Not Much Of A Story
23 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Many are claiming that with 'Not a Love Story', Ram Gopal Verma is back on track but I'd take last year's 'Rann' and 'Rakhta Charitra' any day over this. This isn't among his worst and it's not a horrible film either but the story doesn't seem to go anywhere. It starts off well with an aspiring actress wandering from one audition to another until things finally begin to look up when she is chosen to play lead actress in a heroine oriented film. The movie becomes an ordinary thriller after the murder sequence and to make matters worse Ram Gopal Verma gets too playful with the camera-work and it's dreadfully irritating. He doesn't seem to have learned much from the disastrous cinematography of 'Rakhta Charitra 2' but his obvious interest in Mahie Gill's anatomy is quite apparent. The much publicized 'Rangeela Re' track lacks the magic that Asha Bhosle's voice had. Moreover it's poorly utilized in the film. Independently, the background score is interesting but in the film it's too intrusive at times and ends up making some sequences very melodramatic. The sound effect is very good in the first half but very poor in the latter half. While Deepak Dobriyal is very good, this isn't Mahie Gill's best performance. Overall, 'Not A Love Story' simply didn't work for me and I really hope Verma takes it a little easier with the camera and focus more on the content of his film.
