Shah Rukh Khan delivers the emotions in just 2 minutes which the whole movie didn't able to deliver in 2 hours
28 October 2016 | by useinstagramSee all my reviews

Watch this movie only for that 2 minutes in which Shah Rukh Khan comes to screen and mouths the dialogue " the power of unrequited love " (main promo dialogue) " believe me he perfectly emotes the pain of one sided love and emptiness you feel when you knew that somebody will never love you and instead of that you have to love him/her because you can't do anything else. And one more line that SRK says that stands out that " I don't even need him/her to love him/her " i:e - I don't even need X to love X . This movie is cliché and Karan Johar didn't offer anything new , all the things in this particular movie is million times seen and repetitive. Ranbir is alright , Aishwarya does justice to her character and Anushka is over the top and annoying you can't feel the attachment to her character. Her love and longing with Ali is so weak that it almost felt irrelevant . Supporting cast is minimal and leading actors didn't provide anything to hold onto once movie ends. Music is indeed good and all the credit goes to Composer , lyricist , and singers .

Go watch SHAH RUKH KHAN doing what he does best "Romance" whether it's Mushy or Heartbreaking : even it is there only for a two minutes.
