    we did not say we dont like the film infact i must say it was a superhit film and aamir khan is my favorite star but i feel its too much by the way who is the actress katrina?she played not more than 30 mins and who is the real actor sahir or samar? who does katrina love sahir or samar?

  11. siddick bodhe says:

    Film r made for those who pay for to view it,therefore if a film is superhit worldwide,it means that viewers are satisfied with the message that if someone is motivated to fight for the honor of his father who tried his best to Keep his business alive,but he got a bank manager who dcide not to co-operate even before viewing his sample show.Its a question of a pricelest fighting for honor and revenge against Those heartless bank manager.But some are against the star,talking about tempo,bmw bike,borrowers refuse to pay back lôan,but how they will pay if their business is down?

  12. siddick bodhe says:

    Interesting!We often come across non sense film which r non-event,moreover no negative comments,Although Dhoom3 with a worldwide success,some people are not happy,just bcoz they r here to dny those who made the film breaks all records.I dont think around the world there are so many fools who like the film.

    2. Chicago Police Department Thinks Mumbai
    Police has better knowledge of Chicago State
    3. Abhishek Bachan’s Auto Rickshaw Is The
    Ultimate Vehicle Ever.

    anything…almost anything
