STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –
1) Great music – all credits to Anand Bakshi and Uttam Singh.
2) One woman show – Madhuri completely overshadowed Shah Rukh Khan – rest all actors are all over the place.

 
Cons –
1) A Yash Raj Fantasy world of larger than life celestial love and product placement.
2) Epic length, weak screenplay, forgettable dialogues
3) Shallow characters. Who is SRK playing in this film? No backstory. His dimwit sidekicks are more annoying than the screenplay.

“Kabhi kabhi hume lagta hai ki zindagi mein kisi goal ko paane ke liye hame mushkil raasta chunna padta hai, and that we should punish ourselves. Lekin kyun? Easy rasta kyun nahi chun sakte? Jabki easy rasta easy hota hai”
