Hi, I was going through the reviews posted. Most of them (or say All of them) poses negative comments. But I felt that the movie was not so bad. The acting of Catherine was quite good as the way she narrates dialogues at screen and the expressions she show for the same, was really appreciable. Also, the dance sequence by all the 3 actresses was quite good. And, last but not the least, acting by Amrish Puri is highly appreciable (by me!!). -Regards Ambrish

I appreciate your views. but dont tell me that Amrish Puri has acted well. what is there for him to act?? but for a couple of scenes with a wierd makeup.
The movie is like an unending, uninteresting story, without any focus.
Troubles keep on coming, New and named characters keep on introducing till the last moment, the old lady goes on with her story and when she's done another oldie starts! And oh how the gymnast dancer doesn't get tired of all the tricks on the rope! Onely thing remaining in the tricks is going on top of the rope and giving a 'Salam'! As and when the gymnast started her tricks the whole theatre laughed and clapped!!!
I think Mr. Ghai needs a break. And A.R. Rehman really needs to think before he signs new movies now.
I did not paid any money to watch the world premiere of Kisna at Inox, Pune. But I wasted about 2 hours in the hall and left the hall before completion of the movie. Even then I felt that Kisna is a "horrible movie", how people can make movies like this. The actors are not "acting" in that movie at all. Only some third class dance and songs and series of "rope climbing" that all. Nothing impressive at all. I have seen younsters running in INOX, Pune to see the "stars" of that movie. I feel pitty about them. The movie was horrible than Tsunami. All of us were forced to listen to politicians like Suresh Kalmadi for an hour on that day. Please don't waste your time and money. All the media except rediff.com gave the real review about this movie.
Kisna is among the most boring movies I've ever seen. Not that it's that big a surprise as it's a typical Subash Ghai fare - anyone who had the guts to make a "work of art" like Yaadein cannot suddenly turn into an intelligent human being! Kisna is a movie with a very simple storyline - Indian male meets British girl; helps her go back to the UK; falls for her but marries his Indian fiancee instead. Ok, when there's no story, atleast there needs to be a tight script to capture the interest of the audience - this film lacks both. The only saving grace is that the film is so funny in the sense that all the scenes that were meant to be serious invoke so much laughter that its good to watch with your friends and shake your head in incredulity. About the cast - Vivek Oberoi has nothing much to do but look morose; the white girl is pretty and tries to act and comes out reasonably okay; the yoga-doing-contortionist girl is hilarious whenever she hangs like a "Betaal"(of Vikram-Betaal fame) atop a tree. I mean, imagine being married to her, waking up in the morning, sipping a cup of coffee, look up and find your wife dangling by a rope from a tree like a bat!!! What a stupid movie!
Normally rediff reviews are so biased against a movie that when i saw a review thatw as actually positive, I though, WOW! it must be a great movie!! What turned out was that Subhash ghai has come up with another turkey in the lines of Trimurti and Yaadein. Guess ghai saab showed the reviewer another version of the movie, or he was bored writing reviews biased against movies, that he randomly chose a movie to praise. wish it wasn't this one, though. The second half literally sucks. the first half, though slow is the only saving grace, apart from a good performance form the British actress, antonia bernath. Isha sharwani is just there for dancing in the songs. and amrish puri's last role is possibly one of his worst, he's totally neglected for most of the film, and comes in, just to be killed easily by the "hero". all-in-all, a sad movie!!
its the one of the worst movie ,i have ever seem . Ghai has again wasted a lot of amount on making a movie bigger and bigger but more flop than the previous one . there are lots of songs and scenes which cud have been avoided . vivek doesnt look impressive . this movie might appeal western viewers but it doesnt have hope for mass . I pity on the new girl isha , her first movie is such a pain and her role too gives u a pain . Director has made her look very funny like doing things on rope and putting legs on her shoulders ..whats that .if u wanna show her dancing skills , shoot her in a gud dance sequence and yeah she looks awful in the movie . British actress has done her part wonderfuly . in the end movie gets at the peak of its stupidity .
I m sure Ghai must have given u a good amount for writing this review. I saw movie yesterday. U compared it with Lagan and said that it has better details. Let me tell u that this is not even close to the shadow of lagan. And as the detailing comes how can u forget Pinjar and The Legend...
The movie is awefull with bad performances, bad dialouges and bed editing. It shows has good photography but that we can see on Discovery or NatGeo then why waste our money. I must say that Ghai is going to be Next Dev Anand in our industry.
I read this review and wasted my money on this movie. Subhash Ghai has made a cheap movie instead of a decent period movie. The characters are very shallow and loud - so typical of Ghai movies. Reviewer either is a brother-in-law of Subhash Ghai or the main distributor.
It is clear that the reviewer has some connection to the film or its unit. Later while reading Yashpal Sharma's interview in rediff (in a related article of Kisna) I discovered that Raja Sen was/is an Associate Director to Subash Ghai. So all you guys relax, now you know why the review and the reviewer were on cloud nine.
I also happen to be one of the 25 (total no. of people in the theatre) people who watched it yesterday. I agree with whatever most of the people have written.
Truly Subash Ghai has turned senile with age and should not risk making another film.
He's past 60 and should seriously consider taking sanyas at Dev Prayag/ Shiv Puri.
Sorry Mr. Ghai, for the comment but I think you should join Whistling Woods as a first student!!!
