A Bollywoodish First First Love

Author: Chrysanthepop from Fraggle Rock
9 April 2011

Manmohan Singh's 'Pehla Pehla Pyar' (a.k.a. First First Love) is pretty much the typical Bollywood fairy tale from the 90s. A naive and spoilt Princess Sapna (Tabu) runs away from her mansion, which is under the strict supervision of her stepmother and a greedy uncle (Amrish Puri). On the way, she meets a fat aspiring musician (Rishi Kapoor). After some supposed comedic banters they fall in love. Things take a turn once princess Sapna returns to her mansion. Stepmom and evil Uncle have a scheme. Cute Tabu definitely looks and acts the part but her costumes are quite funny. What's even (unintentionally) funnier than her absurd costumes is Rishi Kapoor's dance. His steps and lack of grace is one of the most amusing parts of 'Pehla Pehla Pyar'. Kader Khan provides some nice comic relief and the late Amrish Puri entertains again as a villain. The soundtrack is fairly good (for a 90s Bollywood soundtrack). The songs are upbeat and catchy even though the lyrics exaggerate. Anyway, 'Pehla Pehla Pyar' doesn't offer anything new but it is fun in a campy sort of way and Tabu looks adorable and hot.
