Vaada Raha - External Reviews

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

There isn't much a cute kid with decent acting skills can do with sentimental lines and gone-mental screenplay. The overall plot is uber-predictable. And how the film gets there is as mechanical as it can get.
