A loser and punter who is good at gully cricket goes on to play golf professionally and challenges the current champion
18 September 2016 | by ananth-66692See all my reviews

The first half of this movie does have a couple of cheap laughs - no deep humor, but if you are in the mood for some humor, it wont hurt. You can leave just about an hour into the movie as the story line crumbles and it becomes your usual stereotyped Hindi movie.

If you thought you should have walked out of Vicky Donor in the interval, then you should definitely do the same here.

Recommended: For those who have nothing to do.

Not recommended: For those who have anything else to do - listen to music, read crappy movie blogs, chat with an ex on Facebook; just anything really!
