Melbourne-based Samir Khanna meets with an orphan, Raina, both fall in love, get married, and live harmoniously until Samir loses his job. Differences crop up between the two so much so that when Samir asks her to live with his Delhi-based parents, she refuses and stays on in Melbourne, while he re-locates to Singapore. He does fairly well financially and returns back home - only to find that Raina is about to get married to an Airport Cafe employee by the name of Aakash. Written by
I rarely give Salman Khan movies 2 star rating, believe me it was hard!(I never give them more then 1 normally) I watched this movie just after I finished watching "Blue" so I maybe bit biased as "Blue" was one of THE worst film of this year.
Anyway back to the review. The story revolves around two people meeting & falling in love and ultimately getting married. It is only then the real story begins and over next two hours or so we find out how the global recession affected the couple as Kareena chooses to work but her greedy banker! husband just wants to pamper her, but can't afford to, thus he sets a journey of a thousand miles to go where every man goes (finds a work), and bring home the all mighty dollar, so that he can buy his wife a posh home. And it is during this thousand mile journey where the two hearts are separated and only connected with pay phone (She can't afford to have a mobile phone) on which she must press 1 four times to call outside Australia without breaking the bank. And during this period we learn about long distance relationship with few funny moments and the same old Bollywood ending.
In conclusion I would like to say it has good performance by the cast, but big let down by the story. Compare to "Wanted" where you could chop off first half of the movie without any damage to the story or plot line but you are rewarded in second half, with this one the plot line just fails to peek up or commends any attention from the audience, it was like the cast were held at gunpoint to do this movie. But this is defiantly better than "God Tussi Great Ho" or "Yuvvraaj" but is it worth watching it in cinema? definitely not you are better off buying a cheap second hand copy for maybe £2-£3 max pounds.
