Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey
Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sikander Kher, Vishakha Singh, Samrat Mukerji, Maninder, Feroz Wahid KhanAbsorbing, informative and inspiring film. Recreates the bygone era convincinglyExcessive lengthIs a colossal disappointment. Collected approx. Rs. 3.25 cr. in its opening weekend. The poor occupancy at cineplexes has sent shock waves across the film fraternity. Will entail heavy losses to its investors. Disaster
