Like Amir Khan , Salman Khan .. The whole kareena kapoor's character was confusing in the movie.

Don't waste your money for this terrible experience, except if you want to sleep in AC for 2.5 hrs.

The first half is entertaining while second half dips.

Whole movie is predictable!!

Barring the stupid direction and boring screenplay, Kareena Kapoor is the only saving grace in this film.

But there the director was more interested in entertaining the audience with some great mix of fun, song, dance, sex and drama.

The film begins on loose ends confusing the audience about the story.

The movie is all about Kareena kapoor AKA Mahi's life .. Story is same as Dirty Picture but more boring!!

But Kareena Kapoor makes the experience worth watching!!

It's simple yet predictable.

Frankly speaking , 1st half is a complete bore and hopeless.

But all in all a nice entertaining fare!

Story is boring.

There was no story at all and I was confused what was going on in the movie.

The beginning of the movie itself was confusing, i am sure Madhur wanted to try something new this time.

The film is an entertaining, daring, emotional, shocking, glamorous, scandalous behind the scenes account of the reality behind the world of glitz and glamour that our film stars inhabit.

A sheer waste of time.

We see this ALL THE TIME in reality, that's why people got bored seeing it again.

One of the boring movies from Madhur Bhandarkar.

Perhaps Bhandarkar was aware of Kapoor's limitations and had the voice-over of a pointless reporter character (one of the most annoying features of 'Heroine') dictate how the viewer is supposed to feel.

There are several great scenes, the film starts with a jolt and it slowly gets you involved, but the film seems like one tedious exercise towards the end.

Direction by Madhur Bandarkar is good but he needs to change his style,he is getting repetitive and please he needs to stop showing gays in every film.

While movie itself is sulky, sloppy, boring and bad in all parts.

The theme of the movie was good but Bhandarkar's repetitive introduction of character right from page 3 till heroine makes it realize as if you are watching the same movie.

This is one bad-ass, regressive, depressive, narcissistic, over- indulgent, formulaic and overall, pathetic film.

Story: There is no story at all.

Fashion was different because we see models everywhere in Ads and magazines but don't even know their names and let alone personal life, but we know EVERYTHING about film stars so that's why people got bored watching it again.

Thankfully, Kareena scores well & looks stunning with one of her career best performances which remains the only reason why it can be watched once, in order to honor her honest attempt.

Others who deserve the credit of making the good segments of the movie exciting as well as entertaining are the actors like Ranvir Shorey, Divya Dutt and Shahana Goswami who have time and again proved their mettle as high caliber character actors.

is definitely jealous as many times denied her entry to top as an good actress by filmy sabotaging edits and propaganda promo dominated by the heavy weights....

While the first half does involve you, despite the predictability, the second half becomes a melodrama and slow paced especially towards the end.

The first 15 minutes of the film are slow.

I would actually recommend it for a slow night.

The slimy, lecherous leading men-Sanjay Suri the best, back stabbing co-stars-Mugdha Godse and an unexpected bond in parallel cinema-Sahana Goswami.

Though engrossing, the movie appears to be too long and the director seems to have attempted to cover as many facets of the cine-world, as possible which has, after a point, made the movie as burdensome.
