Very romantic, like a dream.
6 March 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Go for this movie without any expectations, then you will like it.

This movie is taken like a dream. All the scenes are shot in an unnatural color and contrast and all the dialogues are unnatural as well. Many of friends who like normally those movies which have more natural touch, did not like this movie at all. But if you are ready to take this movie as a sequence of sweet, soft and dream like scenes, then this is surely a movie for you. Trust me you will like it.

The best scene of the movie is when Katrina reveals about her love to Ranbir, he gets shock of his life time and he keeps his hand on his chest and falls down from the balcony. This scene is shot with one of the best camera angle I have seen. I just loved the scene.

The background score and songs are really brilliant. For awards, if they consider those who make the songs close to the mood of the movie, then Pritam, Salim Sulaiman, Irshad Kamil, Ashiesh Pandit and Hard Kaur really reserve recognition for this work. The songs and background score are very well mixed with movie.

Katrina Kaif performed her role very nicely. Always, when it comes to a doll like character, Katrina is a safe bet (as long as there is not much emotions to be expressed). Ranbir also did the role quite good. But I some how have a problem with his body shape. Since he is having very thin waste, he looks like a triangle pointing down with a head on it, in some dresses. Either he should reduce the mass on his hand muscles to like thinner on top also or he should be careful with his dress selection. Other actors were also OK in the movie. Nobody did anything wrong.

Only one scene which I did not like at all in this movie was the scene in which all these guys trying to convince Upen Patel's father for his marriage using a lot of blood. That scene was quite boring and irritating and was very long as well.

I am going to give a 8 on 10 for this movie, since I really liked it. I have an advice, try to see this movie only if you are a person who does not look for real life inspirations in movies, other wise you are going to hate this movie like anything.
