The movie chugs along for most of its 2 hours and 20 minutes searching for comedy and characters in a frantically overplotted story.

Classic SRK masala movie

By racquet21
If you love SRK, his cheesy dance moves, his silly jokes, and the quintessential 'Rahul' personality, this is your movie. If not that, go for the gorgeous cinematography- I forgot India is such a...

A good one time watch.

Typical Rohit shetty movie but good amount of humor, scenic beauty and Message for the masses of course !!! Total family entertainer.. Kids loved it and so did parents and spouse.....

Light comedy - can watch with family

By nayanishhinge
Shah rukh khaan not acting as himself for a change. Deepika fits in the role nicely. Her typical tamil accent is flawless. Nowhere she seems like overacting. The story takes fairly unpredictable turn...

a must go movie that compelled me to spend time enjoying culture clash.

Shahrukh Khan allures the south India audience. No stones unturned to make it big. Srk puts himself in humbled situation and gives chance to the costar actress to show guts to run the story forward....

One of SRK's worst

Loved it!

We drove 2.5 hours to see it, and saw it twice. The scenery and photography is amazing, the music is great and SRK is fantastic...at his comedic best. Deepika is great too. GO!...

Do not waste your time and money

By kirtimandal
Lets us start with 1) Story - Rotten & overplotted 2)Acting Deepika - Full on along with putting an accent. She pulled off the movie. Shahrukh - example of ridiculousness. He has lost it! I am...

Kichidi

I felt as if I was watching snippets from old movies. Copied lot of stuff from Telugu and Tamil movies. Deepika as usual looks great. SRK is so so. Two and half hours waste of time....
