Bang Bang, two words that would be heard loud and clear, across movie theatres this weekend. Siddharth Anand just doesn't go wrong with this one for sure. Claimed to be a remake of Knight and Day, it somewhere surely matches up to its standards. Siddharth has surely Indianized the movie to a major extent but it doesn't feel jerky and one can relate to the movie. Bang Bang makes you fall in love with Hrithik all over again.

A chance encounter of the unassuming bank receptionist Harleen Sahni (Katrina Kaif) with the charming yet mysterious Rajveer Nanda (Hrithik Roshan), results in an on-rush of ditched planes, car chases, shoot-outs, bombing raids and general global mayhem. But as the transcontinental chase follows with Rajveer convincing Harleen that he's the good guy, can she really trust him, and will trust matter when the bullets start flying?

Hrithik Roshan, essays the role of Rajveer Nanda. He is drop dead gorgeous in the film. Acting wise too Hrithik pulls off a good show. Action as a genre seems to be made for Hrithik. He can fly in the air so effortlessly, that even though the audience knows it's impossible, they just want to believe him. He carries the action convincingly throughout the film and somehow don't look unrealistic. The way he looks at a woman can make her weak in her knees and the way he fights with the villain can make him weak in the knees too, in the literal sense of the word. Bang Bang is truly Hrithik's show. If a thief can look like that I am sure every girl would want to be with a thief. (Pun intended)

Katrina Kaif, essays the role of Harleen Sahni who is a bank receptionist. Over the course of the film she is very charming and has a childlike charm to her. Surprisingly she carries of the small town girl image quite well. Even though she doesn't possess exceptional acting talent she is not a disturbance in the film. She shares a major part in the course of the story which is good part. Her best scene is when she reacts looking at Rajveer for the first time and is awestruck, well no one can blame her, because the sight was surely worth watching.

Danny Denzongpa essays the character of Omar Zafar, who is an international criminal. Be it Agnepath's kancha china or Bang Bang's Omar Zafar, Danny knows how to blurt out the evil within. Though he is hardly 3-4 scenes in the movie he is good in the little he does.

Vishal Shekhar's music is brilliant and goes well with the flow of the movie. The film is well paced and doesn't bore the audience. Cinematography is amazing, because of the beautiful locations of the Shilma, Prague and many more picturesque locations. Actions do take some amount of cinematic liberty but one wouldn't really mind.

All in all this long weekend gives you two varied options to choose between, Haider and Bang Bang. Thought like chalk and cheese, still a perfect plan. Bang Bang takes you on a reckless trip of a lot of action and excitement, and makes you fall in love with Hrithik Roshan all over again.
