The first movie as a Director by Mudassar Aziz. A nice attempt by him, but not so good story presented to us. However, the screenplay done by him is somewhat bearable and also somewhat quite interesting in second half, but again. A bad start with a lousy script in hand.
Story of the film is very simple, Infact it’s quite predictable and you must have seen number of times from our old 80’s film. Also one can compare it with many films, as the story and the script is quite and almost same.
Fardeen Khan is a rich guy, lives in West Indies, and does not believe in marriages, he was just happy with his bachelor hood. One fine day, his lawyer came to him and read the will of his dad, which included that he has to marriage to one his friend’s daughter, Ishita Sharma, who lives in some village at Punjab. He agrees in a culprit way. Goes to village, marriages her on legal paper, comes back to West Indies without Ishita by giving some excuse, enjoys the wealth, and continues to live his bachelor life. Later when Fardeen doesn’t come back, Ishita alone goes to West Indies to find out the truth. When she found out, and sadly walking on the road, accidently she met Sushmita, who is a Super Model and a very close friend of Fardeen. Sush heard the whole story, decided to help her, and to teach a lesson to his friend. Sush changed Ishita from gaon ki chori to West Indies ki gori. Naturally now Fardeen got attracted to her, and as per their plan Ishita was ignoring him. Later Fardeen realizes his ego problem, falled in love with Ishita but as a Shehar ki gori. Finally at the end everything was revealed, Fardeen was sorry, Ishita as a gaon ki chori and as a shehar ki gori accepted him, and the film ends, the end.
The role of Sharukh was just a little bit where he was playing the lover of Sush. When the story of Fardeen and Ishita was moving, the story of Sharukh and Sush were also part and part of moving. At the end Fardeen and Ishita got united and Sush and SRK got married.
Direction given by Mudassar was impressive, even though it was his first time. Story was quite old, just like old wine in a new bottle. Screenplay was much better in second half, and a total bore in the first half. The climax of the film was something nice and a feel good factor (as always). Cinematography, Editing, all was well. Some Hindi cum filmy scenes was total a timepass, and lovely to be watched also.
Sush has a role of a Super Model, she acts perfectly, but sometimes she over does. Fardeen was much better compare to his older films. He is actually growing. Ishita Sharma as a lead actress supports very well. She was looking gorgeous, averagely performed, handled well the emotion scenes, but there was a little bit of lacking in her acting. Tara Sharma and Mohit Chadda were strictly Ok. Johnny Lever as a Hussain bhai was sweet, and others like Suchitra Pillai, Howard Rosemeyer, Vivek Vaswani, etc performed well. And last but not the least, SRK played at his best (as usual). His role was short, he came as a guest appearance, but whenever he was there n the screen, he was just spreading magic everywhere.
Music of the film is again good and can be rate as an average point of view. Some songs are memorable like “Akela DIl” and “Dulha Mil Gaya” the title song. The videos are kind of boring but kind of entertaining also. The BGM can be also rate as an average.
Why should one watch this film?
1. If you love those 80’s melodramatic film and want to see it in a newish 2010 way, then you can surely watch it.
2. Also not to be forgotten that, if you are a die heart fan of SRK and had also seen his worst movies like “Maya Memsahab” & “Oh! Darling Yeh hain India”, then you can surely watch it.
Don’t watch it in theatre if you still say “Yes” after reading the above two points also. Just wait for DVD instead.
