It’s a story of Jai(Imran) and Aditi(Genelia) who consider each other as best friends,while their group of friends think they both love each other and so does parents of jai and aditi,but jai and aditi believe they aren’t in love at all.So,does the love between them really exist and if yes,when will they realize its love?..Thats what the film is all about
Imran Khan, he was really natural..during aditi song,he reminded a lot of aamir to me,while his voice no longer looked like hritik to me now....he gave a superb performance…be it humour or smiling or emotional ones..he didn’t lack in any at all
Genelia , she was just wow…but I still wished she had a longer screen presence..felt she was given 3-4 less scenes..what I loved about her was,her character..hyper,emotional,cute,sweet,happy and what not..And about accent,well I don’t believe she is bad at all
Naseeruddin Shah , he was very good in his cameo..infact he reminded of that famous serial hum paanch..quite funny
Ratna Pathak Shah , was quite good…
Jiggs,Boms,Ratlu,Meghna,Sushant,they all were quite good..spcially ratlu,he was the best of all,while jigs had a funny accent…meghna looked beautiful but still at places I found her lowwhile Sushant was fine.
What Worked :
Performances of Imran and Genelia,excellent support from the gang of friends,music…good mixture of humour with emotions ..infact the film was so simple and real…leaving aside the climaxThough climax I loved too although cinematic liberty is there in it and its nothing new ..also the use of jaane tu ya jaane na kishore song is very nice…loved it …while the cameos of special appearances also were good ones..
What Didn’t Work :
Editing wasn’t upto the mark..2nd half could had been shortened…emotional content was less…just wished that they had used jaane tu mera kya hai and jaane tu meri kya hai songs..and there were situations in the film where they could had made it…but unfortunately didn’t use it …
Music is ofcourse marvelous…I had rated it 4.5..and it deserves to be rated so high…talking of songs pictuisation…aditi is very well picturised..bit funny..nice choreography..and ofcourse pappu cant dance saala has become a hit no now..and was very well used too ..Nazrein milaana is good as a song during film…jaane tu ya jaane naa is used as almost background song…while kahin toh hogi who is the best picturised song for me..as it had the emotional content written all over it… and it did make me feel too …Ofcourse I missed other 2 songs a lot
