Storyline

Kuchh Luv Jaisa is a story about a house wife, Madhu (Shefali Shah), who gets ditched by her husband (Sumit Raghavan) and kids on her birthday which happens to come once in four years, Feb 29. Now Madhu is left with two options as she can either choose to sit at home and sulk, pity herself for the next four years or reinvent her boring, mundane life into an exciting one and take a grip over it. She eventually decides to head out and enjoy her birthday according to her whims and fancies. She splurges her husband's money in an unusual way. She shops for clothes, gets a makeover at an expensive parlour and above all buys a car! It is an unusually fun filled day for her until she meets Raghav (Rahul Bose), a criminal on the run who is trying to mingle with the 'normal' crowd posing as an undercover agent so that he can escape the cops. A ditzy and happy-go-lucky Madhu runs into Raghav at a coffee shop where he is planning his next move and in this process a casual conversation begins. ... Written by TOI

It seems that few films are just made to show some expenses or losses in the books.
19 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Seeing the First Look trailer of this film a few weeks before, I thought it might be a small gem featuring Rahul Bose in a similar kind of role as he had earlier done in CHAMELI and MR & MRS IYER. The film looked like made on the identical plot of Rahul meeting a completely stranger girl one fine day and they spending few hours together with her as a new experience of his life.

Perhaps Rahul may also have realized the resemblance in the story plot himself while reading the script. But still for reasons unknown he said yes to it and therefore, here he is once again meeting an unknown attractive married woman, who has just decided to be herself for one whole day forgetting all about her husband and children. (For the records he earlier met a prostitute one night in CHAMELI and later had met a South Indian Brahmin married women travelling with her child in a bus in MR & MRS IYER.)

But contrary to all my minimal expectations, the film turned out to be pretty bad, which doesn't even deserve to be compared with the gem called MR & MRS IYER. In fact it's even far inferior than the dud CHAMELI too and can be simply included in the list of worst movies released this year. With a reputed off-beat cinema favourite, Rahul Bose paired against the competent Shifaali, KUCCH LUV JAISA could have been at least a fairly enjoyable ride for the audience. But unfortunately the film becomes quite bore and uninteresting right from the moment the two actors meet each other on the screen.

In other words, after the few initial good scenes indicating towards the 'Seven Year Itch' in the family, the script looks like completely outdated and un-happening in the literal sense. It is neither an entertaining thriller moving with a fast pace nor an enlightening one making you aware of your inner being. It neither gives you any enjoyable performance to compensate for its boring content (Rahul & Shifaali), nor does it offer any soothing music or songs to cool you off (Pritam). The director Barnali Ray Shukla has made the film as if it was a School Project of a student to be essentially completed and presented in front of the teacher in the given time frame.

Hence after watching it, I had only one thought in my mind that what could have been the purpose of making this film in such an irresponsible manner. There is so much effort, pain and hard work needed from so many people to make a project reach the screen, then why such kind of Sure Flop film was planned by the production house so confidently. But then suddenly I remembered the name of its producer Vipul Shah, (also husband of Shifaali) who has earlier produced huge hits such as SINGH IS KINNG, NAMASTE London and more.

So as a conclusion, either this film was made to satisfy the inner urge of Shifaali or it was made to show some extra expenses or losses in the account books as per the normal business procedure of a Big Production house. In any case the victim once again remains the poor viewer.
