Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

rab ne bana di jodi takes on the nitty-gritty of the romance in an arranged marriage. Enough reason for Aditya Chopra to bring in the mush and gush. Yet, "What a woman wants?" and "What her man is capable of giving" is explored with some insight. We are growing up, but only 'haule haule'
