Boy meets girl.Boy was the most promising one in college,but has no success.Meets girl.She is his lucky charm.well the rest you know i guess.WOW! unbelievable no twists nothing,just simple and straight forward.
But this is worth a watch.For one thing Shahid does his role well.In certain places it was almost like a repeat ok Jab we met,but still it was worth my time,especially since we all had a nice time guessing the story.It had a few laughs here and there and the main highlight of the movie was the speech in the last scene.
I didn’t like any of the songs and why go all the way to CANADA? I agree with what Nita says(though the comment is with respect to another movie,i see it apply here too ) :
Frankly that’s getting boring. I mean, who wants to see the Swiss Alps in Hindi movies again and again and again! Sometimes I wonder if the actors and crew go abroad because they want a foreign holiday or because they want the film to appeal to the NRI market…it certainly isn’t necessary for the story. And I am sure NRI’s would love to see India more than anything else.
For this movie,any Indian city would have been fine.Or is it that the same problems can’t be dealt with here?Or well maybe they all seriously needed a holiday.What do these people get out of making so many flop movies?I mean this kind of stuff isn’t going to sell right? Then why do such things? The main idea behind any business is to make profit and these people are supposed to be doing that.The only thing they are doing is making actors richer and richer ,this is not needed,let them make their money by really entertaining us,not by doing such dumb movies! I understand the message the movie wanted to convey,but having made us forget about using our brain ,how do they expect to put across their message in the last scene of the movie?The intention was good,but to put across your message you need powerful stuff.I am not going to rate this one.
