Now lets talk about the most anticipated movie of year. Is it good? Yes. Did it disappoint? Not really. A must watch? Yes. Will it be nominated for Best movie Filmfare? Chances are slim. This movie has everything. A good story. Great comedy. Action sequences are realistic to a good extent. Great acting. But with movies like BMB, D Day and Special 26 chances are that this might not make it in top 5 movies of year. We'll see. SRK might get his another nomination for best actor and so can Deepika.
