What? No Arjun Rampal?
Sorry, no. But you get Shah Rukh Khan and he is pretty darn awesome.
This movie was two, two movies in one. The first half is the absolute silliest most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in a while. It’s 10 years or so before the main story and everyone is in college and they’re wearing these WTF outfits and acting like they’re in Welcome Back Kotter, I swear to God. There’s a whole trainwreck sub-plot theme that suggests it’s just fine to harass women — they like it! It makes them hot!
Oh Lord, I wasn’t sure I could survive it other than the whole rubber necking thing. But the singing and dancing was GREAT and that helped a lot. Plus SRK is smoking hot.
Anyway, Rahul (SRK) is best buds with Anjali, this girl in college — really truly best buds, only she realizes she’s in love with him and he does not get it even a bit. Instead he falls for this hot babe and they get married and are happy and have a daughter while Anjali leaves and, we presume, goes on with her lonely life . . .
Back to the Future
Rahul’s wife has died and his 8 year old daughter, also named Anjali (NOT a coincidence!) through letters left by her mother now has the task of finding his best college buddy Anjali. At this point, the movie turns amazing. It’s really good, if a bit contrived but who cares! Rahul and Anjali have astonishing chemistry and did I mention SRK is smoking hot? It’s just so sweet and she almost marries the wrong man and and wow.
The Take Away
The power of the performances and the romance in the 2nd half of this movie completely make up for the ridiculous beginning.
My vote for best caress ever in a movie. If you love romance in movies, this scene is amazingly hot and sexy.
