This movie is good when it comes to action-packed scenes loaded with satisfying screenplay and an editing of scenes where emotions could have been excessive, plus cinematography is applaudable. The two main leads managed a lot of action scenes which forms a sort of bonding in between them, and the audience enjoys that as well.
Saif Ali Khan with his usual Mannerly approach towards acting fits into the role of an agent, Kareena supports him well and adds a flavor of glamor and beauty in it, plus the acts by other supporting actors including Ram Kapoor and the decorated villain of Bollywood that is Prem Chopra are also worth watching.
1. Action scenes are nice and thrilling.
2. Jodi of Saif and Kareena whose chemistry would bind you to the seats.
3. Locations are well shot and given time while exploring the movie.
WHAT’S NOT THERE?
1. The stale concept of a spy could have been much better.
2. The story deviates at one point and seems confusing.
3. Copious amount of chemistry looks overdone sometimes.
This movie is for the fans of Saif and Kareena and probably a bit for the movie that could have fared well regarding binding the whole characters with the story. A one-time watch in my opinion.
