YMMV: Main Hoon Na
  • 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 over the top at all.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome- 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 kills Raghavan with his own grenade, which also sets off the bombs in the gymnasium. Lucky also gets a mention for his helicopter rescue.
  • Harsher in Hindsight- 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 Beslan school hostage crisis in Chechnya, which occurred a few months after Main Hoon Na's release.
  • So Bad It's Awesome.
