The coming of the small budget film brought with it stories of the underbelly of our society and its daily concerns. It brought with it a closer look into nitty-gritty minute dissection of mindsets and keen observations of lifestyles. It also brought with it a lot of inconclusive meandering and pointless films. Sadly, Shahrukh Bola Khubsoorat Hain Tu is just one such film.

Typically pointless from start to finish it revolves around the lives of few people of a shanty in Mumbai whose lives change dramatically. The reason? Shahrukh Khan, the country’s biggest super-star happens to sight a flower-selling girl (Laali) at a traffic signal and tells her she is beautiful. The boy in love with her who sells books across the signal gets offended and stabs her. She refuses to relent to his love, now more in love with Shahrukh Khan than ever. The boy goes downhill, depression, drinks etc etc while a bar dancer smitten by him keeps trying to win him over. A journalist duo, are following the stabbing story, in quite a similar pointless fashion as the film itself.

The lead actors put in a convincing performance but in a languid, lazy screenplay, have nothing much to contribute to. The scenes in themselves are written with some thought and some quirk. They are true to the world they portray but that’s about it. Shahrukh Khan himself puts in an appearance to bring alive the promise of the tile and the whole film surreptitiously yet generously promotes brand Shahrukh, bringing the simplicity of the film to a naught.

The film weaves into itself every element of mainstream films, love, action, intrigue, dreams, comedy, tragedy and so on yet fails to fashion a whole leave alone wholesome package. It even fails to tell Laali’s story convincingly or fully and probably best manages to sell brand Shahrukh to an audience already much in love with him. What then, was the point of the film is pretty much undefinable.
