BMR: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

Backing up, I bought the soundtrack for this film two months ago and have been listening to it pretty consistently since then. So when I went to the video store and discovered that it had not been released yet (and that I had declined to see it in theaters, favoring Gajini instead, because I didn’t think I’d like a funny romantic comedy) I was a little dismayed. Every time I went to re-stock on dal or ghee or Hula Hoops I’d look in the case and see if it had come out.

This weekend I reached a personal cooking milestone. I ran out of ghee. This is a pretty amazing thing for me, because it means that I have cooked enough dal that I needed more. I needed more! I fear I will never be able to adequately share my pride and amazement at having done this. Oh, well.

Anyway, I did my usual fly-by of the movie case and lo and behold, there it was, in all its lenticular glory. No, really. It has an action cover. It’s very exciting. I called the ChickenGoddess and plans were made for a group viewing.

Last night, the movie was watched by us and our very patient husbands. It did not disappoint. There was slapstick comedy. There was drama. There was a seemingly neverending supply of horrible t-shirts. There were other costume changes, plus a giant top hat. There was that thing SRK seems to like to do lately, which is to invite absolutely everyone to make a guest appearance. Boring point in the film? How about if we have a cameo by Kajol? And Rani Mukherjee! And Preity Zinta! And you get the idea.

Also, I have discovered something else in common with all of SRK’s films – the wet scene. How in the world does he manage to have at least one scene in each of his films that involves him getting soaking wet? Is this fan service? Does he just enjoy it a lot? I can’t figure it out.

The movie was a lot of fun, though. I really enjoyed Suri. He was so awkward and charming.

The CG was irritated at him most of the time, which I can see – he didn’t do or say the things he needed to in order to avoid frustration and heartbreak – but it was bearable. His weird hairdresser friend was awesome. All in all, I feel like it was a well-spent two hours and forty minutes. All in all, I give it a 6.5. I dunno if I’d buy it, but I’d probably watch it again.

And I’ll still listen to the soundtrack.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
