Bollywood never lags behind to show its colours, during festive days. The two Khans hypnoticed the world with their charm during the previous Christmas season, Shahrukh-sorry-King Khan and Amir- sorry- Mr. Perfectionist Khan.
Amir’s “Gajini” is an action movie, which was a super hit, and Shahrukh’s “Rab Ne Banadi Jodi”, rocked the silver screen literally. “Rab Ne Banadi Jodi” is a peaceful romantic film, when compared to “Gajini”. “Rab Ne Banadi Jodi” is a very cute, romantic film, which celebrates the true love…
The Aditya Chopra directed film tells the story of a middle class working man who accidentally ‘compelled’ to marry a young girl, to whom he was infatuated at the first sight, on her marriage day. Her name is Taani (Anushka Sharma). The protagonist, Surender Sahni, was her father’s former student.
Suri and Taani start their life anew as strangers. There the story takes an interesting turn, where we can see the ordinary working class man tries to win the love of the gorgeous, exuberant girl, Taani. Suri is an introvert man who is unable express his love outwardly. This is somewhat the contrary with Taani’s character.She is a charming energetic youthful character. In a time based, limited, lifestyle of a working class man, he feels himself estranged from Taani.
The film interestingly portrays the dilemma of the working class people to confront the youthful metro sexual urban community. The metro sexual youth generally believes in celebrating life, where the working class men like Suri, identifies themselves as mere machines, which are devoid of all pleasures of life. The only pleasure for them is to serve their beloved ones. He wants to win her love. The resolution, which he finds, is, metamorphosis, or changing form. This metamorphosis that he undertakes is an outward expression of the hidden consciousness of Suri. And he changes himself from Suri to Raj.
The film shows a different background in an idegenous style, which is not usually seen in Bolly-wood in the recent days. Full credits goes to the director. Both the characters of Raj and Suri had their own equal importance in the story. The portrayal of the to characters is really superb!
Shahrukh has done a remarkably wonderful job. But the main gift the film has given to bolly-wood is, Anushka Sharma., whose performance never gives us the feeling that she is a new comer.
