India's spaghetti western... but not valid for our times
This is just a movie for Indians who wish to see things that are practically condemned these days around the world. Yes, the classic features and music and dance performances in a "spaghetti western" as other user wrote, but bullets come and go... and overreacting into violence on behalf of the gods... and all the world thinking the fundamentalism violence is exclusive from Muslims.
I saw the promotion done by interviews to the cast and particularly to Saif Khan, when I was living in India. He said he will use real weapons... honestly, you have to be very stupid, and risking the fact that manipulating real guns for films is more expensive and dangerous. But it's for the marketing, and if you believe it, and like it, well, that's the kind of human being you are. Story is entertaining, while the character Raja deals with his new enemies in life and protects damsels in perish.
If you love Indian culture and you still swallow that new age religious manipulated stuff of the spirituality in India, don't watch this movie, because is the reflection of the ideal "macho" Indian version. Which the whole opposite of those fantasies sold by the tourism industry.
