Reachout's review of

Sharukh Khan- Josh

Directed by  Mansoor Khan

* ing :Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Sharad Kapoor, Chandrachur Singh, Priya Gill 

Music: Anu Malik 

This movie is Shah Rukh Khan's Josh Machine to come back to the No:1 position with a bang after the fiasco of Baadshah and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. With Josh, ShahRukh Khan is definitely back with all his vigour irrespective of the fate of the movie .

Mansoor Khan's film opens in Vasco, a small town in Goa. There are two gangs of ruffians who can never see eye to eye. The Eagle gang is headed by Max (Shah Rukh) , whose rival Prakash (Sharad Kapoor) is the leader of the Bichchoo gang. The two gangs have regular showdowns on the streets of Vasco and it becomes a headache for the towns folk, as for the local police inspector (Sharad Saxena), who looks for an evidence to nail the gang.

As the bitterness between the gangs worsens, Prakash's younger brother Rahul (Chandrachur Singh) returns to his hometown after completing his studies in Mumbai. The city-bred, bola bala Rahul does not agree with Prakash's violent principles. And when he sees Max's twin sister Shirley (Aishwarya Rai) its love at first sight for him. Then on one can imagine the scenes and fights that go on with such a plot.

Shah Rukh Khan is a delight to watch in the Apun bola number, where he gives his own voice. Aishwarya Rai is lively. K V Anand's camera captures Ash's beauty in all its splendor. , Shah Rukh and Ashwarya Rai as siblings strike a perfect screen chemistry even though there were lot of skepticism in their roles as siblings. 

Both Sharad Kapoor, and Chandrachur Singh,measure up to the heights of superstars Khan and Aishwarya Rai. 

The music has been climbing on top of the charts and a couple of numbers are really good.Farah Khans choreography has come out very well especially  in Sailaru sailare and Apun bola.

All in all an entertainment movie for youngsters .Pump up and have a josh with your gang.
