I just wrote a truly brilliant post (here), one of those rare amazing ones, and now my brain is dead. So I will offer up a brain dead post as filler, and return to my beloved SRK.
Here is my definition of Shahrukh Film Eras:
Shahrukh the Young Try Anything Actor
Deewangee to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Shahrukh the King Settled in his Stardom
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Paheli
Shahrukh the Artist Looking for Challenges
Paheli to Zero
Which is your favorite era? Do you agree with my eras? Do you agree with my era break points?
For me, I think favorite might be the “King” era. There’s something so soft and confident and soothing about the early 2000s/late 90s films. The other eras are more creatively complex and varied, but they don’t have the joy of Kal Ho Na Ho or K3G or Main Hoon Na.
