    I thought it was a very good movie . And this is not the first movie of Aamir Khan . He is a real artist in what he does and his career is full of examples. For instance his recent movie Dangal was a real master piece . Why the short memory, why the hate .

    Rajiv Masand is nothing but a jack a**. How can you rate this movie 3star. When this movie is tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives for us. And one who f***ed porkies by doing sergical Strick.

    I watch the movie, nice and entertaining movie and was disappointed with Critic's who have under-rated the movie and very partial on reviews. It is more or less same with other movies of similar budget and much better than Ravneer's movies which are over exaggerated and over acting.

    The story is not so good, but I really enjoyed watching amit ji and aamir Khan together. Their acting and action of the movie is ultimate unlike the story of the movie.

    The flop of this movie was because of Amir Khan. He got involved in dictating the director ,Vijay acharya, by the permission of aditya Chopra. He screwed up the director vision of the movie. He was supposed to be only the actor and no involvement with the director. His arrogance got involved and destroy the movie completely. Aditya took this guy Amir work as a tool to boost his film but little did he know that any movie directed by rajkumar hirrani will make anybody a star. Amir Khan is no director and he should only get involved in that kind of work when movies r produced by him.

    Most of the people say it is a bad movie because most of them are saying it is a bad movie. Pathetic!

    Obviously we didn't have any expectations from Vijay Krishna Acharya because of his limited range but what made Aamir sir and AB sir sign TOH??
    And even after realizing the potential of the movie, why do such seasoned actors in such cases keep on praising the film till the release date ? Just to fool the public ? It's unbelievable !!

    The fact that Rajeev Masand can hardly move from his couch, while criticizing & mocking hard working people is the biggest irony. Movies are bad , but should be criticized by the people who could prove their talent too..
