Goldie Behl's much-hyped, star-studded Drona is more than a disappointment. It's a waste.

Audience Reviews for Drona

Talk about comic books had somehow led me to expect cartoon style, and this is lush fantasy. It is a great shame that lack of exposure to Hindi cinema will keep this movie unknown to many who would love the swashbuckling style of this fantasy. While this is "loosely tied" to Hindu mythology, a lack of knowledge of those stories will not hinder your appreciation of this in the least. If you enjoy fantasy this is worth seeing. I keep coming back in my mind to the sheer beauty of scene after scene.

Here is a good movie that centralizes around one man's quest to protect the earth and mankind. Drona, a human warrior who is destined to protect the nectar of life at all costs, is confounded in one man, Adi. Growing up as an orphan, Adi believes there is nothing good in the world except for a caring uncle. Believing he is truly unworthy and bad luck, he deals with his bitter aunt and spoiled cousin day after day. Until he meets Sonia and she tells him of his true past and lineage. It is then that Adi is faced with this history, and wonders if it is actually true. Great cast- Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, and Jaya Bachchan. Worthy!

Horrible. I can't believe someone paid money to make this movie! If you like Abhishek stay away from this movie!
