Chef Kunal Kohli's recipe prepared exclusively for CANDYFLOSS, the Chopra chain of restaurants, is recommended only for the sweet-film toothed
4 July 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Here's presenting the recipe of MUJHSE DOSTI KAROGE prepared by Chef KUNAL KOHLI exclusively for CANDYFLOSS, the CHOPRA chain of restaurants: Borrow the basic story idea from DTPH (or any triangular love story). Use a dash of KKHH in the first half and SAAJAN in the second. Some glimpses of DDLJ as per taste. Take Kareena's entry and her father's death sequences from K3G. Add the MAINE PYAR KIYA inspired song parody sequence and end it hurriedly, inspired from K2H2 again. Add the regular YASH CHOPRA sauces i.e. melodious music and cool choreography. Garnish it with foreign locales, jazzy costumes and grandeur sets. MDK is ready. The CHOPRA restaurant also gives you an extra papad (Uday Chopra) free of cost.

So the story is about 3 friends, who are separated in their childhood. Raj (Hrithik) shifts to London and from there mails regularly to Tina (Kareena), who isn't much interested in replying. All those emails are replied by Pooja (Rani) but under the name of Tina (Well I suppose the net wasn't introduced in India about 15 years from now). Raj comes to India and gradually falls in love with Tina, but when he realizes that all those letters were written by Pooja his heart suddenly flips over towards her in less than a second (like they say, Hrithik Ki Tarah, o sorry, girgit Ki Tarah rang badal na). Then starts the triangle. Finally friends become lovers and lovers become friends. And when it comes to Hindi cinema, there isn't much difference between the two terms.

Film-critic-turned-director Kunal Kohli handles many sequences with sensitivity but relies too heavily on the tried and tested stuff. Like the climax that shows a pinch full of sindoor falling on Rani's forehead appears way too clichéd. Moreover Words like farz, vaada, saccha pyar, qurbani are bandied about so many times that they lose their significance.

Finally the movie clearly belongs to Rani Mukherjee who has the meatiest role comparatively and does full justice to it. Hrithik is good but suffers from Shahrukh hangover at times. Kareena's role is just an extension of what she did in K3G.

Recommended only for the sweet-film toothed.
