      Well said! Hope springs eternal!

      As Sumalji also said - Mr Khandelwal is a good actor. No arguments there.

      But does that make him a good Sherlock? I thought his diction was horrible and put upon for a character that is supposed to be a version of Sherlock Holmes - and I'm not even a language nazi.‎ And honestly, I can't see how he is a look-alike of Mr Cumberbatch.

      At least it gives us something to look forward to. Who will volunteer to do a write-up for this for the next e-magazine?

      Hi fellow Holmesians,

      I had actually liked Rajeev in 'Aamir', which released a few years ago. His portrayal of an ordinary man stuck in a dangerous situation was pretty good.

      But going by the trailer, it seems like they've tried to compress Holmes from all the adventure stories and novellas into this 2-2-1/2 hour movie. It's probably meant for those who liked RDJ's two attempts at portraying the Master Detective.

      But, I'd suggest we wait and see before we decide. It might turn out to be a decent movie after all :D

      I am also angry with the write-up, which equates Bollywood to Indian cinema.
