Review: 'Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaania' is a delightful family drama with all the elements we expect from a Karan Johar film, but with a deeper layer that addresses important social issues. The combination of talented Bollywood stars like Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi has added to the film's charm and appeal.

Rocky Randhawa (Ranveer Singh) is a flamboyant scion of a successful family mithai magnate, Dhanlaxmi (Jaya Bachchan). Rocky wants to trigger his amnesiac grandfather Kanwal’s (Dharmendra) memories by reconnecting him with a woman from his past, Jamini Chatterjee (Shabana Azmi), who is also Rani’s (Alia Bhatt) Thakuma (grandmother). For this, he meets the intellectual and cultured Rani, and despite their personalities being dramatically different, love blossoms over song, dance and hilarious one-liners. The movie is also about clashing cultures and personalities and depicts how judgmental and dismissive people can be of each other. There is ample melodrama and tears—all in KJo's extravagant style.

The premise of Rocky trying to trigger his grandfather's memories by reconnecting him with a woman from his past is a heartwarming and intriguing plot point. The clash of cultures and personalities between Rocky and Rani adds a layer of complexity to their relationship, making it more engaging for the audience.

The use of classic Bollywood medleys and self-references to previous KJo movies is a clever way to delight fans and pay homage to the industry's rich history.

Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt has delivered strong performances, and Jaya Bachchan's portrayal of a multi-dimensional character added depth to the story. The film's music, direction, and visual elements also seem to be top-notch, enhancing the overall experience.

The film's subtle but effective portrayal of societal issues such as patriarchy, gender bias, and body shaming is commendable. Addressing these topics in a light and humorous manner can be a powerful way to raise awareness and provoke thought among the audience.

While the storyline may not be overly complex or groundbreaking, it seems to compensate with its humor, heart, and meaningful message. And the depiction of a changing mindset in the climax, where Rocky's parents ask for Rani's hand in marriage, shows a positive shift towards equality.

Overall, this film would entertain, touch hearts, and leave the audience with a smile, while subtly nudging them to reflect on important social issues. This film has all the elements to be a big hit among fans of Bollywood and Karan Johar's films alike.
