    Trailer looks awesome Kathy! Alas, sometimes when you’ve seen the trailer you’ve seen all the best bits, but hopefully this isn’t the case with this one. I usually like Akshay Kumar so reckon I’ll like this. Thanks for the heads-up. If I get to the cinema this weekend I’ll let you know what I thought.

    Lol! After reading your review I figured it might be best to do something else instead. I ended up watching ‘Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year’ on Spuul instead. Shame though, as it has been a while since there have been any really great Hindi films on at our local cinema. I think the last one was Badlapur, but I might be wrong. Here’s hoping there’ll be something soon as I’m missing my big-screen fix Kathy.

      You’re in luck, Paul. The summer season is finally underway, so there should many more films coming to theaters during the next few months. Bombay Velvet (May 15) and Dil Dhadakne Do (June 5) both look promising. Since the UK historically opens more Bollywood titles in theaters than the US does, you’ll probably have even more options than just the films on this list:
