King Khan is back.. This time in typical Rohit Shetty Ishtyle. Shahrukh has been having a lean patch after RAB NE BANA DE JODI. Hopefully it all ends here. But I have my apprehensions on the same.
The trailer focuses on the chemistry between Shahrukh and Deepika Padukone and also tries to portray King Khan in an action avatar. I just hope in it works. I just hope.
Shahrukh appears a bit jaded. And his age is beginning to show unlike the other Khans who still defy age. The childish charm that was Shahrukh’s trademark seems to be missing.
Deepika plays a Tamil girl in the movie with an over the top South Indian accent. Why do Bollywood directors show South Indians as exaggerated caricatures. We saw it in RA ONE and we see it again in CHENNAI EXPRESS.
The trailer has it’s pluses though. It is quite refreshing to hear SPB’s voice again singing the title track. The versatile Sathyraj and the chemistry between the leads.
With ONCE UPON A TIME in MUMBAI sequel also releasing around the same time. Expect this to be a two horse race. May the best win.
Hopefully this is not another mindless ROHIT SHETTY FEST. Hopefully!
