shahrukh Bola Khubsoorat hai Tu Hindi Movie Review:
The film explores the effect of movies and superstars on the life of small-timers who form the hardcore fan base of larger-than-life actors. Young Lali (Pritika Chawla) may be an ordinary flower seller, but her life changes when superstar Shah Rukh Khan stops at a traffic signal one day and tells her she’s pretty. Overcome by self-importance, she turns her back to her old flame, John and begins to lead her life in a fantasy where she believes super-god Shah Rukh will save her from all her travails.
The cast comprises of new faces largely and each of them delivers pure, unadulterated performances. Especially the actress who enacts the role of the hooker. Preetika Chawla has the makings of a fine actress. Nagesh Bhosale and Makrand Deshpande, both well-experienced actors, are efficient. SRK makes a brief appearance in the film.
Technical and Other Departments:
Amongst the plusses, Makarand succeeds in giving the film a realistic look, which must’ve been tough since the film has been shot at actual locations. The music is functional, although I’d like to single out the Jagjit Singh track, which is soothing and easy on the ears.
This one’s a small, experimental film that delves into the psyche of the archetypal Bollywood fan who transmutes the object of his devotion — a movie star — into a demi-god. A smart little fable that kinda explains why Indians erect temples for their favourite stars or write fan mail to them in blood.
Set against a crumbling bustee in Mumbai, the film revolves around a traffic signal where a bunch of small-timers live and love. And against this colourful backdrop of fringe folks, Shah Rukh Khan (in a special appearance) accidentally unleashes a Devdas-ish folklore, where book-seller John (Sanjay) pines for his own Paro (Pritika) who has eyes only for her DDLJ hero SRK, while the friendly neighbourhood hooker (Choyoti) doubles up as the local Chandramukhi and tries her best to seduce the reluctant Romeo.
Makarand Deshpande has already made his name in theatre and has almost always pitched in an arresting cameo in his screen avtar. With Shah Rukh Bola…he makes an interesting debut as a film director and holds out promise for the future. The film does have a few rough edges and needs a bit of editing. But it exudes a sense of novelty that keeps the moments ticking. Its not a too bad film.
