its high time that ghai needs to route back to his originality

Its high time that ghai understands what people expect from his movies.He has lost that magical touch which he used to have for his earlier movies and is behind making movies for people other than us. How can he expect us to bear his movies which are completely junk.

I dont know why Ghai has is hurt by Kisna's "success".

How can he expect such movies to be hit! That was the worst even movie I have seen in last many years.

Ghai should watch kisna again

It was a bad movie, a novel idea but that is where it ends. There are too many loop holes in the script to begin with. So many sub plots. Infact it had all the villian's bollywood has ever produced, an angry dad, a corrupted mama, and the most favourite, an evil thakur. Between all of them and the independence era, Ghai's story end up being a disgusting soup.

Let it hurt, but learn lessons from it, Mr. Ghai

The fact that Mr. Ghai would not accept that he has made a trash proves that he is in a state of denial with "Kisna". If not trash, this movie is seriously close to it. I think Mr. Ghai has grown over-confident and taken the Indian audience for granted after having produced many hits.
The beginning and closing shots of Kisna are pathetically a copy of Titanic, even the background music is painfully similar. The actual story, hardly a page long, have been dragged on for 3.5 hours with completely unfounded events and songs. The script and story cries for logic or at least some kind of sense and relevance. And, at the end the silhouette of hatted Mr. Ghai on the movie screen drives the final nail in the coffin of his beloved child Kisna. That was definitely one thing too many for the audience to take after the onslaught on mind, intelligence and logic for 3.5 hours.

what rubbish!

I am amazed after reading this sentence from Ghai : 'Had I made trash and it had made a lot of money, I would not have been happy at all'. He states this when h eknows that he has raked lots of money by creating trash films like 'Ram Lakhan'. People know what are good films and to decide whether a film is good or not after watching films. Ghai should stop making a show and pomp of himself. Directors like Shyam Benegal, Gulzar, Govind Nihalani have never required to make statement ever that they make good films. I think Ghai should learn something from these greats to know about 'Good Films'. Flops like Trimurti have also fetched him a good amount of money. Ghai, its time for you to stop somewhere nowonwards!

Exactly which is your message. Ghai is not to be compared with Benegal & Nihalani's, but with mindless Johar's, Chopra's & Bhansali's.

The kind of crap being churned around in the name of creativity like Black, Veer Zaara & Kal Ho Na Ho find acclaim only because they are popular. Period.

Kisna's ONLY minus point was an unsaleable hero. Had it been an Aamir Khan or an Akshay Kumar in the lead, we weould be singing a different tune.

Kisna was a rubbish movie, and jolly well deserved to fail at the box office. There was nothing in the movie except for some reptitive chase scenes, sterotype characters, and got-up 'formula'/cliched sequences. The only plus points of the movie were the splendid cinematography (the natural loacles) and the photogenic foreign heroine !

Subhash Ghai's standards are definitely falling rapidly as judged by the quality of his last few films- he is arrogant enough to think that any bib budget movie made by him will sell, just becuase of the 'Suhash Ghai' tag !
