Director: Ali Abbas Zafar
Starring : Imran Khan, Katrina Kaif, Ali Zafar
Music by : Sohail Sen
“I am in love with my brother’s fiancé”. No! Don’t take this too literally, we the ‘Indian Audiences’ are now mature enough to understand the comical and entertainment oriented intentions of Director Ali Abbas Zafar who has also written the script!
Lets admit it! Bollywood’s “King of Hearts” post is vacant!. 15 years ago, a product from YRF Factory delivered a by-product called SRK who wins over the hearts of audiences! Will Imran Khan inherit this post for the next decade? One has to wait and watch!
The story revolves around Kush (Imran Khan), Luv (Ali Zafar), Dimple (Katrina Kaif) and Piyali (Tara D’Souza). Kush and Dimple were just acquaintances who met each other at during a college trip, had a good time, felt easy in the company of one another. So when they meet again and hang-out, their liking for each other intensifies. This liking is revealed only after Dimple gets engaged to Kush’s own brother! The second half of the movie is supposed to be “All hell breaks loose” kind, however it turns out to be “Wait, this scene reminds me of a recent bollywood movie” kind! This movie does justice to the title! Overall the movie manages to induce fresh romance and genuine comedy. The onscreen chemistry between Imran and Katrina works!
The ease with which Imran emotes onscreen and the clarity of his dialogues makes you like him even more as an actor. Katrina looks as if she wants to erupt into a song all the time. The role of Dimple looks thoroughly inspired from “Aditi” and “Geet” characters. Katrina does fit the role, however there is still scope for better performance. Her admirers aren’t complaining though! Ali Zafar looks to be under utilized in the role of Imran’s brother, however he is happy to collect his paycheque from YRF. Tara D’Souza looks to have been picked up from a tooth-paste commercial!
YRF ensures the songs are upto the mark, remember “Tashan” and “Jhoom Barabar Jhoom”? In this movie, Music Director Sohail Sen makes his mark by delivering two good tunes, ‘Dhunki’ and ‘Isk Risk’. !
Bottomline, we have seen a lot of Hindi movies, what do they usually preach? If you like a girl, don’t wait till the moment she gets engaged or till she falls for another guy. But then, if Kush hadn’t waited till Dimple got engaged to his brother, may be it would resemble another movie? Its a tight rope walk for love flicks in Bollywood these days. So keep it genuine, Director sir!
