You are here to tell your story and act as your character! Rk is back!
27 November 2015 | by (Ahmedabad, India) – See all my reviews

Dil Ka Bhanwar Kahe Sun Saathiya, Chhup Na Dupatte Me Tu O Chhaliyaa... That's it! The entire film was made on this basis. The moral of the movie is -Not to hide yourself, and do whatever your heart wants to do. People, who judge you and tell you that you are mad, don't panic, you are not here to live their characters. You are here to tell your own story, to live as you want, to act as you wish. Never kill your inner child! Imtiaz Ali is my 'the most favorite director'. So, may be you find this review bias. But, this is my opinion, and I just loved the movie. All the Ranbir Kapoor fans out there, will surely love this character, Ved & even Don. As Roy and Bombay Velvet didn't go well, I was not sure about this. But the house-full show speaks a lot! Nobody can plays Ved like him. Welcome back RK! Dipika's pair with Ranbir is off course fabulous. But, I don't find any scene of her in which she is doing an outhouse acting. She is obviously good, but, after I saw her in Piku, I was in search of more from her. Piyush Mishra acts like a boss. Little Ved is a perfect cast as he looks like Ranbir. Others are suitable. Special mention for the rikshawwala who sings Wat wat song! No complain in music, as the composer is Rahman. Lyrics has been penned by Irshad Kamil. To feel the music, particularly in Imtiaz's films, I don't listen the songs without watching the movie. And this helps me to reach at the highest level of happiness which a song can be able to give. Heer is my favorite. Punjabi folk singers rock the scene. Matargashti is a fun song by Mohit Chauhan. Alka Yagnik's mesmerizing voice is too good with Arijit in Agar Tum Saath Ho. Tu Koi Aur Hai is what the perfect song has to be or you can say the main song of the movie. Chali Kahani and Safarnama are listenable. I miss Anil Mehta, the D.O.P. in all previous projects of Ali. I don't know why the camera has been given to Ravi instead of him. Though Ravi has done a superb job. In my favorite scene, I would say, the stairs in the song Matargashti. Even whole Corsica is eye freshener. But, then also, the magic of Anil Mehta is missing. Film's concept is actually came from Imtiaz's brother Akiv Ali. Though, Imtiaz has written it superbly. There are so many scenes in which I could relate myself. The major one is talking with ourselves through mirror. Every Imtiaz Ali film has some new ways to describe the past activities, this time too he brings a cool idea for that. One thing I noticed that because of doing some years in theater, particularly the struggling days, somehow the love for the theater is still alive in Imtiaz, and that's the reason why he chooses the stage play act in the movie. Another thing I noticed that after the films like Rockstar & Highway, where the story was not ending, Ali has changed the end of this movie, like he had done before in Jab We Met & Love Aaj Kal. So, on the whole, whatever critics or RJs are saying, watch it if you like Imtiaz Ali's movies. Kapoor's fantastic performance will never let your mood of. If you think you are not doing what you like, or if you are not be able to find out yourself, then please watch this and get inspire. The ten minutes long story which Ved tells to his family in the climax steals the show. It's okay to live a life that others don't understand. You are here to live as you want, not as someone else wants. Just be you, and the right things will start to happen. Find the reason why you are born, and then go for it. At the initial stage, you may witness some troubles, some negative incidents, but, just don't stop your journey, don't try to change yourself. Just be consistence, and the happy times will surely come!
