We were lost for words as we stepped out of a screening of 'Tarbosaurus - Dinosaur vs Dinosaur', but maybe this picture can help describe in part how we felt -

Yes dear readers, our minds were just as violated as the dinosaur being mounted in this picture as we watched this movie. And if this confession isn't warning enough, read on...
What's it about?
Speckles, the tarbosaurus, is only a year old when his mother, brother and twin sisters are killed by a vicious, red monster called One-Eye. The orphan is now forced to fend for himself and finds a mate in another lonesome lizard, Blue-Eyes. Unfortunately they can't seem to shake One-Eye off their tails and Speckles must eventually find it in himself to conquer his fear and take on his foe.
To begin, if you're going to pick a dinosaur you want viewers to empathize with, why not cast a loveable sauropod or a stegosaurus in the lead? The flesh-eating Asian cousin of the Tyrannosaurus Rex isn't going to win too many hearts, even if you decide to give him a few spots on his snout and call him Speckles. The movie might just entertain your children, but only if they're in fourth grade, or are younger. Take a child who's older and they'll soon be plotting to murder you while you sleep. The animation is a major disappointment, making us want to take back every mean thing we said about 'Ra.One'. Even the dinosaurs aren't impressive. Speckles' arch nemesis looks like Barney before hair and makeup (see below) and even the velociraptors look silly with some sort of a funky pouffe on their heads.
Oh, the wonders of makeup!
What to do?
A Godzilla or Jurassic Park, this is not. Adults seeking prehistoric thrills had better stay away from this dino disaster. Spend good money watching this tripe and you'll be regretting it for the rest of the year.

"You remind me of Shabana Azmi," guffaws our don't-give-a-damn hero to the social activist heroine. In the first-half they clash over idlis, ideologies and idle chatter. Mismatched as they are, and we are reminded twice that she is older, Kareena Kapoor-Khan and Imran Khan trudge along cutely till mid-point after which the narrative shuffles noisily into a village in Gujarat where it all falls apart.
"Last Vegas" is a funny, heartwarming and a touching buddy film about ageing and male bonding whose premise is so very much like the 2009 released film "The Hangover". But unlike in "The Hangover", these four buddies are geriatrics who jam up after 58 years of separation.
