One fine evening,two friends chatting and relaxing with a glass of wine in their hands.One of them is a hairstylist and the conversation takes place in his saloon.
"Dude!I got something to say.But tell me that  you won't  say that  to anyone else.TOP SECRET",says one.
The other says, "Not  until i die.I wouldn't tell anyone.Go ahead."
"Ok!(with a wry gentle smile).Love has happened in my life.I'm in love with a girl(Blushing)".
"Wow!!..That is fantastic man.Wonderful.Congratulations.Who is that lucky girl buddy?".
"I'm in love With my...my... wife!(With little feelings..)I love her(Rascal enna da peelings.. :p)But sadly she doesn't love me".
"How come??..She has to love you.If she doesn't ,just give her couple of slaps man...",suggests the other friend.
Sounds very strange and stupid.Yes,it is.This is one of the scene from "Rab ne bana di jodi" movie.The story and the logic  might be Hilarius and illogical if you see from the outset .But when i saw, it was really entertaining and enjoyable coz of the fact that it was well presented and well made.I kinda liked some scenes frame by frame.

Surinder shani (Shah Rukh) is a very introverted,soft and silent guy(To the extent that he can not say his love to his wife..C'mmon man,,this is bit too much.. :P)..He works in Punjab power as a clerk.Movie opens up with the marriage ceremony of Thani(Anushka sharma) who is the daughter of Shah Rukh's professor.Earlier the professor starts the marriage talk for tying the nuptial bond between Anushka and Shah Rukh.But he could not since Anushka brushes away this talks by revealing that she  is  in love with some one else.And now Anushka is getting married to the guy she wants. Shah Rukh is invited for the marriage and he sees her, he falls in love at first sight with her.But what to do?.She is gonna be someone's wife in few hours.

Call it fortune or fate Anushka's marriage stops.Fate brings a big twist in the lives of both hero and heroine. The bride groom and his family dies in an accident when arriving to the marriage hall. Anushka's father also suffers cardiac arrest due to this shocking news.In his death bed he asks Shah Rukh to marry Anushka and convinces Anushka for the same.He dies eventually and after that marriage takes place.Anushka is in a awful mindset since in a span of  couple of days everything changed.So for the initial few days she shuts herself in a room and doesn't even talk to SRK.


After few days she realizes that its not fair to show her frustration on SRK and she apologizes for the way she behaved and adds that there is no more love left in her to share with anyone.But poor SRK's love towards her wife grows everyday..Since he is so smitten by Anushka he thinks of the ways in which he can impress her.(the things which he does and the way he sights his wife is so funny..He he.. ).When things were like this Anushka who feels bored staying in home seeks SRK's permission to join a dance class called Dancing Jodi no.1.(OMG... Ingayuma da...)

The  conversation at the start of this post takes place in such a situation.SRK and his friend think that Anushka is not interested in Shah Rukh coz of his Goody-Goody old bear like looks.So the barber friend vows Shah Rukh to give a complete make over.He turns him into a ultramodern guy.After changing the looks he goes to meet Anushka in the dance class and she doesn't recognize him(this is bit cinematic..How come a wife could not identify her husband.Is SRK's barber friend from hollywood to change him completely).SRK uses this edge and joins the dance class pretending that he is someone else(Raj) and tries to win her love.


He says to his friend that he will try to impress her and it will be a Win-Win situation whoever wins(Be it Surinder or Raj).He starts this playfully and as time goes Anushka falls in love with Raj.At one point of time Suinder feels like a loser when he knows that Anushka gets inclined towards Raj.Finally what happens at the end and who was chosen by Anushka,either the boring Surinder or the flirting Raj and whether they win the Jodi No.1 contest or not  forms the rest of the story.

If you just see the story its completely stupid there are many logical loopholes but one thing makes the story all the more interesting and awesome.That is SRK's acting.His intense sentimental  and touching acting as Surinder stands out.The scene in which he talks alone in his friend's  saloon where he challenges the doll(considering him as Raj and the doll as Surinder) that he will make Anushka fall in love with her and at the end where he expresses his desire that he would be the happiest man on earth if he can impress her being the calm and not so entertaining Surinder is one pointer to his good enough performance.The director and the screenplay writer deserve a big pat for this screen writing.

The other portrayal as Raj is good too.His pranks in the dance class and a bit of double meaning dialogues and his mannerisms(the way he  adjusts his pant) are quite comical.But  a bit of overacting can be sensed(But that is OK..It is not so annoying).The parts in which he says sentimental things between his stupid funny pranks proves essential for the film.(It helps him picking up her rite?.So shld b important :P).This role  shows SRK's ability to easily transform to any character with ease.Anushka never looks like a debutant.Anushka's part in which she suffers to make a decision between Surinder and Raj(both SRK) shows that she has some acting ability. She has done he part really well.SRK's friend  also deserves a appreciation.He has done  more than what is expected of him.

Climax of the movie is bit of a surprise.(few said that it was too good but i felt it was somewhat cinematic).Music of the film is good with some good decent number and  the background score too is just good enough.A small bit towards the end 'Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai' sung by Sherya Goshal is truly among the high degree of good music.( loved it a lot).The first half an hour of the movie resembles somewhat like Mani Ratnam's Mouna Ragam.(but this is not so intense  like that).Over all this is truly a good movie to watch according to me.Check it out if possible.

There are a hell lot of things in this world which are completely mysterious and enigmatic.You can never say the reason or logic behind certain things.Have you ever come across a situation in which  you  knew for sure that something is very good but which has been termed or made a debacle by others.Ever scratched and shrinked your head to find the possible reason,which in no way exist according to you, over such matters?.I confronted such a scenario when i watched this movie sometime back.Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi did not create the "Rab"(magic) in the box office was the verdict when movie got released.So i did not watch the movie.But after 6 or 8 months down the line one of my friend said that the movie is worth watching and it was good.So i just got the DVD and checked it out.And after seeing i had to say it was really awesome movie in all possible aspects(I really can't see the reason why it did not do well).I thought it deserved a small appreciation from and thats why i wrote this?.More over i don't wanna write about anything else since i guess the way in which i would write with this mindset will please anyone no matter what i write.
