The movie continues to be split into three love tales between Govind- Ruksar in Bombay circa 1960, Krish-Radha working in London of 2012 and Javed-Aradhana in 1910 at Lahore. The fundamental plot for the tales is identical. Boy-meets-girl, the first hesitancy, sparks fly, love happens, reality gets control and hearts break.
Clearly, the reasons that heart break are very different for the 3 eras. Although, there's not new about how a love tales start, the idea of imbibing all of the three together within the same film was very worthwhile. However, the implementation from the concept is extremely regular.
Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra deliver fine performances within the film. Shahid is first-rate because the ambitious music performer from the 60s and also the stylish collegian of today, though his shayar act from the 1910s was quite abysmal. Priyanka too, is convincing because the large celebrity heroine from the 60s, another uber-awesome kid residing in London along with the reticent village girl at Lahore. You will find a couple of chinks within their armour in a couple of places; however the dialogue authors should take the culprit with this. Prachi Desai is wonderful in her own special appearance. Vrajesh Hirjee, who plays a scribe within the film (although, he's no dialogues) is brilliant in in the minuscule role! The relaxation from the supporting cast is very miserable. They do not fit the part, nor will they act it.
The very first half holds lots of promise. The sixties era is written perfectly. There's a semblance of Chaplinesque comedy, which does have the ability to overshadow the awful sets (Bombay of 1960 was recreated poorly!) The performances place in through the protagonists together with Prachi Desai, were brilliant, which together with the feet-tapping Uff gave the film a rollicking start! London 2012 would be a minor blip around the radar, which becomes a blot through the interval! A few of the moments are charming a couple of are cringe-inducing and also of these, laughable. The writing (Kunal Kohli and Robin Bhatt) was good within the first half, but abysmal in the second part. The chemistry between Shahid and Priyanka is sparkling. You find glimpses of Kohli's brilliance in Hum Tum in certain parts nevertheless the steam expires when the film reaches the half-way mark. The film keeps meandering between being too cheesy and too serious, and therefore, manages to lose the plot.
The songs created by Sajid-Wajid are a best, passable. Not one of the music from the movie are incredible. Uff and Mukhtasar were shot wonderfully (Cinematography by Sunil Patel), which is that!
Viewable for die-hard Shahid-Priyanka fans! Even love story fans will not be also amazed in this movie. Tried actually hard to enjoy the movie in the Second half, but could not!
