After Vishwas Rao (Shahid Kapoor) is raised up by his Mother (Padmini Kolhapure), who apparently dreams for him to become a Police Inspector. However, he has different plans in mind. Vishwas wants to become a film hero.
The rain sequence starting from the time Govind (Shahid Kapoor) left the train station till reaching his hotel is a tribute to Charlie Chaplen movies, including character mannerisms, walk, situations, and music. See more »
In the 1960 scene at the hotel where Ruksar is attending her film roll out and Govind is playing in the band, Govind teases the reporter who is standing next to the other actor by pinching the actor's rear making it seem that the reporter is doing it. As the camera views flip back and forth the reporter's left arm is in the front for the rear camera views, but is in the back for the front camera views. See more »

After viewing Teri Meri Kahani I've come to 2 conclusions - Kunal Kohli is one overrated director and his ONLY film worth praising, Hum Tum, was a giant fluke.
His Mujhse Dosti Karogi was a cheesy romance that can even make Karan Johar and Suraj Bharjatiya cringe. His Fanaa was a novel idea gone haywire in the second half. His Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic was well, a joke. After 4 years, Kohli brings us another romance and he once again, doesn't fail to disappoint.
The whole concept of T.M.K. is interesting and nobody can deny that. In fact, had the writing been in place - it would have been genius. However, T.M.K. is sadly nothing more than 3 predictable love stories in one 2 and a half hour flick.
In 1960, a growing India with a growing film industry has a musician named Govind who has a dream to make it big in Bombay. There he meets film-star Ruksaar and then starts their .
In 2012, Krissh has just had a break up with his girlfriend on his birthday. That same night, he meets Radha, a up to date girl. Then starts their .
Now back to 1910, British ruled India. Javed is a charming womanizer who meets a girl who just doesn't get wooed by his antics. A sardarni by the name of Aradhna. Javed falls in love and there starts their .
Now all 3 stories start out with a bang but fiddle down very easily. Also, the misunderstandings in the movie are so dumb. Especially for the story in 1960 and 2012. To me, the best story is in 1910 but even that story isn't extraordinary.
The climax is rushed and there is no doubt. It's as if the writers don't know where to go now and just give up on the script.
The writing is sore. Kunal Kohli's shayari is very good, however. That is about it!! Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra save the film from being complete trash. Shahid is excellent in all avtaars. Of Course it's most fun to watch him as Javed. Priyanka looks amazing and acts well too. It isn't the best act from the 2, but good indeed.
Now to director Kunal Kohli. I don't hate or love the guy. I do feel that one major thing that has hurt most of his films (except Hum Tum) is the predictability level. His films don't have the X Factor. Even here, where there is a great idea in place - the boring writing messes things up. His direction is good but he fails in choosing the right screenplay.
Overall, a very bland and tasteless romance with very few moments that amaze the viewer. Dasappointing.
