It's certainly not without its flaws, but this is the best film Anurag Kashyap has come out with since Black Friday. A very devastating story, filled with equally infuriating and amusing moments (the initial interrogation sequence at the police station) and characters who are all complete frauds and fakers.

The acting is also top-notch, with Girish Kulkarni pulling off the best performance of the group as Sub-Inspector Jadav. Probably the best Bollywood movie of the year.

This is only a "masterpiece" if you have the sensibilities of a 5-year old child. I mean, good grief. Nothing was funny, everyone overacted... I was expecting cartoon animals to jump out at the halfway point.

One of the best, as gangster movies go. Slick, compressed savagery.

So I heard a lot of good buzz about this film, decided to see it...

And it completely blew me away. This movie is one of the high points of Indian cinema, easily the best Hindi movie of 2013. Visually and intellectually, never before have I come across a movie so stunning. It makes several coherent, thought-provoking points and has many beautiful narratives. So happy that it was released in my area.

by the way, the rating for the film is now 8.5 - not 5.4 as is given here.

Languid, slow-paced noir film. Great characterization and use of emotion, not much violence or action. Very similar in style to the early noir films of the 70s. Solid movie with great acting, but nothing exceptional or amazing. The final twist was well done, but wasn't to the level of The Sixth Sense or Oldboy or anything like that. 7.3 is an appropriate rating.

Solid movie with great visuals. But 8.7 is too much for this film, should be closer to 7.5.

And why are people so convinced that this is manipulation? IMDb has a system that prevents vote-stuffing. The simple fact is that a lot of Indians really like this movie.

I had to sit and think for a long time after seeing this film. Kudos, Nolan. This movie is on another level.

90% of this movie was a smart, sleek, fast-paced action thriller. Unfortunately, the overlong ending was drowned under a massive deluge of melodrama. Still a good movie overall, watch it for the first 2 hours.

Very good movie, although at times it becomes a bit suffocating.

It's a decent movie - nothing more, nothing less. But it's being severely overrated, especially Lawrence's acting performance, which was solid but unspectacular.

Very well made movie. Shaky in parts, but overall a must-watch.

Not bad. But the central premise of the film - that your own daughter would make fun of you for speaking in Hindi IN INDIA - is very unrealistic.

Well-made movie. What's great in this film is how all three lives are woven so seamlessly together. The story and the experiences take centre stage, rather than the characters themselves. Great coming-of-age story. Still odd to see Aamir Khan playing such young roles - although his shortness probably helps.

@buddhalou plenty of non-Indians, including myself, liked this film. So your misguided snobbery is not needed here.

Very, very overrated. Many better international thrillers out there. And no, this has nothing to do with political opinion. The film itself was simply not that well made. Dry and stilted cinematography, and the lead actress kept hamming it up.

Perhaps one of the best Bollywood films made within the last 5 years. Definitely a must-watch.

Watching this film was an absolute joy. The very definition of a cinematic masterpiece. It's not hard to see why Indian cinema was among the best in the world during the 1950s and 60s.

Basically this film is I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, but with a more realistic plot and poorer acting.

@Jok3r You are completely wrong. In any case, a well-made film with a final twist that didn't gel with the rest of the movie.

The amount of effort and thought put into this film was tremendous. Incredibly well directed. However, the haphazard editing is a little grating. It seems that Kashyap tried to make the best film he could, without any regard to the sensibilities of his target audience. And that was why this movie bombed at the box office. Nevertheless, an incredibly brave effort.

Word of warning: As soon as this movie releases, rabid Shah Rukh Khan fans will swarm IMDb and give it perfect ratings. So the film will probably jump to about an 8.5 - 9.0 IMDb rating in the first week, then slowly fall back to Earth as sane filmgoers realize what an awful film it is.

If you go in expecting a comedic superhero movie that doesn't take itself seriously, you'll probably find it enjoyable.

If you go in expecting a serious, powerful superhero film... well...

Not a very good movie. It's basically 2.5 hours of "Take pity on me because I'm a Muslim and the world is unfair to me!!" Message doesn't resonate. Acting is decent, nothing spectacular and not as good as Forrest Gump.

Wonderful movie. Drama at its best, with excellent acting to boot.
