This is a reposted review from Juhi Week, so it’s mostly about how great they are as a pair. An excellent reason to review the film!Continue reading
I fastforwarded through this movie to remind myself what it was like, and my goodness the Boring Dude is way more boring than I remembered! Juhi makes terrible romantic decisions.Continue reading
This came up because of a comment in our JHMS discussion yesterday. About how it felt like in some ways the happy ending for “Harry” resolved a lot of unhappy endings for similarly noble Shahrukh lover characters. Which got me thinking about what might be the same and different in how SRK romances play out. So, let’s look at an assortment of romances. 7 at a go, because I want to discuss them in depth and then discuss them cumulatively.
This is just a random idea because I am in the middle of unpacking my Shahrukh DVD box and putting them in chronological order on my shelf. It’s kind of fascinating to look at his career as a case study of how an actor’s career progresses.
Is that his last gangster role? It feels like it is anyway. Not counting Don, where he is more a kind of globalized loner gangster, and less a gritty street fighter gangster. Which is what he plays here. Very very poorly. This is not a good movie.
