Harry is an industrialist who loves his daughter Bijlee, and the bond they share with Harry's man friday, Matru. Bijlee's plan to wed the son of a politician, however, brings twists and turns in the lives of Matru, Bijlee and Mandola.
The Kapoors have always wanted their only son Rahul (Imran Khan) to be a go-getter and have groomed him appropriately since childhood. But when Rahul is sacked from his new job in Las Vegas around Christmas, he is compelled to visit a psychotherapist to give vent to his insecurities. There he meets Riana Braganza, a hair stylist who has recently broken up with her boyfriend. Riana and Rahul bond over drinks and paint the town red on Christmas eve. The next morning, they discover that during their drunken spree last night, they got married. They decide to annul the marriage but due to Riana's inability to pay rent, her landlord evicts her and she lands up with Rahul again. Then a friendship develops between them over the course of the next few days which includes a trip to India. Written by
Post Jab We Met, we've had a bunch of chirpy love stories release. Most of them had the same old concept of rich kids (either one) falling in love, then breaking up, and finally ending up together (Anjaana Anjaani, Break Ke Baad, etc). From the trailer, this pretty much looked like one of those films. There were even rumors of it being a Hollywood rip-off. But, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is nothing like those idiotic flicks, nor is it a rip-off. It's a very cute little movie with some excellent, if not brilliant performances.
Directed by débutant Shakun Batra, EMAET has its heart in the right place. It is not one of those typical love stories (I would in fact not categorize it as a love story). It's more of a lighthearted comedy with friendship as its backdrop. Imran Khan is getting better as an actor, Kareena, well, is just gorgeous, and their chemistry is great. Perfect casting, decent music, excellent cinematography, slick screenplay, what more do you need to make a good feature film??
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu might be predictive, but is a very well executed movie with a refreshing feel to it. Some might not like it, but I did, and suggest you go watch it.
