After receiving poor reviews globally and a dismal performance at the US box office, Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut Baywatch finally opened in India today. And it looks like the actor’s fans are happy about her performance alongside Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock and Zac Efron. The initial audience reactions for the film and Priyanka’s performance are positive, contrary to the critics’ reviews that has poured in so far.

A group of young guys, who turned up for the first show, were all praise for Priyanka and Dwayne The Rock Johnson. “The movie was really nice and we loved Dwayne Johnson. He was the best. It was good to see Priyanka with the Hollywood cast. She acted well,” said one of them. Seems like the plot of the film didn’t make them cringe as much as it did the critics!

A young woman, who watched the movie because she is a Baywatch series fan, told us, “The film is a lot of fun, you can’t really expect too much out of the film. I loved it when Pamela Anderson came, she is totally heart, and so is Priyanka, she is looking great.” Isn’t this what a slapstick comedy is all about? A no-brainer entertainment for 120 minutes.

While everyone was impressed with the leading lady and how she has made it to Hollywood, a young guy was particularly impressed by the film’s visual effects. “The film was different and fresh. The special effects was superb unlike what we see in our Bollywood films.”

Another group of young men also had nice things to say about the film but there was something about Priyanka which perhaps put them off. “We liked the movie. Priyanka looked hot but she also looked a little fake.”

When it comes to Priyanka Chopra doing an international film, it is impossible to not compare her with Deepika Padukone, who starred in xXx: Return Of The Xander Cage. A few people also spoke about how Deepika didn’t own the film (xXx), but Priyanka comes out as a winner with Baywatch. One person said, “Deepika didn’t look too powerful in xXx, but Priyanka kills it, and is definitely a highlight of the film. Loved her comic timing.”

So, while it may look like Priyanka earned more prominence through her Hollywood vehicle than what Deepika did, we will have to wait to see if Baywatch beats xXx in collections as well. So far, the movie seems to have trouble in the US.

      Priyanka chopra or may other actor(irfaan khan) will do anything to get any hollywood movie no matter if they will be given a role of a statue.Pity on them. Priyanka is among worst actors we have and she made fool of them by doing their films or tv-series.

            Of course. All De's Bollywood actresses are filthy. Not sure why they try diet stunts abroad. Chopra Rai and Padokone look horrible . The only thing dey do is showing of and putting accent. The worst is aishwarya rai . She's really disgusting

                Ms Chopra is a disaster and she would do well to stop her Hollywood forays and get back to Bollywood where she's tolerable.

                    I agree totally with the above comment except that she is not tolerable even in India. She does not know acting fundamentals.

                      and it came from somebody who knows everything about acting but perhaps never got a chance to act in movies,right? keep commenting as you are only good at one thing which is commenting.
