Review: It has an edge of humor that reminds me of the poster for The Naked Gun, which is probably not unintentional. If the background weren’t so dull (the non-Hollywood sign part), it might have been a touch more effective.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: The trailer is a bit sporadic as many films from India tend to be, but this one doesn’t try very hard to find the narrative thread to see it to the audience. There’s a lot of raised voices and gesticulating, which makes it seem far too inauthentic to be fun.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
