Save yourself
2 October 2008 | by kadernaniSee all my reviews

I totally disagree with the earlier comment made about the movie. I think its probably by one of the movie promoters. Drona is easily one of the worst movies in Indian history. I would never downgrade a movie but in this instance I feel obliged to save other people from watching an awfully terrible movie that lacks originality. From Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings to Heath Ledger role in Batman. They have copied everything and in the end come up with the worst movie. Even the music is pain to the ears, the location crap, the computer graphics too fake, the costumes a shame to the Indian film industry and finally an acting worst than first time auditions.
