Tara Ra "Hum Tum" Rum Rum
8 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee had a magnificent chemistry in Hum Tum. This one is just an unsuccessful attempt to repeat the magic of their previous collaboration. But this film is awfully uninspiring and the story of a family who goes bankrupt is annoyingly repetitive. Here the light romance turns into a cheesy melodrama and the director seems to be confused enough to not know what to do. There are of course touching moments, and the songs are good, but the portrayal of a family in times of trouble is terribly handled and is full of regular age-old clichés. Saif and Rani do their best but can't save the flawed script. The dialogues are cheap and overly emotional, and the reality nonsense is pathetic. All in all Siddharth Anand did not recreate Salaam Namaste, and Saif-Rani did not recreate Hum Tum.
