A Bollywood family saga with measured melodrama and the right amount of naach-gaana

The jokes get too sidey and the jest is short-lived

Kangana Ranaut's performance is outstanding

Vishal Bharadwaj's dialogue keeps you in splits

Fists of fury fly; a crass item song is sung, a sting operation is conducted and good triumphs over evil

SLB's most commercial work till date, has nice doses of raunch and ras
