Karan Johar directly hits the audience where our Indian Audience generally gets fools, yes its emotional part, and who traps in that are known as emotional fools. It’s good to be emotional, but in films and movies if it’s being well presented then this emotional formula works, otherwise it sucks.
It’s the story of about one family, where there is husband (Arjun Rampal as Aman) who is being divorced, and wife (Kajol as Maya) who stays along with their three kids. Yet they are being divorced but still they all love each other and care for each other, and the dad often meets their kids also. Now Aman and Shreya (Kareena Kapoor) loves each other, and he wants Shreya to be friends with kids. But things get upside down as kids plus somewhat Maya also are not accepting Shreya and their relationship with Aman. As the story moves on Maya gets to know that she is suffering from Cancer. And now I guess everybody would make out the rest of the story.
1. The overall story was being unnecessary stretched and prolonged.
2. Story was nothing new and the way it was being shown was also not impressive.
3. Unnecessary emotion part was being drag over and over time.
4. There were no feelings in the written dialogues.
1. Though there were a dose of drama here, but it was not something overdose also, except for few things.
2. Silent emotion parts, with no dialogues, were expressed beautifully, both by the actors and writer-director.
Though it might be some adaption of one of the Hollywood movie, but I believe any movie is being well presented in the overall script way, then it’s definitely worth watching it, or definitely worth saying how bad it is.
In this movie the overall story was unnecessarily stretched out with no means. In the first 20mins only audiences gets the idea what the whole film is about and what would be there climax. And thus, to wait for the climax to come after 2hrs, right from the 20mins, the journey starts to feel like something is being prolonging here. If and only if the emotional part or the dramatize part is being well presented, then obviously the film would be enjoyable, and you wouldn’t know where your 2hrs have been gone, otherwise, this 2hrs will make you sick, time will kill you, and you will certainly get bored. This film will feel you the exactly the same way. You will start liking the film initially but later on once you will feel the sense of prolonging somewhere, you will start getting bored.
Also as the story was nothing new, same old cancer formula, emotions between family, and etc. the lack of interest were coming out straight from the inside, and this result, pluses in our boredom. As I said earlier the story was stretched out, some portions were also moved fast. Like for example, in the very start of the movie one of the kids, Aleya – the elder one, hated the most to Shreya like anything. Till interval she hated the most among all, and also for few minutes in the post interval. But when Shreya says just one dialogue, that “main sirf tumhari mummy ki madat karna chahti, lekin main yeh tumhari madat se nai kar sakti”, and Kaboom, magic happened and they both became very good friends. This sudden realization with just one dialogue didn’t at all digest me. Plus all the written dialogues were not having that depth of feeling inside them. All thanks to the big star cast out here, that just because of them these dialogues were little bit of expressive.
The only good part in this film which I liked here is that it gives and feels the importance of mother here. This part is very well being presented, very emotionally, and no doubt you will surely miss your mother at some point of time in the entire movie. For this impact, for this feeling, I will give two thumbs up to the makers.
This film belongs to the age above 50, below then that will hardly like the movie. I am quite surprised that some of my friends out here like the movie so much, and rated 3.5 and 4 stars also. So I guess either they might be 50+ of their age, or they are emotional fool.
