I, Me Aur Main - External Reviews

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

I, Me Aur Myself takes being full of oneself to a new level. Sure, we know enough people around us who are full of themselves, but doesn't make watching them in a film any more interesting.

Thumbs down by Vinayak Chakravorty, india today ...John Abraham does well with his author-backed role, mixing dash and dilemma. Chitrangada and Prachi are too stereotyped in their casting - it's almost as if you would expect these actresses to play out the roles they get. ... full review
