Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani Review

Karan Johar has tried something new in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani.

On the surface, it appears to be a boisterous parody in the body of a soap opera and the soul of a musical.

Dig deeper and you'll discover a shrewd subversion of traditions and values by the same man who popularised and glamorised its virtues to the hilt.

When a wealthy Punjabi family running a mithai empire, specializing in shuddh desi ladoos,

crosses paths with a Bengali household of liberal elites and old money, friction is a foregone conclusion.

Individuals, ideologies and cultures clash over Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani's relentless quest in the art of living.

How to be and not to be and free oneself from the clutches of social conditioning and its malicious tendency to offend and attack anything that challenges its belief?
