This is what a great inspiration is...copycat directors could learn from this the difference between a ripoff and inspiration
10 August 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Ram Gopal Verma does a superb job of creating one of the finest inspired movies. He's mentioned in numerous interviews about the source being one of his favorite films. Mind you, I said inspiration, NOT ripoff. Copycat directors could learn from this example what the difference is between an inspiration and a ripoff. Unfortunately, Verma has been more recently pulled into the ripoff wagon too (e.g. Sarkar).

Back to 'Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya', Rajat Mukherjee gives a fine directorial debut. The story can be seen as a character study of three people but that does not give the plot less importance. The characters are brilliantly defined and the plot is coherent and keeps you engaged.

Chandan Arora's editing is quite impressive. Although maybe the first song could have been left out. Even though the main plot in the screenplay is quite intense, the humour element provides some comic relief (thanks to Rajpal Yadav).

Fardeen Khan, though does not exactly give a great performance, one can see that the actor is trying and he deserves credit for that. Sonali Kulkarni is bubbly, elegant and adorable. She does her part very well. But, 'Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya' belongs to Urmila Matondkar. This is one of the finest performances of a complex character and Urmila is flawless as an obsessive borderliner. She seems to play the part naturally. She balances her non-verbal expressions (expressive eyes, awkward gait, tone of voice etc) and her dialogue delivery is superb. It really makes one appreciate the art of acting. Suresh Oberoi is very good as the father.

Writer Rajat Mukherjee deserves credit for creating such human characters. We see that Jai is a nice person but he does have the attitude of constantly flirting with colleagues, Geeta is the loving wife but she doubts Jai's fidelity and Ria who even though isn't mentally stable, has a light side and she was quite happy when she was modelling for Jai but her thoughts were quite black and white (typical thinking of a borderliner) and she was very stubborn.

Music is impressive. Though the first song is good and introduces Fardeen's character, it could be avoided to shorten the film but it's not necessarily a bad addition. Urmila again dances mesmerizingly in Kambakt Ishq. Alisha's Roundey is flawlessly sung and dictate the thoughts of Ria very well.

All in all, this is one of the finest drama-thrillers and surely worth a watch because of the fine screenplay, excellent performances, impressive direction, good music and it's worth the time.
