Storyline

A statue in a town's square narrates to a journalist the story of 9th standard-failed, unemployed, trouble-maker and stutterer Premshankar Sharma. Premshankar, cons Mr. Pinto into buying a dilapidated flat to pay for expenses of the Happy Club over which he presides, much to the disapproval of his restaurateur father, Shivshankar, who wants him to wed Shakuntala Mishra. Premshankar's life will undergo many changes after he falls in love with Pinto's adopted daughter, Jenny. He believes that she also loves him, and even helps her to elope after her parents force her to wed wealthy Tony. Premshankar ends up in despair when he finds out that Jenny's true love is Canada-based Rahul, the son of wealthy politician, Pitambar Jalan. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Cute Movie
10 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First, I did not expect much from this movie to be honest. I was pleasantly surprised. Ranbir does a great job playing a guy who is sweet and simple and is love with Kartina Kaif. The film is different because it has no crude jokes and yet it is humorous.

The film is set in a sleepy Indian town where Prem (Ranbir) is the president of his failing "Happy Club" , which ends up helping couples in love. He meets Katrina Kaif and falls for her, but he does not know that Katrina already is in love with Upen Patel. He does all he can to help her to marry Upen. Watch the film for the ending.

In between there are witty dialogs, very funny scenes, in special a scene where Prem goes dancing with Jenny (Katrina Kaif). Prem already starts dancing to which Jenny says, the dance has not yet started, while Prem replies, "I am not dancing , this is just warm up !" .

A real rib tickler, you will watch this for a pleasant time at the theater. It is a surprise at a time when most Bolly comedies are really filled with double meaning jokes and crude humor, Ajab Prem .., does a really nice job to entertain people.

The story has its flaws, yet Ranbir manages to pull through and prove he is the biggest rising star in Bollywood. The screenplay was a bit loose but the cinematography was superb. The songs were very well sung and acted.

In all a nice movie. My rating 7/10.
