* {{Anvilicious}}- The otherwise completely silly plot is punctuated by moments of deadly serious political commentary regarding Indo-Pakistani relations, as well as some instances of violence that aren't [[RefugeInAudacity over the top at all]].
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome- Ram just keeps outdoing himself. First he almost single-handedly rescues General Bakshi from a squad of gunmen, then he chases down the bad guy's car using a borrowed ''bicycle taxi,'' then he [[spoiler: kills Raghavan [[HoistByHisOwnPetard with his own grenade]], which also sets off the bombs in the gymnasium.]] Lucky also gets a mention for his helicopter rescue.
* HarsherInHindsight- Terrorist gunmen shooting up an Indian television studio is less fun to watch in light of the 2008 terrorist attacks on Mumbai. The scene where Raghavan's mooks crowd the school's students into a bomb-rigged gymnasium is also uncomfortably evocative of the 2004 [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_school_hostage_crisis Beslan school hostage crisis]] in Chechnya, which occurred a few months after Main Hoon Na's release.
* [[SoBadItsGood So Bad It's Awesome]].
