Seriously not a product you would expect from somebody who has strings
of hits to his credit namely Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Yes Boss, Chalte
Chalte and my favourite Phir Bhi Dil Hain Hindustani. Clearly the midas
touch is missing. After watching the first few reels, one can walk out
and confidently write a review (like me here!). The idea is pretty
stale probably belonging to the roaring 70's (Sanjay Chhel, how did
you manage to market the lousy stuff?).
Aziz Mirza's Raju Ban Gaya & Yes Boss contributed towards numero uno status for SRK and with the same hope Shahid Kapur gives his best.
Hey Baby, you need some serious advise on fashion ie. Vidya Balan at her awful best.
Vishal Malhotra as a side-kick is becoming monotonous in his la Rajendranath roles.
Om Puri is wasted.
The lucky mascots donning the narrators and fortune teller hats don't help either ie. SRK and Juhi.
Music by Pritam is good with a few catchy fusion mix numbers.
There is no good reason to base the story in Canada. Any city from India would do. Old age home idea is plagiarised from Lage Raho Munnabhai.
PS: Will I finish the rest of the movie? Hope not!
If Ur a fan of Aziz Mirza films and used to like YES BOSS, RAJU BAN
GAYA GENTLEMEN then this is an old wine in new bottle
The film is set in Canada and is nothing even watchable
If u like romantic films, this may work for u
The film is a remake of JUST MY LUCK but the indianised version is like the 90's romantic films which u have finished watching
The romance is too ordinary, though the confrontation towards the end is good but the ending is again, mundane
Aziz Mirza shows nothing great in this film Music is good, some songs are nice
Shahid Kapur had evolved as an actor since JAB WE MET but in this film he continuously hams like SRK and apes him but gets better towards the end Vidya looks too old to be paired opp Shahid though they are of the same age, her wardrobe is damn pathetic and her acting well nothing great in this role actually so can't blame Juhi is alright Om Puri and Himani are great Vishal is as usual, a jerk in another seen type before role
This Saturday night I got to see this movie, and I am very thankful to the new love birds of bollywood, Shahid kapoor and Vidya balan that they have made it. Both have shown that they really have some nice chemistry not only behind the screen but also on the screen. Movie start with "kismat" and ends with the same. The best part of movie is that it raises a nice cause besides the entertainment, it has a really nice massage for all the businessman and even common people. Songs are really nice too. I thoroughly enjoy the movie. There are some scenes in the movie with Juhie Chawala that I don't like very much, but overall this movie has blossomed very nicely. Shahid kapoor is once again a true nice innocent guy in the movie. You will worth your money as well time, specially when seen with your girlfriend, you would get certain credit. In the end I will give a 9 to this movie because of comedy, charm, entertainment and a real good massage delivered in the movie.
One of the most boring and torturing movies of the decade. If you want
to waste your money and time, go watch it. The movie hardly connects
with the viewers.
There is hardly any chemistry between Shahid and Vidya. In fact Shahid looked like a kid in presence of Vidya.
The whole movie could be predicted from very beginning. And there was nothing fresh or new in this movie. The humor was far from comic.
And you would feel like crying. Only thing good in the movie was the costumes of Shahid and the shooting location i.e Canada. Other than these there was nothing in this movie worth watching.
fun filled film...good for a Sunday evening a few things which i
thought the director missed..and a few things that could have been
1. the film starts with shah rukh khan's narration...but when he comments on the house number of the character Raj malhotra..he says NO.626...but clearly..the house number displayed is NO.617..lol 2. repetition of events...two many meeting scenes..with Mr.Gill 3. repetition of dialogues...for the lead character's friend.. 4. costume and hair do for vidya balan could have been better...some times you wonder which one of the two has longer hair...vidya/shahid 5. the plot in canada was unnecessary...and a Indian community centre with chronic patients..in canada.
anyways...its watchable...i took a British, non-Hindi speaking friend to watch this film...and she enjoyed it and even found it funny. 6.5/10
Yes... by far the freshest couple to hit the screen in recent times...
different...yet fresh.... initial chemistry does exist...whether its
shahid's boyish charms, or vidya's believable eyes..... whatever it may
be.... but it has the signs of a new sparkling chemistry....my family
seems to disagree with me.... but i am convinced that this pair can
hold good for some time..... the story works.... struggling fresher...
needs a little luck... meets a girls by chance... who seems to be
getting the luck he needs........ """lucky lips... are always
kissing""""...well, no kiss in this one, but their eyes say enough...
If you're a Torontonian, then there is a high possibility that you will not like the film. Yes the movie is shot in Toronto so that should be interesting enough right? But that's where you are wrong. The film is shot all over Toronto, parts of Niagara, India, and a city or two I'm sure. Firstly, any single person in Toronto does not live in a two story house by him or herself. And if you are going to design a house, why not even get a glimpse of what a house in Toronto looks like. The staircase was so Indian, the lamps were Indian, and the fact that you showed a one story house from outside and two stories inside was SO Indian! Moreover Adelaide street where Mr. Shahid Kapoor lived does not have houses. It is highly commercial and totally packed with no rooms for houses. Secondly, Vidya Balan is sitting at Sheldon Lookout and her waving friend sits across the lake to her. This is not possible because the rocks she's sitting on face a huge lake, and the sky line of Toronto. And if someone Is sitting on the other side, unless you have bionic eyes, you cannot see them. Lastly, the two love birds go for a walk in Toronto, at Harbour front, then walking around King Street, then Bay street, but when the song is nearly ending, they are actually at Niagara falls which is two hours away from Toronto! But the audience is made to believe its all still Toronto! If you are going to use an outside location, at least get its geography right. Toronto is flooded with Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshi's and Srilankan's all of whom are big on Bollywood. But this much error in presentation of a movie by such a well known director is just sad. The movie is okay. If you have time to spare watch Jab We Met again. This one is a pass by.
I feel so sorry for those who seen this rubbish movie on the cinema
because I got to see it for free in my friend's house and I hated it
right from start to end. I cannot explain how glad I am that I did not
take a trip to the cinema and take money out of my pocket for the
ticket then wait for the next show; otherwise I would've jumped into a
bottomless pit. There was no story although it is a rip off of Just My
Luck. The whole movie was so boring that I felt like ripping my arm out
and constantly bash my head with it.
The music isn't even good, the only catchy song is Aai Pappi and the rest of them do not jar and lacks instant recall after the first hearing. It is directed by the awful director Aziz Mirza who also made movies like Chalte Chalte & Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani which were specifically made for the brainless audience. Overall my luck turned out to be good and bad. Good because I did not see it on the cinema and bad because I saw it.
Another romantic story. Not the best of executions with a dragging
second half. lots of (expected) turn of events. This summarizes Kismat
Connection. Movie starts of well with Shahid being a winner in his
college but a loser in the big bad world of business because his Luck
seems to have run out. However situation changes when Vidhya enters the
movie. However there is a catch with her engagement and her dedication
towards community center of old people. Shahid lies loves and does all
things to keep his "Lucky charm" with him however things end up in a
Shahid Kapoor acts well but vidhya balan is almost like his elder sister or something. Seems like a big misfit of cast.Supporting cast is good and has a few hilarious moments. Juhi chawla is wasted and given a poor role with even a poorer execution. Overall atime pass movie if you are free and have nothing else to do worthwhile. Go with low expectations and you might enjoy the film.
(This review is an open letter to Shahid who is the main lead of this
Hey shahid what happened to you dude?? I missed you a lot in this movie because I thought it was going to be you but it turned out be an imitation of shahrukh. Everything looks so cute from the top but logic doesn't apply. Like your pairing with Vidya Balan. You look too young for her and in some scenes you both are like chalk and cheese.
You acted good in some scenes but the dialogues were so silly like when you tried to make karan and priya happy by taking both sides. And where did you find Juhi Chawla who went over the top in almost all her scenes. May be you thought that we would laugh at some of the predictable jokes. Maybe you thought that we would be happy to believe that Priya finds "true love" in you. Maybe you thought that we would like the way your luck flip flops predictably. Maybe you thought that your speech in the movie was inspiring for the audience. Whatever it was, you made a wrong decision for your "Kismat" as this movie didn't "Konnect" at all with us.
Anyways Id like to gift these two stars to you. Keep them safe as a lucky charm. As for Aziz Mirza and the writers of this movie, the less the said the better. Best of "luck" for the future.
Regards, Yours "fate"fully A well wisher
