      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Oh, this could have been such a wonderful fantasy, harking back to ancient Indian tales of intrigue and mystery, full of tilasmi nagris, and jaadui talwaars. But the plot's ludicrous. May 2, 2019 Full Review Anil Sinanan Time Out It drones on, taking itself far too seriously without any understanding of the genre it is trying to emulate. Bachchan and Chopra emote by slapping on as much mascara as possible. Rated: 1/5 Oct 24, 2017 Full Review Itrath Syed Georgia Straight Goldie Behl's much-hyped, star-studded Drona is more than a disappointment. It's a waste. Jul 5, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member A bad but irritatingly-catchy superhero movie, copying it's costume and set-up from the PRINCE OF PERSIA game series! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I've seen better caves made of cardboard in the EId programs produced by BTV 15 years ago Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Harry Potter & LOTR rip off. Hilarious in parts, though I don't think it was meant that way!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice cult classic! Great graphics. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Far away in a distant town, there was once a young man named Aditya (Abhishek Bachchan), brought up by a foster family, Adita was unaware of his real identity and the destiny that awaited him. Ever since he was a child, a recurring nightmare haunted him. And when he woke up in fright, there was no one he could ever hold on to except for a magical Blue Cross petal that came wafting in the wind, never failing to make him smile through his tears. Somewhere far from here, an evil sorcerer, Riz Raizada (Kay Kay Menon), a descendant of the "asuras" (legendary demons) had become dangerously impatient, in his thirst for the precious secret. The secret, which was the missing link, in this grand plan of taking over the universe. To get to the secret, he'd have to defeat the Drona. And herein, lay his problem. He didn't know who or where the Drona was! One sudden day Aditya and Riz came face to face and Riz immediately recognized him as the Drona. Aditya's destiny had caught up with him and his life was about to take him on a journey he had never imagined. Aditya couldn't comprehend why Riz's men were hunting him down. Just when he was about to be captured, a cult that believed that The Drona was their Messiah came to his rescue. Sonia (Priyanka Chopra), the leader of the cult, revealed Aditya's real identify to him. Baffled, Aditya found it all too hard to believe. Having no time to lose, Sonia decided to take Aditya back to his place of birth, the ancient kingdom of Pratapgarh where his mother, Queen Jayanti Devi (Jaya Bachchan) would have all the answers to his questions. But before he could embrace his mother, Riz and his army of the darkest powers caught up with him. Aditya would now have to rise to the occasion and embrace his destiny. For the sake of mankind he would have to become the legendary warrior he was born to be. Drona. Thus began Drona's journey through myths and legends. Along with Sonia, he would fight the evil spells of the absolutely lethal Riz Raizada. By battling odds, he would discover skills that he never knew he had. This movie had high expectation, but after watching this movie, the viewers would think, why they were waiting for this movie! The movie boasts of some fine special effects, but does not story & performances means anything to the makers of the movie? The movie also boasts of some of the worst performances & direction ever in the history of Bollywood. The direction by Goldie Behl is very poor. The performances by Abhishek & Kay Kay, it just can be termed as "Horrible". Priyanka Chopra was fine. Unexpected. Too bad that the right word for this flick has not yet been made. One of the worst film of Bollywood ever. Tops the league of movies like Aag, Tashan, Love Story 2050. Drona is rather "rona" for Bollywood. Avoid it totally. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Day : Friday Date: 18 Oct 2008 Time: 9.30 pm With: Noone On : PC If you have to choose between Suicide and Drona...choose Suicide. However the effects were good. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
