Bauua Singh is infatuated with the Bollywood actress Babita Kumari, who is an alcoholic. Although Bauua is passionate about things he does, his height disturbs him at times. He falls for Aafia, a scientist in NASA, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. As both have something in common as a physical challenge, they share a good bonding. In a particular stage, Bauua’s favorite heroine Babita enters into his life. What happens next? Did Bauua get the opportunity to settle with his favorite star? Whom did he marry? Watch the film in theaters.
Shah Rukh is excellent as usual. Katrina and Anushka had done their job, as directed.
Aanand L Rai has chosen a different script to project Shah Rukh Khan in the lead. The characterization is okayish but certain details are missing. Either it is Bauua or Aafia, they are much confident, although they have some physical disabilities and that is the best part of the film. The film has a lot of perceptions, but the director hadn’t come with a complete film that describes all his perceptions in the story. Starting in Meerut, we are taken to Mars alongside the leads. However, some scenes didn’t impress us. Being a NASA scientist, some attitude of Aafia doesn’t satisfy the audiences. Some comedy sequence and a song worked out well. With the high budget, the VFX works are impressive.
What’s Not There?
With Shah Rukh and the biggie stars crew, the film might impress with the oneliner. But, it fails to satisfy the audiences to the fullest, as there are lots of loopholes in the script. If you are an ardent SRK, you might like it!
