Watched the trailer on the big screen yesterday (it was attached to dangal). Looked quite good. Hope the story line is interesting. People have generally liked the trailer and a good story would propel it to be a big hit.
I thought when this film was announced it would be something more weighty more serious considering it was presented as a semi autobiography and Rahul Dholakia being the director was a plus, sadly i don't see any of those things back...
It is that it has SRK otherwise i would have skipped this one, by the look of it this one could have easily been one of those Ajay/Akshay gangster masala flicks
That's your preference & it not being in that mould doesn't make it a lesser film. There's been a number of films with masala elements in the backdrop that were very good films. Rahul Dholakia said from the start it would deal with serious issues in an entertaining manner.
^ I don't agree. As one of the few in this board who is a strong supporter of so called masala films, I find the promo disappointing because it does neither what it promised to in the teaser or what any of the folks part of this film - SRK, Excel and Dholakia - are comfortable with or understand well for that matter
