OMG what can I say this is one of the best movies Bollywood has ever made, the way they used technology shows we can also create movies as good as Hollywood and I love this movie it's the best, the story, the gadgets, and even the actors it's really good and they should make a two and the people that didn't like it am sorry but you need to check your brain it's one of the best movies ever?the music was amazing and I'm running out of words to say, all I say is the script was well good , the acting, the actors, the music and everything there's not a single thing I didn't like, maybe some people didn't like it because they are use the old type of Indian movies not these high technological movies, even all Ma friends liked it and the younger generation like teenagers now all love this movie anyway good work keep it up .
Wasted a Saturday and 150 bucks on this. The only thing that sticks out of this movie are the action sequences. There is no story to begin with and with times it is clearly evident that the actions are as well mindless and in most places unneeded.
There are a million plot holes but no need to pick those as after about 20 minutes in the film you will understand that the producers have only paid for the action sequences, the cast and the crews and no money has been given to the scriptwriter.
If you really want to know the one paragraph plot then here it is — Vivek Oberoi plays Prince, a supposedly high-profile thief, who has lost his memory. Everyone is after his life and in the process he knows that they are after a coin.
Overall cinematography is good, but the acting is comical in a serious film. With such laughable and wooden acting it is hard for Vivek to even get a decent solo hit and rest of the star cast are there like stereotypes. Bad villains, Bond type female right-hand, useless Police…and the list goes on.
So, spare the money, forget about this royal mess.
3/10 – only for the needless actions and cinematography.
'Prince' caught my attention right from the moment I saw it's first promo, the promos were looking fantastic. The soundtrack was ruling my Ipod, so watching 'Prince' was a must for me! Kookie V. Gulati's 'Prince' is a film that works in bits and pieces. It has a terrific first hour, but the second hour struggles. However, It's amazing music, Camera-work, Action/Stunts and a superb performance by Vivek Oberoi makes this half-hearted fare a decent one-time watch.
Here's something I want to say: Shiraz Ahmed's screenplay is watertight in the first hour. The suspense unfolds beautiful, it's keeps you at the Grip. But as soon the second hr beings, the screenplay becomes a mess. The climax, especially, is the weakest link. It leaves no impact whatsoever! A film that could've been a power-packed entertainer, sadly ends up becoming a strictly one-time watch, as mentioned from the beginning.
Watch 'Prince' for the pluses it has. But be ready to come out half-hearted!
The movie is great, really awesome, fantastic story suspense in every step, if people aren't satisfied with this story then they can't find anything better. If this would be a Hollywood movie then people would love it. The problem is that the typical Indian audience just want family drama stuff and they can't welcome such new concepts. Overall the movie is great, a must watch movie, great action, suspense. Vivek Rocks …… I'm waiting for it's sequels too….. The movie is actually ignored because most of the viewers don't like Vivek, to be very honest…. A great story you will find in it and stunts too than those useless super hits like Chennai Express, Ek Tha Tiger…. etc…
