The director who made arguably the best Bollywood love story of the 90s ( Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge ) returns a slightly evolved filmmaker with realistic sensibilities that reek of Shimit Aminâ€™s style in Chak De India , but not without the baggage of weepy sentimentality that has by now become synonymous with the Yashraj stamp.â€˜Rab Ne Bana Di Jodiâ€™ is a love story you almost want to believe in.
Cast: Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma
Surinder Sahni aka Soori (Shahrukh Khan) is an introverted, responsible, sincere, realist working as a govt employee in a company named Punjab Power.Taani (Anushka Sharma) is an extroverted, flamboyant, fun-loving, vivacious, dreamer set to get married to the guy she loves.Unforeseen circumstances, however, forces Taani to get married to Surinder and Taani finds herself in a love-less, routine life due in part to the large difference in their age and personalities.
To escape her mundane marital life, Taani learns dancing and wants to participate in a dance competition, a reality show called “Dancing Jodi”. Surinder wants to make his wife happy and supports her.He then,with the help of his childhood friend Balwinder Khosla ‘Bobby’ (Vinay Pathak), metamorphoses into an alternate persona, named Raj who is a quick witted, outspoken, smart, dashing, fun loving person who fortunately becomes Taani’s partner in the competition.
Taani, not able to recognize that Raj is the same one with whom she is married to, eventually starts to feel that Raj’s personality and nature are more in tune with what she is comfortable with.Raj expresses his love for Taani and then they plan to elope from Amritsar on the night of the dancing competition.Surinder doesn’t tell the truth to Taani because he wants to find out with whom Taani is really in love with.In the morning of the competition, Tanni realizes that her true love is Surinder and not Raj.She denies Raj”s feelings and tells him the truth. And at last Surinder presents his reality to her.Hence the story ends merrily.
