@Vectus if you know for a fact then all the actors have hammer one way or another in their career. The moment you use history of Hindi cinema then instantly it's a No. has Salman hammed? Yes. Has Srk? Yes. Has Aamir? Hell yes. Same goes for overacting.
Does VD overact? Yes. He goes overboard several times. And that is the reason why in some scenes when he actually acts well even in those Dulhania films, it ends up looking awkward. It's his energy. Not all directors utilize & contain it. David Dhawan toh never did that in both the films.
