Starring Shahrukh Khan, Sonali Bendre, Sunny Singh, Rajeshwari Sachdev

Bollywood  romance with mega-star Khan in three roles. As a prologue, he plays an Indian man who moves to England with his family that includes two sons. Jumping ahead, the oldest son, played by Khan, returns to India, falls in love with a local, and has a son. Sadly, he and his wife die, and are unable to care for the son. So the son is raised by his young Aunt. Jumping ahead again, the second son, played by Khan, finds out about his older brother and his son. He goes to India in order to bring the boy to his rightful home, only to find the boy is devoted to his Aunt. Did you get all that? The opportunity for a classic cross-generational, fun, romantic, Bollywood story is all in place for most of the movie, but the second half falls off. It switches tone poorly from an antagonistic romance between Khan and his nephew’s aunt to a violent street tale. I just wanted the romance.
