CE review: SRK been riding the DDLJ train for 18 long years – plus constant reference to his old movies – someone slap him out of it
What is not tolerable are the dozens of references to nearly all of SRK’s films, from Dil Se to My Name Is Khan to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and (someone’s really got to step up and slap him out of it) DDLJ. In fact, the last four words SRK says in Chennai Express –with no trace of irony – are “dilwale dulhaniya le jaayenge”. Ugh.
SRK, you’ve been riding the DDLJ train for 18 long years. But just like cinema in India has evolved, the audience has, too. Careful now. The last thing you want is for their reverence to turn into rage.
