| Lion Heart' is every bit as terrible as you expect it to be
Some things don't change; the MSG franchise is one of them. It takes guts to roll out such preachy and glorified films, but the saga continues with a devil-may-care attitude. Flower-print sneakers, a glittery T-shirt paired with a hoodie, a sword that turns into a pen and a spear that turns into sunglasses - that's rock-star Guruji for you. He does gravity-defying stunts, wearing cardboard Armour, that might make Isaac Newton turn in his grave and Rajinikanth insecure. Self-obsession is written all over the movie and Saint Dr MSG (yes, that's the name) strides in his bling-avatar with head held high, to win conquests and hearts (apparently); modesty and simplicity be damned.

This time around, Saint Dr MSG veers away from playing the spiritual guru and turns into the warrior Lion Heart aka Sher Dil who is invincible and immortal. The modern world is in danger from an alien invasion and Lion Heart is brought in to lead a counter-attack. But that's just an excuse to go into flashback and witness the glorified tale of Sher Dil, who had defeated the same aliens, 100 years ago. And mind you, these aliens are not the regular ones you might have seen in Hollywood flicks. They are humans who seem to have borrowed Amitabh Bachchan's light-bulb costume from the song Saara zamana.

There is a scene in the film when people go mad after a UFO sighting; that pretty much sums up the average viewer's experience, but fans of Saint Dr MSG are sure to shower heaps of praises on this film; the claps, cheers and whistles in the cinema halls stand testimony to that.

With plot twists that put daily soaps to shame, the film takes you on a tacky fantasy ride that ends abruptly. Why? Well, how else would there be MSG – The Warrior: Lion Heart 2?
