The plot is simple - by a strange twist of fate, SRK ends up in the house of a gunda in south india. He is supposedly in love with his daughter who is looking for ways to escape a marriage fixed against her wishes. He gets consistently beaten up, ridiculed and is such a big coward that as ridiculous as the situation might be, it doesn't become a hero giri and the movie moves towards the expected ending. The songs are hummable and i have been conditioned by the radio channels to fall in love with a couple. (though i doubt if i can ever accept him doing a lungi dance let alone listen to that.)
Shahrukh Khan was one of those heroes i loved as a kid. I grew up and did not find anyone else to fill his shoes - so though his movies did not become better with time, i continued to have a very soft corner for him. When i saw the trailer, i hated the movie. Being a South Indian, some of the scenes and Deepika's hindi just put me off. Still, i could not avoid SRK and i knew i would watch it just like how i sat through Jab tak hai jaan and a few others.On a lovely evening, I went into the theater and i was strangely delighted!! The movie began and maintained the pace so well until it plummeted to horrible depths in the last 30 minutes. SRK was awesome with his comic timing but Deepika was the best part of the movie. She was lovely, comic, irritating, annoying and lovable all at the same time. She has improved by leaps and bounds over time and man, i am going to add her to the list of actors whose movies i dont miss.
A good watch if it were not for the last 20-30 mins but yeah, Rohit Shetty had to end the movie one way or the other. The comic timing, the horrible tamil accent & stereotypes(which makes me laugh at the movie) and of course the lead pair make the movie pretty watchable. Atleast once.
