Nice popcorn flick!
My verdict is it's watchable. I truly thought I'll have bad opinion about this movie considering the severe criticisms I've been reading about it of late. Surprise! It ain't bad at all, at least for me. It's actually a nice entertainer, if you don't expect too much.
The pros are it's for family viewing, impressive performances, cute story & chic costumes.
While the cons, I felt, it was the too simple treatment given (no scene lingers for long in your mind) and the forgettable songs.
I think the show stealer was Sohail Khan with his naughty pranks that makes you root for him throughout. Like Raj Kapoor in Mera Naam Joker, our Khan Laughs outside and silently weeps inside....Hey it's not a tragic movie though. There are quite a number of funny moments which eclipses the sadness. And no common clichés of a typical Bollywood movie.
Regarding the other major performances - Salman Khan looked like he didn't sleep for a week but still a decent perfromance. Kareena Kapoor was pretty & showed understated acting. Well done. Yash Tonk was another cool guy with a funny bone. Both Sohail & Yash push the movie out of sheer boredom.
Whatever be the reviews out there, I say go for it if you wish, with a bag of popcorn and munch with a smile :)
