The New York Times

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

By Ronnie Scheib
Shetty’s need to maintain his characters’ romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.

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...

good comedy

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

By ronakshah
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....

Chennai Express

Awesome movie. Excellent story, jokes, and action scenes. Rohit Shetty put SRK to test and he got 100 out of 100. Deepika Padukone also did a good job. Their chemistry was very good. I could not...
