When someone with an eye for talent and with a grip on the written material attempts a film [Makarand Deshpande], you expect the celluloid experience to be an invigorating and enlightening journey. But Shahrukh Bola Khoobsurat Hai Tu comes across as a disjointed and incoherent effort which appeals in bits and spurts. Clearly, the fault lies in the written material [screenplay].
To start with, the very first sequence of the film - an obsessed lover stabbing a woman because SRK has said, 'khoobsurat hai tu' - falls flat after you've watched the film in entirety. Sure, people do commit heinous crimes in a fit of rage, but there's no solid reason for this person to take this extreme step, in this case. At least it doesn't come across as strongly in the narrative. Besides, the goings-on vacillate between interesting and boring moments constantly, which makes this one a lackluster affair.
Laali [Preetika Chawla] is a die-hard Shahrukh Khan fan. She sells flowers on the street to earn livelihood. While selling flowers one day, a car stops and she hears a voice asking for flowers. She realizes that the person in the car is none other than her idol Shahrukh Khan. SRK just says, 'khoobsurat hai tu' and that makes Laali go crazy. The film begins with a person, John, stabbing Laali because she doesn't reciprocate his love. The remainder of the film is about Laali, John and the assorted people in the basti.
