Movie Review-Shahrukh Bola Khubsoorat Hai Tu: One day,a grimy flower-seller at a traffic intersection is told by the country’s biggest superstar: khubhsoorat hai tu . And Lali’s world changes.

This could have been a nice film,especially because it comes from Makrand Deshpande,fine actor and playwright. What we get is jaw-droppingly bad. Lali (Chawla) is adored by a scrawny fellow who sells cheap bestsellers at the same crossing,who is adored in turn by a bar dancer. He is jealous of Shah Rukh Khan,the guy who has the temerity to smile at his girl. The bar dancer is jealous of the flower-seller. They call each other names,and engage in fisticuffs. The bookseller boyfriend gets beaten up every few minutes. He also gets drunk and lurches about. The flower-seller spends her time in a theatre playing Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge ,and repeating SRK’s dialogues to the goondas who live down the lane.

The director gives himself a role in his film,by playing a minor hood called Salim Hatheli,who is so scary that those same gali ka goondas scatter when they see him. Somewhere in there is also a journalist,and a cop. And Shah Rukh,in a blink-and-miss appearance.
