English Babu Desi Mem combines many elements: romance, drama, comedy and music.
This is one of SRK's more minor films but it does have some memorable things/moments. I liked the first song, it was so colorful, lots of dancers, Shahrukh looks good even with the ill fitting long wig he was wearing.
There were serious elements in the movie, and they were portrayed sincerely. The comedy was goofy, but that was largely a result of zooming in on the characters' whenever they made exaggerated faces.
I liked quite a bit of the songs/lyrics, and the dancing was well done.
Shahrukh was at his best when he got angry or in the romantic moments. I even liked the acting of master Sunny Singh. Sonali was and is and will be always cute and beautiful. Rest all were type cast.
A good fun time watchable film.
