Audience Reviews for Wanted
Wanted, from director Prabhu Deva, has a bit of everything, and like a puzzle it takes a while to put everything together.
The run time is quite long at around 2 hours and 20 minutes, but take away the music videos and it shortens to 2 hours. The fast pacing of the scenes and the various subplots come and go in entertaining fashion; however, with all that is going on, it is a bit difficult to get a firm grasp on the plot itself.
The 5 musical pieces take advantage of luxurious settings and lots of dance choreography. The songs themselves can be catchy and most are upbeat dance numbers.
The action is a lot of wire work stunts and camera effects. The violence, while not excessively bloody, is gruesome when it comes to the deaths and major hits. This is a bit of a surprise when comparing to the other elements of the film.
The acting is good for what it is, as the characters are more on the unconventional side. Salman Khan is a believable thuggish hero and Ayesha Takia is enticing just with her gorgeous looks.
When all is said and done, the romantic flirting, quirky side characters, and action somehow mesh together into one film known as Wanted.
