[W]hat if, one likes only the ending credits in a movie?
That means that the 2 hours+ movie had nothing good to offer at all. Not just the ending credits were impressive but they were the only catchy thing this childish film had.
And well that totally comes as unexpected. Not that much was anticipated from the film but then this ultra low level of boredom wasn’t too.

So here comes ’s another Bollywood averagely romantic so-called comedy that borrows its name from an iconic Hindi song, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil from Yaadon Ki Baraat, yet another Bollywood and mostly Television trend, and which is no way seems related to the movie. And this supposed to be a love story which is more of overdose-of-overreactions is the debut film by none other, but Imitiaz Ali’s brother Arif Ali.
Now all of us know what literally the phrase “not all fingers are of same length” means?
Nirdeshak (Director) – Utapadak (Producers)
Arif ventured out for his first film with Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan’s production house, Illuminati Films and Eros International which have a record of both god and bad films, but some worst films as well.
And this one too is.
Yes the measure seems unfair as there is hard work involved in every film but then categorization will help the audience, and it becomes extremely important to rate films when one feels that they have been poorly handled.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The story is very old school, and on top of it boring, it belongs to 80s-90s era. What it is? Let’s not disclose it for those who still want to watch the film, but in nutshell it’s about young age, falling in and out of love and it’s said to be a rom-com.
But it is nothing of the above. First there isn’t any love factor; the love story seems forceful on the main leads. Only the first few minutes into the movie are nice, and then straight to the credits part in the end.
Sadly, the rest of the film gives just yawns. Then most of the scenes and situations are just juvenile, forced upon and random, the dialogues are hopeless and have been tried hard to sound funny. Well using cool stuff and teen-ies language doesn’t add up to make a lively script. The movie tries hard to put a joke or a funny diversion to almost every scene which makes the movie all the more dull. Who uses acronyms like ‘blunder.com’ when in a bad situation; those are the kind of dialogues.
One can call them creative but then the way they are used, where they are used and how they are spoken is all bad.
Armaan Jain doesn’t impress much, he clearly doesn’t know how to act yet, and rather he surely does overreact very nicely. He is just average in the movie and couldn’t make it big with his debut. Deeksha Seth on the other hand, having done few films down South, was confident and showed good potential. In fact in some scenes one really forgets that it’s her first Bollywood film. Way to go girl!
Having said that, somewhere both the actors were restrained by not just dull writing but, ineffective direction as well. And for both the pointer is towards the director-cumwriter othe film Arif. So it will be a bit unfair to judge them with this film.
Sudeep Sahir did well in his not-so-nicely established role. Akhil Iyer as Mahesh made his presence felt both because of his role and acting. Rohini Hattangadi, Varun Badola and Gautami Kapoor were talent misused.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Even the music guru AR Rahman’s songs were average and didn’t work right in the film. Totally unexpected. Doesn’t seem to be a AR Rahman soundtrack at all!
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Nothing in the movie seems real, it’s that naïve. Screenplay going on a random ride, actors over reacting at times and not-acting in other parts, bad music and the list goes on! Skip this one.
Do tell us what you think about the movie and the review.
