Hichki Review (No SPOILERS): A Very Safe Movie

I’ll be putting up a separate SPOILERS review, but there really isn’t much to worry about spoiling.  We’ve all seen this kind of movie before, we know what it’s going to be like and what will happen.  So, you can read this review, and then see the movie, and then read the SPOILERS review, or you can just read them both and then decide if you want to watch it.
