It’s a good thing that Ravi Chopra is focusing on social issues in his films like Baaghban and Baabul, but because the ideas and the style are borrowed from old films, his treatment too is old-fashioned.

Tears for fears. Anyone... I am a sucker for sob stories and love to let the stream of emotions glide through the eyes. But while watching 'Babul' each time that urge welled up, the effect was diluted by the simplistic superficiality of the treatment meted out to a noble subject. The end result of Ravi Chopra's efforts to highlight widow remarriage is an exercise in blatant surrogate advertising (Audi, Taj Mahal tea, Nerolac Paints, Kotak Insurance etc etc) and tons of sermonizing. If it wouldn't have been for the caramelpopcorn-romance generated by Salman Khan, 'Babul' may well have been a disaster. A few goose-pimple-evoking songs are charming reasons to stay back too.

The film is just fit for the weekend, but it falls a bit short of expectations

The theatre was pretty comfortable: good seats, big screen, and great sound. Yet the three hours I spent in there turned out to be extremely painful, for what unfolded on screen was akin to sitting in a busy Toronto emergency room waiting for the doctor,

Baabul is a family drama that works only because of some really good performances. Other than that, there is nothing new to offer. Also the running length of the movie, as well as the pacing of the movie hurt it really badly. If anything the movie should
