• The plot looks straight out of the 80s, with its implausible ‘revenge’ theme, the characters who look ‘seedha’ but are totally ‘ulta’, and a leading lady who is presented as a modern, thinking girl, but is given very little agency or a mind of her own.

  • With a lot of high-octane drama movies like Bhoomi and Haseena Parkar, this light-hearted comedy by David Dhawan definitely stands a better chance. The Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu starrer is the perfect dose of candyfloss romance, exotic locales and a colourful canvas.

And for SRK playing SRK. Just don’t pay too much attention to the film.

  • …you cannot get more self-referential than having your hero say ‘yeh dilwala apni dulhaniya le hi jayega’: that’s seriously scraping the barrel.
