I think it's fair to say that Farhan Akhtar is one of the most visually gifted filmmakers in Bollywood. This is my first complete rewatch of this movie in nearly 12 years, I think? And even now I was surprised at how much of it stuck with me purely on the basis of certain visuals and how integral scenes played out.
Sure, the plot is all over the place, and it could use some cutting down, but this is one of the most purely fun Bollywood action movies I've seen. Just so much to enjoy, every scene looks like a million dollars, every performance (especially a top-tier SRK here) is chewing up the scenery in the best way possible, the soundtrack is full of bangers, just a really really fun film.
And the sequel is even better! Can't wait to rewatch that tomorrow with the Indian filmtwt gang 😌❤️
