Will his belief will win and his brother will come or he will fail his belief , is for the audience to watch .

Srcipt Analysis And Director Review : As the film is based on English movie Little Boy , which did not fare well at the box office , so how to  expect it to work in Bollywood , the script is weak and lacks at many points . The climax and end is way too obvious . A lot more was expected from the Director Kabir Khan who has given solid hit as Bajrangi Bhaijaan . But this time he has failed .The Music is very good , The songs are  a big hit and they are the Highlight .

Performances : Salman Khan has performed very well , his body language and expressions are perfect , one can feel the innocence of his heart .

Sohail Khan is average and lacks expressions

Shahrukh Khan is very very good , especially his get up is mind blowing

Zhu Zhu is wasted . Matin is very adorable and talented

Final Word : Watch it for Salman and Matin and their bonding
