The first Bollywood film I have watched in a number of years and the production values have improved greatly. The cinematography and the CGI in this film are very good. The plot is a modern retelling of the fairy story we all know. However the script writer never makes his mind up whether this is a fantasy, a comedy or a romantic film and as a result the plot suffers. The cast leave a lot to be desired generally they fail to make you care enough about the characters. However Amitabh Bachchan us superb as the genie and out acts everyone.
