The English sir, the Indian madam
16 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Along with Guddu, English Babu Desi Mem is known to be one of Shahrukh Khan's worst films. It is. The movie starts with a melodramatic sequence which is a kind of a prologue to the entire story. One couple dies upon the birth of their son. The deceased wife's little sister decides to bring this baby up all alone. Right after that it moves several years forward and we are presented with a young Sonali Bendre dancing in a bar. Her nephew Nandu is now 8 years old and she works hard to feed him. But Vikram Mayur, Nandu's paternal uncle, has come to India to take the kid to England, as he is the successor of their dynasty. That's the basic story of this movie, and it just does not work. Maybe it's got to do something with the fact that we expect more from Khan and his movies. Khan himself is pretty good and as expected he has a great chemistry with the leading lady. Sonali Bendre is very pretty and she does a fairly good job as well. The kid is okay. The film's music does not add that much. English Babu Desi Mem has its moments, but they are few and are not enough to make a watchable film. If anything, this one is worthy of a one-time watch and nothing more.
