Melbourne-based Samir Khanna meets with an orphan, Raina, both fall in love, get married, and live harmoniously until Samir loses his job. Differences crop up between the two so much so that when Samir asks her to live with his Delhi-based parents, she refuses and stays on in Melbourne, while he re-locates to Singapore. He does fairly well financially and returns back home - only to find that Raina is about to get married to an Airport Cafe employee by the name of Aakash.Written by
How often we get to see Salman minus his childish histrionics? How often we get to see heroine not just limited for the glamor quotient? How often we get to see Sohail Khan doing a controlled acting. Not so often, right? Well apparently this film is the answer. A soft romantic melodrama without many ups and downs and still at the end leaves a smile on our face.
Rehna(Kareena) is an orphan who falls in love with Samir Khanna(Salman) and gets married to him against the wish of his parents. They are settled in Melbourne, Australia. When life takes a down stride Samir is left with no option but to send Rehna back home to Delhi and himself to leave to Singapore for getting a good job. Rehna when comes to know about his plan, stay back in Melbourne. It is her wait for Samir and what happens when another guy (Sohail as Akash) who loves Rehna, comes in between them.
The story- A feel good story which has got its own moments but still under developed. They could have worked more on this part.
Acting: - Salman as struggling, romantic (usual childish act) and cool Samir was a treat to watch. He just rocks. Kareena lives as Mrs. Khanna. She has matured a lot from the bubbly girl image. Sohail is cute and his acting is controlled. Priety Zinta was there just for a song. Deepika Padukone, in a surprise cameo, looks stunning. Rest of the cast is OK.
Music & BGM - Music by Sajid - Wajid is strictly OK. May be the younger generation will like it. BGM suited the mood of the movie.
Direction and Script - Prem R Soni's debut holds a promise for future. May be he will be the next Imtiaz Ali. I felt so. Script doesn't offer many ups and downs or dramatic situation like a usual Bollywood movie. Still it could have been edited out to avoid some unnecessary elements like Priety's cameo and all. Characterization could have been reworked as well. Also he should have taken more caring while showing Dubai as Australia in some scenes Over all a an OK attempt from a first timer.
Verdict - Will be a multiplex hit.
