    Let's be honest, if this was made in the US or the UK, people would say it's cheap sentiment and cheese. It's a nice little flick but it's not a masterpiece by any definition of the word. 5 years 6 months ago

    I loathe the majority of the stupid, foolish, adult characters in this film, who can't even be bothered to run their problem child by a doctor before berating and shaming him - and why is it that, as per stereotype, only a magical hero teacher can do the job of opening their eyes? The kid should have gone all 'Udaan' on his opponents and socked them in the mouth. The second half is somewhat better (the final cross-generational contest is somewhat enjoyable) but still has a smell of 'Simple Jack' about it, complete with 'angelic' soundtrack at one point, in fact few of the songs in the soundtrack work all that well. The film's sickly sweet message might carry better with Indian audiences, but for those less inclined to believe that every child is sacred, this will probably come off more as saccarine and desperately overlong. 4 years 3 months ago
