The Film lacks a tightly knit screenplay especially after the interval, after the song “Kasam se jiyara chakna choor hai”, when the screenplay loses focus especially on relationships.

Nothing about the fate of Shahrukh’s family is revealed, and the relationship between Shahrukh and Katrina develops in half baked manner. The film lost its focus from here and to add to that the Mars angle and NASA spacecraft all in unison had annoyed the audience.

Illogical climax

The climax of the film was illogical, and it seems that the makers had made the film believing that Indian audience does not think or reason. A 10th pass person is aboard a swanky spaceship and is flying to Mars; the Indian Audience could not digest this story.

Poor Dialogues in the second half

The dialogues in the first half were excellent and had the audience laughing and bursting at their seams. Dialogues such as the one in which Shahrukh rebukes his father about his habit of chewing tobacco which stunted his sperms, and therefore he became a dwarf had audience roaring. However, in the second half, the dialogues were poor and sparse. There were no light moments, and it seemed that the second half was not directed by the same Director who had done his job so well in the first half.
