5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyably over-the-top story and performance!, 5 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Duplicate [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
this is for those out there who still doubt shah rukh khan's acting abilities. not only does he pull off portraying two completely different characters with ease -- the at times annoyingly sweet mummy's boy, chef-in-the-making babloo and the slightly sadistic and revengeful manoo -- but he tops this by both of the characters having to pass themselves off as their "duplicate": effectively, he's portraying four differenct roles in one film. his love interest, playbed by juhi chawla, complements his performance as the stern sonia who begins to melt when he starts romancing her in his innocent-but-naughty way. farida jalal stands out as his loving mum "bébé" who always knows what's best for her son and takes matters in her own hands. her punjabi take on japanese cuisine and babloo's reaction are great fun to watch.

the story details can be found on the imdb.com. i highly recommend this film as it is very entertaining, so much so that it pulls even its own, or the industry's leg at the very end with a few seconds of over-the-top dancing by the main characters. the songs are great, as well. my favourites are "wah ji wah" which has shah rukh looking and behaving slightly camp as the super chef, "meri mehboob" with bollywood moves to die for and "ek shararat", obviously shot in switzerland, showing how babloo tries to escape the advances of the criminal manoo's girlfriend while manoo tries to seduce sonia.

although some of the action scenes and the supporting cast might transport you back to the 80s, let this not deter you from watching this lovely little gem of a film.
