The acting, the cinematography, the production, it was all on point but the plot itself was a no for me. I think with some tweeks to the plot line, it could have potentially been really good. There was just too much unnecessary violence and betrayal and sexuality where it just didn't belong. There were a few really good dance sequences though, and the music is very good--I even went and bought a few of the songs. Overall It was definitely distinguishable from Romeo and Juliet so that, if you did decide to watch it, you don't feel like you're sitting through a rip-off of the original.

Wow! Much more than remake of Romeo & Juliet. As expected, fabulous music/dance and a, for me, surprise ending.

Kind of reminded me of the end of Sling Blade, which I just saw the previous day.

Appreciating Bollywood movies is an acquired taste, to be sure. This one is WELL worth it. Deepika and Ranveer were an "item" for a time after the movie was made and make a fine showing together. Some terrific music/dance numbers and very high production values all around. See other Deepika movies too, like "Cocktail," that the library has.

Some of the musical numbers were awesome--intense, beautiful, meaningful. Nagada Sang Dhol makes the whole movie worth it (and can be seen on youtube).

But others were kind of silly, and glamorized and trivialized the violence that shapes the whole environment and guides the story.

Mixed bag for me. I liked the chemistry and female leads, and found that side very interesting. But some of the twists of the Romeo character were a bit unbelievable or extreme--he's not just a womanizer, he runs a pornography business. Not necessary.

Romeo + Juliet in lust. Strong performances by the female cast. Cool music & costume design.

Bollywood at its best !

So much more than just a retelling of the Romeo and Juliet script !

Spectacular production values.
Vibrant star chemistry.
Often poetic, always mythological,.. and with no Shakesperian language.)
