First thing, I am gonna talk about myself very honestly.. I am a movie addict and a big fan of Shah Rukh Khan. I truly don't see a greater star than him in the Bollywood industry (though some International magazines state he is the biggest star in the globe. - I disagree with that.). As I already said, I am a movie buff (I watch both Hollywood & Bollywood movies), I have seen almost all the movies this year that has been well received by critics, and I must say, this movie is the best at comedy and action. It can compared to some Hollywood biggies like Hot Fuzz or The World's End.
Now let's talk about the various aspects of the movie.
Plot: The plot goes like this... a 40-year-old Punjabi man is on a mission to immerse his grandfather's ashes down South. Enroute he meets a young Tamilian girl who has eloped. Their lives entwine and his journey takes an altogether different route. In reality, the is plot is as adventurous as you find reading it, but the humor is even greater. And the plot take (with a few plot holes I have to say) many dramatic turns towards the end. Though some are likely to make you think "Why?". Of course, it being a Rohit Shetty film, expect some illogical humor that still manages to crack up the audiences in laughter.
Direction: Rohit Shetty, well, I am not a fan, but I must admit... he does well. At least better than his previous movies. I found no glitches in the direction. Superb work by him and his team.
Cast Performances: First & foremost, lets talk about the man under the spotlight, Shah Rukh Khan, who leads the cast. Man, he rocks. I salute this guy. The definition of acting may have been written by someone else but he (Shah Rukh Khan) defines it. The most important thing about him (and what makes him the greatest star in Bollywood) is that he knows what he has to do and how to do it. He does everything with perfection. Rohit Shetty once mentioned this in an interview, and right he is. Deepika Padukone is even better and more vivid and honest essaying her role. Her accent in the movie is so funny. Will crack you up time to time. Nikitin Dheer had a considerably small role to play. But even still, he was awesome. He was perfect for the role. A good future he has in front of him (no sarcasm intended)...
Music/Songs: Songs are just above average. I, honestly, didn't find anything special in the music.
Editing/Camera Work/Choreography & Other Aspects: Brilliant.
10/10 just for awesome acting and direction.
