Bollywood Bliss
4 August 2004 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

All those who are sick and tired of the tepid Nora Ephron type of ‘romantic comedies' that Hollywood keeps churning out, need to see Raja Hindustani. This is a movie not afraid of great feelings and great gestures, a movie not about love and romance, but about Love and Romance.

Objectively speaking it may be full of flaws, from the clumsy directing to the nauseating overacting of the comic-relief characters, but the romance between Raja (Aamir Khan) and Aarti (Karisma Kapoor, Raj's grand-daughter) engrossed me in a way few other cinematic romances ever have and while the movie concludes with what must be the corniest scene imaginable, I must confess I was moved. It may be a bad film, but it's one hell of a great movie.

***1/2
