Shahrukh Khan was back after almost a year and a half. The last movie movie of him was Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal. It was for the second time when these three superstars are reuniting after Jab Tak Hai Jaan directed by Yash Chopra. It is directed by Aanand L Rai who has delivered some good films such as both the sequels of Tanu weds Manu, Ranjhana and the recent Manmarziyaan. It is for the first time when Aanand L Rai and Shahrukh Khan are reuniting for the big budget film.
Shahrukh Khan is playing a role named Bauua, who is a vertically challenged guy from Meerut. It also stars Anushka Sharma as a differently abled scientist and Katrina Kaif as a bollywood superstar.
It all starts in the home town of Bauua i.e. Meerut . He was a very friendly and well known person of his town. The story revolves from all round right from Meerut to Mumbai and from Aafia (Anushka Sharma), a well known scientist to the glamour world where he meets Babita Kumari (Katrina Kaif).
The first half will not take a smile away from your face. The effort that Shahrukh Khan has done to play the role of Bauua, a short man is marvelous. Later he meets Aafia from a matrimonial site and falls in love with her. And from there the part starts. Then he also enters the world of glitz and glamour where he meets his hearted love Miss Babita Kumari.
The second half could be a short being a love story. The audience feels that the story is unnecessarily stretched to 165 minutes. The story revolves round and round with the cameos of other bollywood actors such as Deepika Padukone, Sridevi and Salman which is very irrevelant to the story and takes around 20 minutes of the film.
Except the second half being so lengthy, the movie shows the best works of the following actors along with the supporting actors such as Abhay Deol, R Madhavan, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sheeba Chaddha, Brijendra Kala, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub. The duo of Ajay-Atul has given a good musical touch to the movie. The VFX that was the main theme to be showcased was evaluated excellently.
The movie has been getting a good support from the entire film industry. Also the SRK fans are loving the film for the work of their superstar. Also Anushka has proved herself by selecting off the beat roles. Katrina also did her role well playing an actress from the Indian origin leaving behind her English slang in her hindi dialogues. Though it has not fitted well in the minds of the critics which witnessed it to get some negative reviews. Though it is a one time watch for the audience, especially for the filmy people and witness what actually Aanand L Rai tried to showcase in his INR 200 crore big bang budget film.
