The viewer must remember this film is 10 years old, and at times may seem a bit dated, but it does not distract too much. At times, one must suspend disbelief and allow yourself to be taking on the journey.
Shah Rukh Khan is very watchable in this film, as always; other than the over the top acting in regard to a medical condition...won't say what. :oP
As long as you can allow yourself to be carried along the journey this film takes, and over look the over the top scenes that do occur with increasing frequency toward the end, you will enjoy it. And the ending is very sweet in its attempt to teach us all a small, but ultimately important lesson.
