Girl believes in love, Boy doesn't believe in love. boy meets girl, annoys her, then befriends her, makes her laugh, she falls for him. he doesn't realize that he has also fallen for her.. so begin misunderstanding, apologies, going crying to mom's etc, finally both come to their senses and live happily ever after.
But there is a very tiny humorous self deprecation to it which is lost due to all the cliches of Bollywood.
The film on which the pair is working seems borrow a leaf from LSD and mocks 3 bigwigs, Aditya Chopra, KJo and Bhansali. The set designs are straight out of Sawariya and Devdas. The director in the movie is a caricature of Bhansali (whose reaction I am highly anticipating!). The story has no twist what so ever, with the only difference being that in the end hero runs away from airport instead of towards it!
Acting wise, everyone is mediocre. Imran Khan is cocky, imitating Mamujaan frequently but having none of the brilliance of Aamir. Sonam looks pretty but is annoying especially because of her voice. I keep wondering how talented actors don't tell their offspring that they just can't act! The hero in the film inside film is really an ass (words quoted form the movie). Sameer Soni loses it completely trying to present an over the top Bhansali.
The saving grace of the movie... is its music. All the songs are really nice with a light hearted romantic feel to them. Vishal-Shekhar of the old seem to have returned after the recent debacles. My personal favourite is "Bin Tere", Sunidhi does an awesome rendition!
Final verdict... After having panned the film, this may seem contradictory, but I am a girl who loves mills and boon romances, so for all girls who like romances, this movie is definitely worth a one time watch! All guys, like my GUY, if you do take your girl to watch it, take a flashlight and book along else avoid as far as possible!
