canada is not like that!!


The concept of Dus was not all that bad, but it was just made so terribly. Indian movies should not have a Canadian/American setting. it's just too unrealistic. What are the chances of an Indian cop ("Dan") running into an indian anti-terrorist group, and white men with sunglasses and beards don't go randomly shooting people on a bridge, and people don't put bombs on cars. This is not Canada, it's some make believe Western Country that indian cinema uses one too many time. Jo bole sonehal is a prime example of this b.s. i think i could make a better movie than these dumb directors given the chance!

Oh, and what was up with the relationship b/w abishek and sanjay dutt, were they brothers or father/son, cuz although they claimed to be brothers, they had a wierd relationship.

I liked the movie.........but I agree with Canadian ppl shooting randomly was just way out there! but many countries makes films like this though

Mother *beep* Are you out of your damn mind?! : Blade (1998)

Ok PEOPLE

Those white guys with beards (if you paid attention to the movie were suppose to KILL Jhambval but they instead shot Dan). If you remember before the white guys popped up. Altaf sat back in his car. Basically they were his men and they wanted to kill jhambval and finish Dus before it reached to the stadium and Abhishek and Zayed misunderstood thats why they shoot them back.

hmm, a little confused about what u're trying to say there buddy, clear what up (""bitc*"")?? That bollywood is gay and offensive? i wouldn't say it's offensive and i didn't say the movie has a racist tone at all...don't know what message u were reading. i jsut think there is a non fiction sector, and then their is pure B.S. The latter being Dus, considering the storyline is far beyond reality, and I know Bollywood movies are about action and not sensible plot, but the way western countries are depicted are so false. it makes you think where these directors went to school or if they even did.

**one more thing: my point about the bridge shooting wasn't about who the ganster was trying to kill, but just that idea of shooting is too far fetched. that kind of thing does not happen in Canada! (and no one please say 'it's just a movie' cuz i know-jsut saying what's on my mind)

it's true dat canada was presented to be terror filled country when it is one of the most peacemakers but what movie doesn't get unrealistic sometimes. see an example of ghulam with aamir khan and rani mukherjee. what are the odds aamir khan wannabes would have tried to post a flag on the railtrack when a train is coming on a dare. such stupid things dun count. and if u just love criticizing bollywood den go and go watch hollywood movies. hollywood is 100 times as unrealistic as bollywood. besides what wouldn't a person do if he/she is being paid to do it. and i noe a lot of indian police officers in canada and u.s. so why make a big deal. whoever tells me hollywood is not unrealistic in 95% of the movies ill think of myself as a bollywood stupid. period.

It actually IS Canada, in where I live.

It's Calgary, Alberta.

If you want proof, you can see in many scenes that the Calgary Tower in Downtown.

Actually, in Tum Bin, also by Anubhav Sinha, it's shot in Calgary too.

Yup, noone needs proof to know thats Calgary. I'm a Calgarian myself lol...theres not just the Tower, theres also a shot of the Saddledome, and any Calgarian can recognize Downtown Calgary :)

Not to mention that there is indeed a McMahon Stadium in Calgary, but it sucked they used shots of Yankee Stadium in New York for the exterior shots...and if you've been in Calgary City Hall, you probably saw it at the end with Sanjay Dutt and Jamwal.

Theres also the shots of the Calgary Airport, with the Air Canada plane, and the un-mistakeable Calgary Airport Terminal in the background. Then at the end, where they used the Airport parking facility for Aditya's stadium car bomb scenes lol...need I say more?

me...and a racist????
ok why don't you go and watch some hollywood movies that have violence and compare them to bollywood. my point is that the point of movies is for you to see and understand the plot, not criticize and talk *beep* about the setting, characters etc. And plus if you're living in canada, you should have knowledge that this movie wanted some good and 'chatpata' location so that the movie grabs the attention of people. all of dus criticizers are bunch of nothings and no lifes bcuz personally i think this goes in one of the best bollywood movies. plus the songs are great too...
