The most successful in Bollywood...for a reason!
11 September 2013 | by littlemaster625See all my reviews

This film went on to become the most successful Hindi film ever made!! Why is that? Is it just Shahrukh Khans super-stardom that brought people into the cinemas? Or was it Rohit Shetty's brand of films that got people in? Well, the answer is that it was the right mix of both. These two people have come together for the first time and combined Romance and Comedy in just the right doses with a side dish of a couple of action scenes, and they have hit the jackpot!! The audience has been enthralled and entertained...And that is why it has done the business that it has. Complete family entertainment...Leave your brains and logic at home and don't expect any social messages please. Just relax and enjoy and walk out of the cinema for this one. I know many people have their opinion that it is a masala film and they are right. It is a masala entertainer. But so are most of the successful films in Hindi cinema history with the exception of a handful. I consider this movie a must watch for the simple reason that you shall experience the true slice of Bollywood style in this one. Laugh and cry and be entertained, like the entire country has been...As a dialogue in the movie famously goes "Don't underestimate the power of a common man!" And the common man has spoken! Complete family Bollywood entertainer!
