Critic Reviews for Holiday

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

The action sequences mostly have tension and punch, even if the movie is old-school long - 2 hours 41 minutes - and the plot doesn't bear too much scrutiny.

Audience Reviews for Holiday

Only in India can a movie start as a cute romantic comedy, only to be interrupted by a hard ass counter terrorism drama/John Woo-eque action film, which sporadically resumes and departs, so that our hero can get back to cutting off the pinky fingers of the bad guys BEFORE he interrogates them.. Also: Song and dance numbers - now with auto tune (but some how less annoying in Hindi).

Super Reviewer


A Bollywood action melodrama that careens from action to romance to musical production numbers to comedy to drama with the abrupt shifts in tone Bollywood audiences are accustomed to, but which can unsettle American audiences who are used to movies that are straightforwardly just one thing (or maybe two). The movie's strengths, including a very likeable cast and well made dance and action sequences, are nearly undone by over-reliance on a "sleeper cell" plot that doesn't really understand the nature of sleeper cells. And the distractingly cartoonish blood effects CGI wasn't up to the production values of the rest of the movie.
