11 November 2009 | by (Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Well I didn't expect too much from this film. Its a romantic comedy for sure. We could see that from the trailer. These days I don't expect too much from a Hindi film.They have a huge star casts, excellent location, beautifully pictured songs, but they lack in story and editing. But i can say after "Love Aaj Kal", this year APKGK is a treat to watch. I am not saying its a perfect film, but its a pleasure for heart. If you want to have a good laugh then APKGK is the film for you.

After a long time I found that in a Hindi film which is not trying to portray its surroundings real. You know from the first scene that its a fiction. R.K Santoshi made it very clear.Its a movie where anything can happen and they don't want to make you believe its real. Its up to you to believe! I am not going to compare it with Andaz Apna Apna. It was one of a kind.

There is no Amir Khan and Salman Khan in APKGK instead we have this Ranvir Kapoor with amazing comic timing! He was superb in the film! Reminded me of Hrithik Roshan in Kaho Na....! Ranvir was so fresh and his chemistry with Katrina Kaif was wonderful! Bollywood have a new on screen couple who compliments each other. And I figured it out later that there is no romantic scenes (except two songs and a conversation in dream!) between the two, but they looked amazing whenever they were together.

And the nicest thing about this movie is its decency! Mr. Santoshi (he is also the co writer) didn't use "sex" or "homosexuality" for comedy! Bollywood should learn!

Songs were really nice! Pritam did a good job! I fell in love with the song "Tera Hone Laga Ho" and "Tu Jane Na". Katrina looked really pretty and real for the first time.

It was a nice film with an amazing cast(including the supporting actors, except Upen Patel!). Amazing locations (Goa and Ooty looked awesome)and amazing punches! Its a comedy after all!
