Priyanka Chopra in What's Your Raashee?

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's new movie "What's Your Raashee?"comes out today and the critics seem to like it except for one thing.
It's three and a half hours long.

In the film Priyanka gets a role that would make Jim Carrey or Eddie Murphy proud, she gets to play twelve different characters.

The film is a romantic comedy (the first) from director Ashutosh Gowariker.
He also directed the award winning films Lagaan, Swades and Jodhaa Akbar.
But to maintain interest for over three hours is quite a feat as a lot of directors have found out the hard way.

The films plot is a Chicagoan (Harman Baweja) returns home to Mumbai and has ten days to find a wife and get his Grandfather's inheritance.
He interviews twelve women (all played by Priyanka) each with a different astrological sign (raashee) and each with their own unique personality which gives Priyanka time to show off her acting abilities.

I understand the length of the movie.
Cutting it down to say 2 hours would have lost a lot of story.
Ashutosh couldn't very well have taken the film and pulled a Quentin Tarantino making "What's Your Raashee" Part 1 and Part 2 ala "Kill Bill".
So I think the movie had to pretty much be made the way it was.

Now, will the audiences feel the same way?
