Storyline

Professionally qualified as a lawyer, Somen lives a wealthy lifestyle with his mom, Parvati, and dad, Dharam Bhushan, who presides over the town of Shripuri as an upper caste Hindu Priest. During the Dassera fest, Somen meets with village belle, Kajri, and falls in love with her despite of the fact that she is of a much lower caste. After seeking his mom's permission, he goes to bring Kajri to meet her, but finds out that she has left for an unknown destination. Unable to stand his dad's hypocrisy and Bhagwan Shri Ram's temple being misused by Kedar Nath, Somen leaves home to go to the city but is unable to get Kajri out of his mind. A year later he returns home to the same fest, but is still unable to locate Kajri. When his dad insists that he marry Kedar's daughter, Somen not only refuses but leaves home to go and stay with his paternal uncle, Nandlal, who runs a Dairy farm. This is where he meets with Kajri and both rekindle their romance. Somen returns home, convinces his mom ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A story of rape and staleness
30 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

All three of Raj Kapoor's sons tried their hand at direction in order to keep their father's banner alive. All three delivered rather mediocre films and PremGranth is unfortunately a weak melodramatic fare which fails to recreate the magic of Raj Kapoor's movies. Rajiv Kapoor, the youngest of Kapoor's sons, is the one who directs this movie and though he tries hard to adopt his father's style of filmmaking, Prem Grant falls flat and is a most boring, overdone and outdated product. The story seems to be like set in the 1940s, when women had no chances to survive. The film tries to address the theme of rape but it hardly manages to convey its message given the poor script and dated execution. The casting wavers between okay and laughable. The fact that Anupam Kher plays the father of Rishi Kapoor, who in real-life is actually 3 years older than he is, really made me laugh and is an example of terribly tactless casting. The only factor that redeems this film from being a total disaster is undoubtedly Madhuri Dixit, who rises above the script with a heartfelt and convincing performance in the role of a rape victim who tries to move on in life. Some of her scenes after the birth of her child were truly good. But there it ends, and the presence of a ceaselessly beautiful Dixit is not enough to save a stale story of this sort.
