We all swear by Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan's intelligence and shrewdness! Apart from his acting skills, it's his wit, sharp business acumen that makes him the Badshah of Bollywood!
While all these years he swayed our hearts with some impressive films like DDLJ, KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, DIL TOH PAGAL HAI, SWADES, KAL HO NAA HO, DEVDAS, etc, of late his choice of work hasn't been palatable enough!
And that can be gauged with the kind of movies that he has been doing. Considering SRK's body of work in the past, here we go listing six such films that, we believe, defy his intellect level!
HAPPY NEW YEAR: Shah Rukh's latest release HAPPY NEW YEAR may have raked in desired moolah at the BO and entered in the fastest 100 crore club, the movie hasn't appealed critics and janta janardan alike! HNY is being slammed for its illogical twists and turns and imprudent plot. The Farah Khan starrer was a complete let down for the fans
CHENNAI EXPRESS: Rohit Shetty's entertainer CHENNAI EXPRESS was meant to enthrall the audience with its humor, however the movie lacked luster. Though Deepika's character of Meenaamma was loved by all, Shahrukh, who enacted the roles like DEVDAS, CHAK DE INDIA & others, seemed irrational and misplaced in the plot.
JAB TAK HAI JAAN: Shahrukh and Yash Chopra's association was always a successful one with films like DARR, DIL TOH PAGAL HAI, VEER-ZAARA. So it was quite expected that JAB TAK HAI JAAN would also be riveting. However, the film didn't live up to the anticipated mark.
RA.ONE: This sci-fi superhero flick was promoted to be one of the most sensible films around. With the kind of aura built around RA.ONE, it was believed that the film would be a stunner. The visuals and music received good praise but the script & direction was criticized clearly .
MY NAME IS KHAN:With MNIK, Shahrukh mostly encashed on teaming up with Kajol and filmmaker Karan Johar (the KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI and K3G team) rather than giving attention to film's treatment. While people visited cinemas expecting to relive the magical jodi SRK-Kajol on-screen, sadly the film was a dampener!
OM SHANTI OM:Releasing alongside SAAWARIYA may have benefitted OSO monetary wise, but the movie wasn't received well by the audience. This yet another Farah Khan's directorial venture had some unwise moments packaged with Shahrukh's overacting.
