Why 'Rab ne bana di jodi...' shouldn't disappoint you

The minute I saw the promos of RNBDJ (hate such acronyms!), I wondered What is Shah Rukh doing here? It's strange to see him play a role like Suri and the movie itself is a return to the common man...something we don't even get to see on TV serials today. And that's why, I think , one should not be disappointed with this movie.

Sure, being a Bollywood movie Rab Ne... has it's larger-than-life elements, but the movie doesn't make a show of a middle class India that generally isn't. Based in a small town in Punjab, the movie about Surender Kapoor aka Suri who doesn't look like a dude, is happy with his government job and doesn't have many interests. Suddenly, he finds himself wed to a beautiful, bubbly girl who literally transforms him into somebody else.

Therefore, don't go to this movie expecting a fairytale, predictable romance or an adventure. Just sit back and immerse yourself in a world where aspirations are really not so out of reach and there is happiness in the little things in life.

Hi Tarana,

Hum... Coming from you, such a comment means the movie is definately worth seeing! Finding "happiness in the little things in life" as you put it is indeed a pleasant enterprise.
(I'll have t try and lay my hands on the movie now...)

Hi Tarana,

I have been dropping by your blog since the time I discovered it while looking for reviews on the theatre production of 'City of Djinns' :) First time I am commenting though!

Regarding Rab..., I used to be a huge Yash Raj fan until 'Veer Zaara' which somehow really disappointed me - haven't seen 'Rab' yet but let's hope it redeems a bit of my faith! It's definitely a refreshing change to see SRK to be so un-SRK in his Suri avatar.

Tell me what you think about this post!
