Because of its timing and specifically targeted audience, it is bound to be a superhit.
Despite the rampant use of computer graphics, some portions of the film look similar (same to same; no better) to the once popular Doordarshan serial Shaktiman.
Latexed Kangana does justice to her role as a plastic n emotionless lass. Priyanka Chopra with several kgs down looks better n dances effortlessly in songs. Now a word or two about Krrish Hritik Roshan. Hritik looks smart with his unbelievable chiselled body, dances well but that’s it.
Someone may say comparisons r odious yet I m constrained to draw one. DD’s Shaktiman had that colloquial ‘wajan’ which in Sharabi film, Munshiji’s shayari (Om Prakash) had n Amitabh’s didn’t.
However, for many who are reading this might wonder ‘do they have a choice’? If you are blessed (sic) with bhaiyyas/didis then let them accompany the kiddos, otherwise take a long breathe (like I had taken in anticipation) n just go… … Painful inevitabilities should be enjoyed.
