Rani Mukherjee is one of Bollywood's big-name beauties, but that doesn't stop the Saawariya star from cross-dressing in this Hindi-language romantic comedy.

Rather than joining a women's team, she dons a beard and a sardar's garb and plays with the big boys. But will her dreams be deferred by a romance with a fellow player (Shahid Kapoor)? Anurag Singh directs this Punjab-set comedy that also stars Anupam Kher, Rakhi Sawant, and Sherlyn Chopra. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovi

    Great Movie, with great Songs. This Movie made me definetily Yash Raj Fan. I mean after watching "Ajaa Nachle" I gave many of Yash Raj Movies a chance and it turned out that his Movies are no Remakes. Original Stories.

    An absolutely hilarious movie!! Veera dreams of becoming a superstar in the world of cricket, ever since watching her favorite star players as a child. Playing in the fields in her spare time, she remarkably excels at batting left and right hand. After the town's local cricket... read more team loses a great match, she inspires to join the team and pursue her dreams of stardom. Being a female, she is barred from entering and begins to lose faith until an abrupt opportunity allows her to audition for a spot on the team, as young "Veer". Veer/Veera are one, and the same. With slim chances of playing, she decides to embark on a wild adventure of upholding her position and concealing her true identity. Until she meets the young captain of the cricket team, it is more trouble than she would like when she begins to like Rohan.
    Here is a movie that centrally depicts a character daring to dream beyond limitations, beyond the boundaries of 'so-called normality'. Veera dares to dream big, and not recede from the negative remarks and comments. Fantastic music!! Tons of laughter! Rani is truly sensational in the numerous unique roles that she casts for. Great cast- Rani Mukherjee, Shahid Kapoor, Anupam Kher, and Rakhi Sawant. Definitely worth seeing!

    There is only one reason I watch Bollywood and that is Shahid Kapoor. But this movie went beyond the grain to include crossdressing and sports, only adding to the entertainment value.

    Veera, played by Rani Mukerjee, is an aspiring cricket player, repeatedly discriminated by her... read more sex. Rohan is the sexy, foreigner (NRI) coach for the local cricket team. Veera decides to masquerade as Veer (with facial hair and Punjabi hair things) to join his team. But, while playing Veer, Rohan falls for Veera and vice versa. The romance aspect is very limited, but not really necessary with all the comedy.

    What I didn't like was how stage drama-like the settings and costumes were. None of them were realistic, but considering the plot, I shouldn't be making such a big fuss about it. The storyline is as unrealistic as it goes.

    Love the title song, Rani looked Cute, Great Bhanghra, could have chosen diff. team, Nice Speech, a fun Time Pass!

    DDLJ meets Chak De! But romance suffers at the cost of cricket. Much too long, it loses direction midway; it could use a lot more editing. In any case, Rani Mukherjee, as always, is wonderful- even in drag.
