| It's difficult to match King Khan's performance
I'll try not to be emotional in this, although as a Shah Rukh Khan fan I felt waves of emotions while watching the movie and after it ended it was an emotional moment to see the King Khan back with a blinding, thundering, stupendous performance for which we (the fans) have waited for so long.

The idea of the movie was interesting, and the script has several plot holes, some of them, pretty big. Character consistency of Aryan Khanna the star is dubious. But.... what gives?

The overall execution, that is, the direction, the dialogues, the pacing, the grey areas, and above-all the performance of SRK which sometimes makes it a one-man show simply because he doesn't allow you to see anything else. For non-fans of SRK, this movie will show them how to play a character of a young person without behaving like a half-retard, ears and eyes popping out, juvenile character whose puerile emotions are only based in innocence. For the average Indian audience whose cinematic vision derives from star worship and alignment of the star with their own personal values, "intelligent acting" equates how they see the world and what they are fed as "acting" and "cinema" packaged as "intelligent" which is as genuine and honest as "Patanjali" Maggi.

But SRK, thankfully, didn't fall into that straitjacket. There are moments in the film where you could be wondering about how a certain thing could be possible (don't want to give away spoilers) but not for one second, will you have second thoughts on credibility of emotions portrayed and character portrayed.

Go and see this film if you want to see good performances.

Yes, I wrote good *performances*, because honestly speaking, there are two people in it--SRK the star, and SRK the actor.

I'm so glad I finally got to see the actor, for which I became his fan. Proud of my star.
