The only thing you carry home is Shahid Kapoor’s earnest performance. But he seems to have gone completely undirected in this film and that’s why the performance often slips from good to just about okay. As for result, this time, unfortunately, the shoddy script nullifies the actor’s efforts. Though Shahid’s sincerity shows in many scenes. He has a ring of sincerity as Sam, the struggler. His dances are exceptional. Shahid Finally the entire burden of carrying off this film lands on Shahid Kapoor’s shoulders and his chiseled flashboard abs prove of no help in this respect. He dances fabulously and acts convincingly but isn’t able to salvage the sinking ship.
Genelia looks cute and provides some pleasant moments, but her role doesn’t demand histrionics. She is delightful and appealing. She is in her as usual ebullient self. Though she does a decent job, free-wheeling and endearing. Just getting used to her draggy diction can be bit of a problem. Genelia saddled with a half-baked role and left pretty much to her own devices, screeches through her scenes and strums up none of that buoyant energy one has come to expect from her.
Shahid and Genelia make a cute couple on screen; their chemistry is concocted at the same dull and dreary speed with which Genelia rides her two-wheeler in those two hilarious scenes of the film.
Mohnish Bahl is mediocre. Parikshit Sahni is getting typecast as the father. The kids try too hard to be cute. Zian Khan esp. has lost his childish charm.
