Review: Some Bollywood movies are meant for a certain category of people who likes Masala Dialogues, Actress’s Thumke and indigestible action sequence. If you like typical Bollywood melodrama, Gym hit bodies of actress & actor to be wowed over and unrelatable action sequences, then it’s a “Super Friday” for you. Else, wait for your TV channel to telecast it one day in future. A big appreciation for Tiger Shroff’s chiseled physique. This man looks like a Greek god, another Bollywood actor after Hrithik Roshan. This factor gets accentuated for people like us who can’t think of attaining such an extraordinary stature until next life. However, his portrayal as modern-day Dhai Kilo Ka Haath in Rambo like Avatar trying to take over an army of goons single-handedly is totally typical Desi Masala Movie type. Remaining star cast cannot be complemented either, be it Disha Patani, Manoj Bajpayee, Prateek Babbar or Randeep Hooda(LSD in the movie). Equally disappointing is choreography by Saroj Khan with such poor reproduction of iconic Madhuri Dixit OST “Ek do teen…”.
