Clean Unadulterated entertainment, Great performances
Lakshya is a very well made war, coming of age movie, which can compete with anything from the west.
I personally, feel it ends two debates, other than the fact that it establishes Hrithik as the ultra star-great actor mould (la Kamal Hassan),
a) Farhan Akhtar is the talent to watch for, A Mani Ratnam in the making for Hindi Cinema
b) Prabhu Deva can hand over mantel of the best ever dancer on screen to Hrithik Roshan (you have to see to believe what happens on the screen in the song "Main Asia kyun hoon", which Prabhu Deva himself has choreographed).
Just go and enjoy, this wonderful clean entertainer, which has great music and cinematography to complement the performances from the actors, and the skillful direction of Farhan Akhtar
