Our Rating: 9/10
This film is really a rare piece to see in the Bollywood genre. The filmography is crisp and colorfully shot. Giving the viewer another idea of what India can be. It’s a refreshing new film style for Shahruhk, it’s not just another tragically predictable Bollywood film, its got comedy, its got love, its got bits of good tragedy and sincerity, overall the film is well rounded and thought out. This is Anushka’s breakout film. I think it’s easy to see that her films give off a certain feeling and flavor that can get overwhelming and hard to watch, but when it’s Anushka, Srk and Vinak, magic happens, a sad love-comedy that is enjoyable is born.
if you’re an individual who dislikes Traditional Bollywood films, this is one you’ve gotta see, it’s refreshing and fun, while exciting. the characters will draw you and take you on an unexpected journey, while the soundtrack will keep ou jammin’ for years to come.
In my opinion, this is hands down one of my new modern favorites,the characters, plot and music all fit together beautifully, that the film feels like a dream to watch, I strongly rccomend this one.
