Good film...
6 October 2003 | by falak11mufcSee all my reviews

To provide the other perspective on the film, it was still a hit. Probably the 1st good hit of Dreamz Unlimited, but definitely not Aziz Mirza's first with Shah Rukh Khan. The film is a feel-good film, that tried to tackle the usual problems of married life, but in a light manner. Yes, at the end of it, you kind of feel cheated, because you feel the problems have not been addressed properly, let alone been solved in the story, but you also leave with the feeling that you've laughed at the stupid jokes for the last 2-3 hrs... You remember Shah Rukh stupidly trying to persuade Rani to accept him, or stupidly trying to butter her up when she is angry after the wedding. And most of all, it's appealing because, as SRK himself says, it's him a role that's not larger than life. It's not superhuman Devdas or Asoka. It's stupid Shah Rukh as we've seen him in down-to-earth films like Raju Ban gaga gentleman, Yes Boss, or even Dilwale dulhanya, kuch kuch, and dil to pagal. It's a character that could be us...
