No amount of star power, guest appearances, insanely infectious song and dance numbers, state of the art technology and promotion can compensate for a weak script, inept dialogue, hackneyed performances and poor story telling.
Funny the reviewer does not know London from Miami. Can we really trust the review? I would not :)

Steve, I agree with you. She's just a wanna be reviewer.

It just annoys me to no end when our desis put down their own films especially when these movies have been appreciated by the rest of the world. Ra One, My Name is Khan are a few examples. And then they wonder why the world does not respect them. Today I went saw RA One with a 50+ year old Canadian friend and his 20 year old sun. They both loved the movie and found it better than some of their own super hero movies. They even enjoyed the music. Even here on Rotten Tomotoes, most foreigners have given positive reviews while 2 out of 3 bad ones are from our bharatiya naaris (desi females) who probably can't even spell science fiction

I agree with steve R.
I dont know why they always pull down the desi workz.

I think because they have inferiority complex so they try to pretend to be intelligent. The funny thing is that all western reviewers who have given most of the positive reviews will crack up laughing at these two samples of bharatiya naaris and their reviews.
I still can't believe she referred to London as Miami. Wonder if she ever got out of Ghatkoper.
I know I am being rude but can't help it. It's because of all these so called intelligent reviewers the movie is not getting the respect it deserves. They have destroyed someone's hard work.

This is what I had to write about Ra-One
"It is with absolute disgust, a sense of shame and eagerness that I
write this review. A movie that lacks character, script, story-line and
finesse is expected to impress the audience with just one element - A
over hyped budget invested into visual effects. Oh by the way, did I
also mention it has also copied various themes from Sucker Punch, Iron
Man, Terminator and Spider-man? The movie is such a awful mess, it is
not worth even a watch even if you life depended on it! I mean where in
the world do you get the director making fun of a character you are
expected to take seriously. And where the main theme was to keep it
dedicated to a family audience, you have so many embarrassing moments
which try their best to fall into the category of humor but seriously
fall short into making people uneasy in their seats. All in all,
superstar SRK post promotional attempts have been to keep a smiling
face, employ the services of marketing companies and pay movie critics
to praise and compensate for undoubtedly what qualifies as the most
shameful and sad attempt by the Indian Cinematic Movement to try to
qualify itself as a formidable force in entertainment. I would say,
better than watching this movie, is go home and wash the dishes."

I wonder why did you sit the whole 3 hours of the movie if it was that boring? You missed the dishes bro, go do your dishes and when done, please do mine too. :)
Nov 6 - 02:21 PM
I didn't waste my time paying to watch the movie nor did I invest my time in going through it. I downloaded it for free, jumped to the parts I thought would make sense and then deleted the absolute waste of space.
And yeah, thanks to that I had time to wash the dishes!

LOY, You didn't watch the movie so stfu. YOUR OPINION DOESN'T COUNT!!!

well said,cant agree more....

Looks like Priya created a supporter to further trash the movie. Looks tlike SRK forgot to pay Priya for praising his movie, hence the bad review :)
Nov 6 - 12:19 PM
Even if I got paid to praise this movie, I wouldn't be able to simply because my reputation would go to the dogs once people would read how insincere it is.

No Indian eats noodles with curd ( yogurt ) . it is just a disgusting movie with high technology that makes people get amazed.
Nov 11 - 11:55 AM
The highlight of the movie was it's special effects. Watching a bad pre-release print and then complaining about it is crazy.
So, you are mad because they showed Noodles/yogurt instead of rice/yogurt? Is there a hard and fast rule against it? People can try several variations as far as mixing foods are concerned (you must not watch India's Master Chef) Besides, he was eating it in London and not India
Anyways, overall India still prefers typical masala movies and anything new for them is bakwaas.
Nov 16 - 12:39 AM
Also, you were implying that SRK was paying people to praise his movie and since Priya did not praise it but rather trashed it, I felt she did not get the baksheesh from SRK.
