quick review:

When one proudly believes in the goodness of being bad, there's little left to say. The win-win situation - They were good both when the film started well and also when it ended ridiculously bad

Plot Summary

Suraj (Emraan Hashmi) moves to Australia. His plans to find a new life for himself end where they start. Despite his resistance he gets involved in the racial war between the Indians and the locals.

What Worked

  • The nomenclature given to the street where mostly Punjabis (Singhs) live King street. Singh is Kinng, anyone?
  • The subtle touch of humor and flirting.
  • Goldie's Satte Pe Satta style of getting work done. Though absolutely irrelevant in the context of the film.
  • In the scene in which Suraj (Emraan Hashmi) and Suhani (Neha Sharma) were having a banter on the way back from the banter - I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the guy in the back seat enjoying the back and forth.
  • The flashbacks with Suhani's sister's story

What did not
