All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

A sexy, dopey film that believes all you need for an entertaining night out are copious amounts of dancing, singing, broad clowning and gorgeous people.

The film, written and directed by Sabbir Khan, has only one frantic desire: to entertain.

Advertised as the first Bollywood movie shot at a Hollywood studio with an appearance by a major US star, Sabbir Khan's proudly silly Kambakkht Ishq otherwise hews closely to a familiar Indian pattern.

Awesome dance numbers [are] the solution to Matthew McConaughey's ouvre. Basically it's How to Lose Your Sister's Guy in Hollywood.

Audience Reviews for Kambakkht Ishq

Akshay is a great actor so why is he choosing stupid roles. For such a big star cast you would THINK the movie was good, sadly it's not!


There is good energy and great fun in this movie. There are also some amazingly stupid jokes and scenarios, and I am uncomfortable with the idea that it is amusing to watch a group of men taunting a woman because her skirt is too short and her attitude is too defiant. The view of the stunt man's world is lovely, especially when you know that Akshay Kumar is a stunt man who has risen in the world, and that he still does all of his own stunts. (At least in this movie--it may not be completely true of Blue.)

One time watchable. kareena looks good. akshay is ok. rest are bad. all of universal studio rides are shot in the movie. I would wait for it on dvd.
