  1. New wave Bollywood at its best, a Hindi-language film from a Mumbai studio that shows the influence of American and foreign films.
  2. 70
    It weaves its familiar story with some fresh textures and even manages to invest the conflict on the field with a resonance that transcends the tick-tock turnover of the numerals on the scoreboard.

    Shaky handheld lensing, terrific cutting and uplifting music build to a grandstand finish in which the main characters are bound tightly into the physical drama. It ain't subtle, but it packs a punch at a simple emotional level.
  4. 63
    While it doesn't miss a cliche, it also invests every one with vigorous conviction.

    Great movie. Well made. Shahrukh's best performance after his great turn in Swades. The film is made with great flair, style and talent.

    Although not without flaws, it is a brilliant movie. Captivating and immersing from the start. Sha Rukh Khan redefines himself as Kabir Khan. A film not to be missed. Full Review »
