Anurag reviews Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani
Anurag’s post read, “Best @karanjohar movie. He never leaves his world but he doesn’t hold back any punches either. It’s also the second KJo movie for which I also bought tickets twice and send all who trust on me, for Go and See. Some super writing, top form @ranveersingh, ever so brilliant @aliaabhatt and their sparkling chemistry. After long I loved the dialogue writing in mainstream Hindi movies where people speak the way they speak. Kudos to @ _ishita_moitra_ and @ gogoroy.
“My favorite part of the film is the incredible unrequited love story of @aapkadharam and @azmishabana18 and the patriarchal villainy of the matriarch @jayabachchn. Also not to forget @totaroychoudhury and @utterlychurni, @bashiraamir and the maternal sister duo of Ranveer. (sorry for not knowing who they er) The use of old classical songs and the trolling of @somenmishra with “meri pyaari bindu” .. ugh it gave me so much personal joy. Jokes apart – the way Karan addresses all forms of snobbery , all forms of shame and phobias that come from our conditioning, the way he addresses our conditioning with all the humor and aplomb and joharisms.. was completely absorbed in his world.. the highlight of the movie for me was @totaroychoudhury and @ ranveersingh dancing to “Dola re Dola re”. And the whole monologue of Ranveer about how we cancel each other all the time or Alia’s rant post Durga Pujo scene.. and @baidnitin.. you actually cut the songs halfway (or did Karan shoot them only the amount that was required) .. it was also the first in a KJO film. Thoroughly entertained and laughed and cried and believe it or not .. watched it twice .. the mainstream Hindi film I’ve been missing for so long .. the real @karanjohar that I know has put himself out there.”
Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi and Jaya Bachchan. It came out on Friday and is embossed ₹16 crore after its second day.
