Director: Maneesh Sharma
Actors: Shah Rukh Khan, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Sayani Gupta
Rating: 2.5 / 5
The plot starts very smoothly and throws good vibes right away. Although movie intentions aren’t clear at the end of first half, the development for the second half was already in place. The cinematography is often smarter than what movie actually is. This creates a little conflict in the minds, that adds to the already created conflict that how come SRK has selected such a movie after so many years. Movie defies logic at various places, that suppresses the appreciation that it deserves.
Director Maneesh Sharma continuous his great direction skills in this venture as well. Although I’ve liked his earlier movies more, like Band Bajaa Baraat, but if only direction is considered, this one is certainly at par.
Shahrukh Khan has performed the Fan role amazingly. After so many years, there’s something positive that was seen. At least this performance has removed the scariness I get when I enter the movie hall to see an SRK movie. It’s certainly a refreshing change that everyone wanted, no matter a Fan or not.
Overall, a nicely directed movie that still keeps me confused if it’s an SRK film.
