Love aaj kal is about the story of a "practical" couple who decide to part rather than maintaining a difficult long-distance relationship...
1 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The title of the story says it all, love aaj kal explores the differences between a couple of today and that of 1965. Saif and Deepika after being in a steady relationship for almost one and a half years decide to break-up just because Deepika has to go to India for her work and Saif is waiting for an offer from an American company. They happily part and stay in touch afterwards. When alone, Saif meets Rishi Kapoor and listens to his love story about how he(Rishi) fell in love with a girl in Delhi without even actually talking to her in 1965. At this point Imtiaz shows the generation gap, and the difference in the view point of a lover of 1965 and a lover of 2009. Saif gets a new girlfriend and deepika too gets a new boyfriend but something somewhere goes wrong.......they are not able to get over each other, but still deepika marries her new boyfriend. In short the movie can be watched at least once for those who are restless when it comes to romantic movies, but for those who love romantic movies should not think of missing this one. If you are expecting a comedy similar to Jab We Met or Socha Na Tha then you may get disappointed as this movie is not a hardcore comedy but there are quite a few good laughs. Imtiaz Ali has proved himself yet again, Saif's comic timing is as usual quite good and the role of Deepika suits her really good. Enjoy this movie....
