Energetic Homage to Bollywood - With Good Songs

Not nearly as bad as thin-skinned PC critics, etc, etc, have made out. This Hollywood homage to Bollywood features good performances and a bright, meaningful, music and song score by Rajib Karmakar. Good-looking cinematography and locations make this a different and entertaining musical treat – with young and old stars doing very well together.
