Walt Disney Pictures’ first collaboration with Yash Raj Films fails to serve its intended audience: kids. The film follows the homeless Romeo (voiced by Saif Ali Khan) as he falls in love with lounge singer Laila (voiced by Kareena Kapoor) and runs afoul of a flatulent mafia boss. An abundance of references to other Bollywood films keeps Roadside Romeo from being universally accessible. And if the film didn’t star animated dogs, you’d never know that it is intended for kids, especially since the female dogs have disturbing hourglass figures.

No rating (animated violence); 93 minutes
