The Cinema Station's Rating: Unreserved Journey from Jaisalmer to Delhi (1.5/5) The 1975 emergency background, the reunion of Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi with the stealthy presence of Illeana D'Cruz and Sanjay Mishra and a versatile director like Milan Luthria at the helm of things, Baadshaho's trailer left a decent impression on me.
