Child Matin Rey Tangu bonded well with Salman Khan on the film sets he would call everyone uncle on the sets whereas for Salman Khan he would refer as "Bibing Salman" referring him as elder brother.See more »
Anachronisms: The movie is set in '60s but throughout the movie, India Post boards and post boxes bear logo which was designed in the year 1995. As a matter of fact, India Post didn't have any brand-identity before late 1993 either.

It doesn't even flicker for a moment, 23 June 2017
Author: dineshprakash from India

It is difficult to believe that a Director with good track record can node yes to lead such a lame story and screenplay. It seems that someone else of his name has directed the film. Director must be aware of the lead actor strength because of his long association with him but in this movie he totally exposed actors weakness. In emotional scenes sometimes lead actor looks funny sometimes irritating. All characters and actors in film look visibly alone even being connected to each other. Film is so slow that you pray to its end in climax. First they punch you irritating assumed emotional pre climax then kick you with childish climax. That shoe exchange excuse is so stale and repeated. Kid looks cute but then his name was kept, thinking it is funny but repetition of his name sounds eventually filthy. Background gun shots sounds as cannon shot. I just cherished a moment when lead actor throws ash and second lead actor runs and then diffuses as ash. Performance wise all good actors are wasted. Especially lead actor doesn't fit this character.
