Time Out says
Thu Oct 27 2011Bollywood’s most expensive film to date is a superhero sci-fi 3D fantasy with sizzling songs. Shekhar (Shah Rukh Khan) a nerdy Tamilian Londoner designs a video game (see title) in order to prove to his son that he’s a ‘cool dude’. You must suspend belief in order to enjoy what happens next in this passable and unpretentious Hindi flick. The set-action pieces are spectacular. The filmmakers obviously enjoyed trashing a London bus and destroying the gothic Mumbai Victoria railway terminus. ‘King Khan’ holds it all together, as he gets to walk sideways along a speeding train, to do a Michael Jackson impersonation, slap the heroine’s butt, cruise a male immigration officer and generally kick-ass. The CGI imagery is on par with any recent Hollywood blockbuster; the result is just as dumb.
