Rajshri refuses to move away from its fixed pattern.
It is a very common sight in today's tech savvy world when the Old Age people refuse to understand or learn about all the newly introduced electronic gadgets and just want to be as they are. In reality they either have a fear of not being able to understand the new things or they are just not willing to bow down to the changing trends due to their own reputation or ego. And that's exactly the case with Rajshri Productions Team, which refuses to bring in or adopt the new young styles of film-making in their own projects. As a result almost all their recent releases have failed to make an impact on the new-age audience and the current LOVE U MR. KALAKAAR is also not an exception to that outcome.
The storywriter (also the director) has written a script taking his clues from the decades old bollywood plot of a love affair between a rich girl and poor boy. And therefore the audience feels 'The Yawn' right in the first few minutes of the film knowing its basic storyline. I wonder how this kind of highly outdated script was approved by the Production house in the first place. And then spending a whole lot of money on making a complete new film with some young known faces was further even more surprising.
LUMK revolves around all superficial kind of characters who are too good to be real. The typical Indian Traditional values, the helping people with the changed hearts, the highly principled characters, and the innocent love between the lead pair, everything is there in the film as the trademark feature of a Rajshri product. However the only new addition in the script is the profession of Tusshar Kapoor who happens to be a Cartoonist i.e. a Kalakaar. But other than that, all the supposed to be new scenes of a love couple sitting in the company's board room and trying to raise some big profits look childish. In fact it also seems to be funny when Amrita teaches Tusshar-the Kalakaar, the basic principles of business with the help of his colours and other tricks.
Musically the soundtrack is pretty ordinary with no particular worth remembering track in the film. Moreover the songs are only there because as per the Old School rule book, there cannot be a Bollywood movie made without some love and dance sequences. Similarly in the performance department too, you can't expect a lot from the actors when they have got nothing new to portray on the screen as per the script given to them. Therefore, no complaints from the star-cast as such. But yes, Amrita Rao should essentially work on her looks and dress codes because sometimes her beauty really gets ruined by the awful dresses she wears.
In all, LOVE U MR. KALAKAAR is just another weak project coming from the reputed house of Rajshri Films. And the reason why it once again fails to make an impact is that Rajshri refuses to move away from its fixed pattern.
