Chalte Chalte is no doubt a fully fledged Bollywood commercial venture with top stars, exotic foreign locations, expensive sets, colourful dances and melodious songs but at the same time it's a daring experiment in many ways.
I really liked this movie even if it's true in some scenes we feel bored and I think it could be better done.
SRK denied that the film was a lift off Saathiya but the basic premise was the same - only thing is Manirathnam handled it much better and with greater sensitivity.
I don't know why Sharukh Khan does this to his production. He works better with other producers and directors...But with His own production... he is lost.
Although the movie has a not-very-exciting plot overall, I can't say it bored me to death or that I was in agony waiting for it to end. A good storyline was missing.
This is one movie in which the music helped make the movie easier to get through.
Plus point is the music. I loved it.
All in all, Average in almost every aspect (except the performances) - the music saves the movie!
