Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
Then, the banner under the guidance of Aditya Chopra made 'Mohabattein' with Shah Rukh, Aishwarya Rai and Amitabh Bachchan.
This time, Aditya Chopra comes back after some eight years with his favorite Shah Rukh along with a new face Anushka Sharma. It is said that Yash Chopra himself asked his son Aditya to make one movie in the wake of several of their flicks touching a low graph.
The USP of the movie is that in one song it salutes the super stars of yesteryears. Believe it that all SRK's co-stars like Kajol, Preity Zinta and Rani Mukherjee, obliged him.
The movie is a love story but quite different in other ways. First, it's shot in India unlike others in London or Switzerland. Its lead couple faces no opposition from their families. Besides, they wear simple clothes unlike in Aditya's earlier movies.
She is flamboyant and vivacious. But both fall a prey to circumstances and come together. However, Surinder changes into Raj by undergoing a personality change. This is a flaw ; how come Anushka didn't find out that it's her husband? click for larger view
The movie runs longer than needed and that too when the audience looks for shorter duration. The music by Salim-Sulaiman is good at places. Haule Haule is an excellent composition and Dance Pe Chance is good for foot tapping. However, the other tracks are average. Ravi Chandran's cinematography is perfect. click for larger view
Luckily, there is no competitor in the field as it's the only release. The fate of the film, according to the actor, is in the hands of God. "Aditya and I feel that God has made this film. We think rab will take care of it and the people who go to watch it. We just want them to smile in this time of depression."
Most of his fans say, "Shah Rukh definitely looks good without a moustache. He looks so good when he is clean-shaven." However, his producer Chopra considers moustaches and looks a very secondary consideration in judging an actor's capability.
Bollywood has seen a drastic fall in number of people visiting theatres post terror attacks. With relations between India and Pakistan on the new low post Mumbai terror attacks, the release of Shah Rukh Khan's much awaited 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' has been postponed in the neighboring country.
"'Rab Ne Bana De Jodi' is not releasing in Pakistan as the production house has decided that it is not appropriate time to release the film there," the Yash Raj Films official adds, "The final decision to release the film would be decided in due course of time. Shah Rukh Khan is very popular in Pakistan and this move to postpone the release will definitely hit our business," the source further adds.
