When you're living in the fast lane, there's no time for making sense
A movie like this could only be made by the Yashraj Studio. But if you're not expecting stark realism then its okay, because on the flip-side only Yashraj could pull off a movie like this, with their slick production values and the star power to make it work. Here, the mix of escapism and relatable characters is just right.
Saif Ali Khan demonstrates good versatility and Rani Mukherjee lends real grace to her more straightforward role. But the real star is the little girl, who upstages both in all her scenes. An amazingly good casting, she is reminiscent of the Award-Winning young Anna Paquin and hopefully she has a bright future ahead of her.
The pacing is very good. Just when it looks like things are about to get too clichéd or boring, it picks up again. The songs meld well into the story and the music is entertaining and upbeat.
Some people are trying to burn it at the stake calling a rip-off of Talladega Nights. It clearly started as such. But I think this is the superior and more enjoyable movie. I'm a Will Ferrell fan but I would recommend TRRP over TN. Consider it a case of fixing what was broke.
