Worst Movie😡😡😡
shreyaverma-4755314 February 2020
It's a toruture of 2 hours 20 minutes.Worst storyline, Same concept as first one. First love aaj kal was far more better than this. Weak storyline, Poor Screenplay, Bad Acting, average music. Kartik's acting is too bad to handle. Sara Ali Khan is worst in her emotional scenes. Average acting of sara. Only Randeep Hudda's acting is watching. Guys please don't waste your money. It is a total waste of money. Please don't go 🙏🙏.

Bad casting for a complex drama
Would have loved the movie if actors who could perform the intense emotional scenes were cast instead. The story from the 90s was shown beautifully.

Complete waste.. mixture of nonsense
pnutb14 February 2020
#LoveAajKalReview Kartik Aaryan after Sonu k titu ki sweety is giving back to back flop movies.. His choices are AWFUL.. It's like Kartik Aaryan's life is zero without luv ranjan.. Imtiaz Ali has lost it and he is the king of boredom amongst directors.. he should retire.. save your money or else donate it to a army fund.. sit at home and enjoy watching TV!!

Love Aaj Kal speaks to the human condition
alexanderedwardwong16 February 2020
Warning: Spoilers
Love Aaj Kal is a beautiful, complex movie and as a psychologist, I love it for so many reasons. It is a movie ahead of its time, that's deeply psychological and real. I love that the conflict is internal and deep. The underlying issue is Zoe's discomfort with intimate relationships (what psychologists call an avoidant attachment style). She cries after having sex with Veer and is afraid of the deep connection she's feeling with him. She says she's organized her entire life/work to avoid these feelings. As she dances at clubs, she's relieved her date and her have no chemistry, and so, because of its chances of going nowhere intimate she can continue to date him. Her mother emphasizes Zoe's self-reliance and the need to be independent. Zoe is a very relatable character because 25% of the population is Zoe: 25% of people have an avoidant attachment style. The drama comes from how as Zoe feels deeper and deeper feelings for Veer her gut tells her intimacy is dangerous, and so she pulls away from it. This movie doesn't waste my time with contrived obstacles. The drama is a serious intractable one, about Zoe wrestling with all these mixed internal signals. Zoe oscilates between approach and avoidance of Veer. Zoe's avoidant attachment style makes her deeply uncomfortable in the relationship and leads to her breaking up with Veer, but she also has positive feelings for him. Veer has a secure attachment style because he is comfortable with intimate relationships, commitment, and is responsive. Zoe has never met anyone like Veer before. As she gets closer and closer to Veer, her gut tells her this is wrong and she pulls away from it. This movie is not about the fight between choosing a career or a relationship, it's about Zoe's battle to make sense of these mixed messages, her siding with her gut (to leave Veer), and ultimately coming to realize that her gut is wrong. She is not secure by the end of the movie, but she now putting herself on the path to become secure. She still has issues with interdependence, but the impulses she once squelched, the deep feelings and relationship she has with Veer, she now accepts as valid information, strong enough to overcome her avoidance. Abandoning one's attachment style is no trivial matter. Many people do not change their attachment styles, and because of it struggle with their romantic relationships their whole life, throughout adulthood. These people are as Veer notes, in a relationship but not fully in it. Or for them relationships are like a revolving door of people, brief relationships that never get too deep or far. Zoe's reactions and emotions are spot-on. They were all appropriate, and anyone who says Zoe is over-reacting or Sara is over-acting, doesn't understand how fundamental our attachment styles are to our sense of self, our sense of what feels right and true about ourselves in relationships, and to go against them feels scary and wrong, even if going against them means we actually give ourselves a chance at having a meaningful, deep, satisfying relationship. Imtiaz was right to come back and make Love Aaj Kal, it was a massive improvement over the first one. This movie feels timeless because it really captures the psychological complexities of navigating relationships, and the issues Zoe and Veer / Raghu and Leena face are eternal human issues - not actually specific to 1990s or 2020s. The issues of what feels right in a relationship, of how deeply you can connect with someone, of integrating mixed messages from your gut, your family, society about independence/interdependence/monogamy/lust, of committing to your partner (commitment is a behavior) - these will forever be apart of the human condition, and I'm happy that Imtiaz shows that in the love stories of both times. The mentorship/friendship between Raghu and Zoe is much better than in the original love aaj kal, as is the telling of the subplot love story between Raghu and Leena compared to the original love aaj kal's subplot love story. The acting is excellent, Sara, Kartik, everyone. There are so many beautiful moments in this film, and Imtiaz weaves it all together masterfully. This is what good movies do, they make you feel and they illuminate truths about human experience. I congratulate Sartik and Imtiaz for seeing what so many cannot.

Don't massacre genres like this
arkasuperstar15 February 2020
The movie is pathetic without any clear message. Imitiaz Ali should stop and focus on what he thinks he should convey. Pathetic screenplay with below par performance by Sara and Karthik Aryan. Wish I can get refund. Worst film of 2020 yet!

#FinalVerdict

An Imtiaz Ali film is awaited with bated breath. When you have films like ROCKSTAR (2011), JAB WE MET (2007) and HIGHWAY (2014) to your credit, every step you take, every move you make comes under a microscopic view. Obviously, the expectations from Love Aaj Kal are colossal. Given a title like Love Aaj Kal, the film ought to evoke strong feelings, principally towards the second hour. But the emotional moments fail to evoke any emotion. In fact, your heart doesn't pine for the lovers and that is why Love Aaj Kal fails to create any effect.

Without an iota of doubt, you are hypnotized by the initial scenes in Love Aaj Kal, but unfortunately, it's not the screenplay that magnetizes you. The chemistry between Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan is piping hot and makes you speechless. Surely, Love Aaj Kal is not an easy film to write and execute. Like its predecessor, it has two stories set in different eras, run parallel, but have a similar end. Sadly, the script is riddled with cliches and flaws, which makes Love Aaj Kal a mundane love story that talks of love and heartache. Director Imtiaz Ali is known for his imaginative and inventive take on love stories, but the problem with Love Aaj Kal is that it starts off most impressively, has some terrific moments in between, but the writing gets so erratic and incoherent as it heads towards the conclusion that you wonder, am I really watching an Imtiaz Ali film?

With a capable raconteur like Imtiaz Ali at the helm, one expects Love Aaj Kal to be notches above the stuff we've been subjected to in the past. But the film falters after an impressive start, after you are introduced to the pivotal characters in the story. The writing (Imtiaz Ali) gets erratic as you delve deeper and deeper. The second half is stretched without valid reason and that makes Love Aaj Kal a tedious watch. Imtiaz Ali fails to outshine his previous works. Sure, he explores the emotional depths with immense compassion and also draws bravura performances from the central characters. But every film depends on a watertight screenplay and Love Aaj Kal stumbles and fumbles in this department.

In a nutshell, Love Aaj Kal suffers from a plot that appears confusing and is convoluted for an avid cinemagoer. Imtiaz Ali's direction fails to complement the screenplay and vice versa. The movie is not a regular run of the mill flick and the proceedings are clearly aimed at the classes rather than the masses. Also, music has always been a mainstay in all of Imtiaz Ali's films. But, sadly, in Love Aaj Kal, it is otherwise. Despite Pritam at the helm of things, the music, sadly, is plain ordinary and does not help in lifting the proceedings. Amit Roy's cinematography is top-notch. Every frame is picture-perfect, a painting on celluloid. Dialogue (Imtiaz Ali) deserve special mention. They are straight out of life. If any film stands on a weak foundation (writing), even 1.30 hours seem never-ending. The lethargic pacing and uneven editing (Aarti Bajaj) also mar the overall impact. The film could have been better had the editing been watertight.

Kartik Aaryan carries the most difficult parts with remarkable ease. Sure, we've seen him as the cool, urban guy in several films, but this one's the most demanding role and he glides into the character effortlessly. Sara Ali Khan looks ethereal. More importantly, she acts very, very well. This should be the turning point in her career. Randeep Hooda puts his heart and mind into every project he chooses to perform in. He is a stunner. Arushi Sharma does well in a small, but significant role.

To sum up, Love Aaj Kal is too confusing a film to be understood and enjoyed by the general public. It does not live up to the confidence and expectations from the otherwise very skilled and accomplished film-maker Imtiaz Ali. Once the initial euphoria settles down, it'll be difficult for the film to sustain. A KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT! Imtiaz Ali's streak of flops continues!

Love Aaj Kal 2 Adolescent Movie Review by Nitin Atmaram Sisode
NitinAtmaramSisode13 February 2020
Love Aaj Kal 2 Review by Nitin Atmaram Sisode :- Zoe is a confounded character, who has a five-year intend to make cheerful life and have her own organization, before she settles in a serious relationship. While Sara Ali Khan is the correct age to play Zoe, she misses the mark concerning convincingly pulling off the multifaceted nature of her torch and furiously free character. Sara has an overwhelming screen looks and seems flawless, yet her exhibition doesn't exactly make you pull for Zoe. Kartik Aaryan is acceptable as the innocent Raghu, whose change from a meek lovelorn little towner to a major city Casanova, is reasonable. Even Kartik doesn't find a workable pace than compliantly chase after a mind-blowing love and be available to her no matter what. Randeep Hooda leaves an enduring impression even with lesser screen time. Wearing a handlebar mustache and fresh cloth shirts, the underestimated on-screen character looks very spruce. He is very similar to Rishi Kapoor's character in the first. It is his story that is unmistakably all the more fascinating, relatable and engaging. Ali utilizes clear tones and excellent sceneries to reproduce Raghu's love story with Leena played by debutante Arushi Sharma, who conveys viably. The flashback story is intruded on too often to oblige the film's non-straight account. While the film's sincerely story is easygoing in its methodology, there are scarcely any light minutes.

Love Aaj Kal decides to praise complex characters and useless connections, with the widespread feeling of love at its center. It makes some passionate minutes en route, yet doesn't exactly leave you hypnotized. The short runtime is another in addition to with a fascinating first-half, however an anticipated second-half. The film's soundtrack is good in tune that enhances the narrating. Ali makes it significant by indicating us the differentiation between customary community love that was straightforward yet troublesome versus the contemporary urban love that is unpredictable and failed. Imtiaz Ali portrays the 2020 Love Aaj Kal in a similar arrangement as his directorial in 2009 by a similar name. The love stories are new with various arrangement of contentions that change with time.
