Double Dhamaal - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

It's a shame that actors are brilliant with their comic-timing are made to over-act, be loud, sleazy and outright disgusting. Any little trust you might have in the "scripts" they choose, is misplaced.
