Bajrangi Bhaijaan is ringing in a happy eid for all. Irfan Khan says he is definitely going to see this film, first day first show. Salman Khan did a personal screening of the film for his family. Initial reviews put the film in the ‘must see’ category.

Among the reasons cited, is Harshaali Malhotra who plays the voiceless Pakistani girl lost in India. Her big innocent round eyes, cherubic face and angelic smile has won the hearts of the moviegoers. The Quint calls her the WCD –Weapon of Critic Destruction – eclipsing all the flaws in the film and mesmerising one and all with her pristine presence. She single handedly makes it a must watch.

And then, they say, there is Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing the role of a Pakistani journalist. His amazing understanding of mainstream commercial cinema and flawless performance comes as no surprise.

To celebrate Eid Irfan Khan style, I too may be heading to see Bajrangi Bhaijaan today.
