Baabul

This movie had all the makings to be great with its all star cast and a very important subject concerning how India treats its widows. But this film failed on one simple fact - a very poor script. The diaglogues were very cliche and corny to say the least. I also felt the direction was poor (compared to Baghban) and the editing could have been a lot better. Amitabh was mediocre and not fully utilised. John Abraham looked worn out. Salman's acting never changes...there is nothing new about his moves.
Highlight of the movie - Sarika...nice to see shades of her acting again, and the song "Bebasi"
