Kurbaan - a big let down

Its 3.15* AM(at the time of writing this) and I’m sleepy like hell. Still a few quick words on the movie. I normally write on a muvi either when its too good or too bad. This tym unfortunately for the muvi, its thumbs down. A big disappointment. Karan Jauhar can only write peppy romantic flicks. And rensil d'silva, the director, though he tried his best to make this one look cool and authentic, the muvi is just too artificial. I believe a big reason for muvi’s failure was that it came after New York. People have already seen enough of this USA+Islam thing on screen. I wonder what would be the fate of My name is khan, but I personally don’t have much expectations frm MNIK.
Coming back to Kurbaan, only gud thing in d muvi was kirron kher and its music. Vivek oberoi tries too hard to sound American but it just doesn’t wrk. Kareena has nothing left to do except crying in d second half. Saif was at his typical self, wowww..oye ye kya hai…wowww. And what the hell was with that song Rasiya. Producers had to just put in some steamy scenes between Saif n Kareena, so they used an age old formula of stealing important details where heroin pretends and seduces the hero. Disappointing, cinema has changed Mr. Johar, wake up now. Direction, screenplay, dialogues, execution were a big let down. A predictatble muvi throughout. I am still amazed how did it manage to get gud comments frm muvi critics. Are they biased over Karan Jauhar muvies or smthing?

If u hv seen the muvi, I pity u. If u hvnt, b8r stay away frm this one.

yeah, a big let down.. saw it in college. But I expect MNIK to be good, given the promos are afresh and bollywood's been missing SRK-Kajol chemistry since long :D
