Salaam-e-Ishq - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

An entertaining 2 hours sandwiched between a clumpsy beginning (45 minutes) and a boring end (another 45 minutes). It is worth watching once when you are in a mood for a light movie. But you don't need to rush to the theatres. Excellent acting and good direction. I especially enjoyed the parody on everything our "masala" movies stand for. Still wondering what the end product would be if it was 1.5 hours shorter.
