Shahrukh Birthday Countdown! Every SRK Movie Reviewed, In Order

I am excited about this plan! Partly because I have reviewed almost all of them already so this will be very little work. But also because, Shahrukh! Happiness!

Starting today with Deewana, I will post a review of a Shahrukh movie every day until his birthday. I have not yet decided if I will include Luck By Chance/Saathiya/Shakti etc. And there aren’t enough days left even if I just do starring roles, so I will be doubling up some.

I encourage you all to take this as a challenge! Watch every SRK movie in order with me, or at least watch the few you may have missed. Or read the descriptions and watch the ones that look interesting before it is time for me to post them. The filmography is right here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shah_Rukh_Khan_filmography

I hope this is as exciting for you as it is for me!!!!

    • I have a friend who was very disappointed her daughter was born February 11. Just a few more hours and it would have been Lincoln’s birthday. Oh well.

  1. I’m very excited about this. Life is a bit hectic, but otherwise it would be so much fun to watch all his movies again! But I’ll at least try to finish the ones I haven’t. I know there is one I can’t seem to find anywhere, but only one.

    • I am excited about this too! Except I just realized that today’s movie (Chamatkar) is one I haven’t reviewed yet. I didn’t even get two days in a row of being lazy!

  2. Fun! And now a random observation that I’m going to stick here because I’ll never remember by the time you get to either of these movies. Rewatching RNBDJ, which I always liked but has grown on me over time, so many great acting moments in the midst of this over the top character and plot. (Also fascinating to me when they give us a version of dreamy SRK, which Raj almost is except for the ridiculous wardrobe and the over the topness of him, but then Adi must have known SRK can be dreamy and by moments heartbreakingly sincere even in ridiculous clothes and wacky plots since that’s a good part of his 90s repertoire.) Anyway…there’s a moment after the sumo fight where Anushka is tending to his head and they’re almost in the exact same positions and situation as in JHMS after the kidnapping and before the steamy bedroom scene. Both moments are kind of emotional crux scenes, and both lead to an incremental make up that doesn’t really solve anything the next morning, but the affect is completely different and they are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of sexual tension. Part of it is obviously Suri the character vs. Harry the character, but also made me realize wow, Anushka’s acting got a lot better over time. In RNBDJ she doesn’t quite know how to use her body yet.

    • That is fascinating! I would add that a similar posture (Shahrukh on a chair, woman hovering around him) was in JTHJ with Kat. It must be something Shahrukh likes as part of a love scene and suggests to directors? It’s very different, and very effective, putting him in the role of the passive one being cared for while the woman is the powerful one caring for him.
