Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi – Movie Review

Making the most of holidays, I went to see RNBDJ first day morning show. First the sad part – the storyline which has been doing rounds on the internet is almost correct. So no need to repeat the story line . Here’s the review…

The movie starts out on a slow pace,introducing a simpleton SRK and his wife-by-accident, with bits of subtle humor thrown in. It picks pace once the other dashing,outrageously-over-the-top Punjabi Jat SRK enters(must say SRK looks old in this role too).For the first two hours movie goes on with a few funny & entertaining sequences, some good songs (a nice parody with special appearances from.. no prices for guessing :P) keeping the audience occupied. Then Mr.Director tells the characters in the movie there has to be some serious story also so that all kinds of audience are covered.(After all, this movie has been made to recover all the losses of Yash Raj productions in the last year or so :P). But there is only 45 minutes left of the movie.The characters now don’t know what they are upto and get totally confused about their morality, their common sense etc & consequently the director loses track of his characters and the screenplay goes for a toss for that important half-hour or so. When there is 15 minutes to the movie, the director tells the characters “All of you are good Indian people.So be so. No justification required for anything”. Finally everyone is good and the Rab Da Banaya hua Jodi live happily ever after…

Everyone knew it will be too much to expect Adi Chopra to revive the magic of DDLJ with this movie. Even Mohabbatein had some great sequences ( with SRK & the Big B) . But no magic to be seen here except for a couple of good sequences here and there(Esp check out the brilliant sequence just before the interval). Nothing much to remember the movie by. And even though I am an SRK fan, I can safely say this review is unbiased because the actor has done well to fit into the characters and play them as they are. But one sure misses the usual SRK with all his usual hamming,charisma & theatrics which we expect to see in this kind of a movie.Nothing special about the newcomer Anushka sharma.She just passes muse.

I will say go,watch the movie once and enjoy the good parts. The bad parts are not so bad,so they can be easily forgotten after the movie is over :)
