Fun movie!!
1 August 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Love aaj kal is a story of a 'practical couple' who mutually decide to break up due to their career ambitions. In an amicable break up they throw a party to celebrate their separation. However they keep in touch and eventually realise they cannot let go of the other person. Simultaneously running is the story of a much previous generation and their love story. In this case, love came first, then came ambition. The contrasting notions of love between the two generations reminds us what we are missing out in this quest of proffessionalism and individuality. On the whole it is a very funny movie with even the serious scenes making you laugh. My friends and I fell in love with the 1965 love story of Veer and Harleen. Imtiaz Ali directed the yesteryears in a superbly manner and Saif Ali Khan looked, acted and completely became a very attractive younger version of Rishi Kapoor. It was the best romance I have seen in years. Harleen played by a new comer, (whose real name is missing from every website for some reason) takes you back to the innocent days where girls had a straight parting and a long braid and wore full sleeved simple clothes. I absolutely loved her, and she looked like a million dollars in her simple attire. On the other hand, Saif Ali Khan as a young hip Jai was someone we have seen before in Hum Tum, Kal ho na ho and Salaam Namaste. However because the man never ages he looks good doing it! Deepika Padukone looked like a giant in most of the scenes. Moreover her make-up was average. Her strong Hindi accent is a little putting off because she ruins funny dialogues with it. If I had to change one thing about this movie, it would be Deepika Padukone. She seemed too young and awkward. However with such a good script, great songs and direction everyones flaws are well hidden and what you come back home is wanting a little more of each of the love stories because you want to know "what happened next??!!??!?!"
