. I think thats why he is now looking at world cinema and Hollywood. After making a mess of Children of Heaven he now massacres Mississippi Burning.
I wonder if the makers have seen LSD. One story in LSD speaks louder about honor killing than this superficial farce in the garb of social cinema. Its a scene to scene and almost dialogue to dialogue copy of Mississippi Burning. The least they could have done was to stay true to the original instead of adding Ajay Devgns love track as a back story or turning him into a full blown action hero from time to time. He does parkour, travels standing on a car in an action sequence and along with Akshaye Khanna does a poor imitation of the classic sequence from Mirch Masala. Akshaye Khanna hams throughout the film. I cracked up every time he delivered a high pitch dialogue. Robin Bhatt has completed a decade in writing and that shows in his screenplay. His writing clearly belongs to the 90s. There is even a stupid reference to Sachin Tendulkar getting out on 99 which I think was unwarranted. The film is a casting blunder because every actor has been a given a role that they have done before in some shade or the other and therefore the film lacks novelty value. Except Reema Sen (last seen in Chal Chala Chal) everyone makes a mess of their characters. This is Bipashas second failed attempt this year to go de glam. The only thing going for the film is the cinematography & the production design.
Final few words: What I got from the film is one dialogue full power 24 hour, na toilet na shower. And this film is better than sitting through his torturous comedies.
