Rab ne Bana di Jodi

Rab ne Bana di Jodi
[DVD Rab]

Dancing and singing and late night chats with best friends - for girls only? Not so. Shah Rukh Kahn & Anushka Sharma star in this surprising and unconventional romance. Surinder Sahni is a staid employee of Punjab Power living in his parents' home who falls in love with Tanni, the vivacious 18 year-old daughter of his former mentor. Tragic circumstances bring them together, and Suri finds himself wooing his wife in ways that bring him out of the shell in which he has lived for so long. Suri's best friend, played by Vinay Pathak, encourages his antics and before long even the audience is cheering for more! For fans of Shah Rukh Khan, this movie is a joyous celebration of everything that he is known for. The music is lively, and the number that has an homage to movies of the past is a nice touch. If you are unfamiliar with Hindi movies, this is not a bad place to start. -- recommended by Sarah E.J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
