Love!!!!!.......Where???
26 July 2013 | by dineshprakashSee all my reviews

The main plot of film that is love story, which is not well established . One can fall in love at first sight but other person should have some strong reason to respond, if that person knows that the other belongs to rival family. Story is typical stereotype, two rival family but kids are in love. Screenplay and dialogues are not able to make it something different. You won't relate or sympathize with the love story. Script is full of idiotic metaphors. Rather making a scene more expressive it confuses or irritates. A serious conversation is going between father and daughter but father is scratching his back with radish. You would be confused that should you laugh or feel the intensity. A person is shot dead and a fire balloon goes in the sky to the symbol of departing soul but this balloon comes abruptly, it was not shown in a single frame earlier. A person is shot and they show blood stains in fish bowl and on the sculpture. They can take the liberty by saying that it is film then I can also take the liberty to saying all this idiotic. A Police Officer shoots a person very closely and even on his back but he misses the target!! Because the target is Hero!!! Performance wise Prateik Babber is almost blank. Amyra Dastur has only one plus point that is her charming smile. She speaks Hindi with English accent and English with forcefully stuffed local Hindi dialect. Ravi Kissan as Teeta, Prashant Narayan as Naxal Leader and Vineet Kumar Singh as Bihata are good. Music is very good. Title track is very melodious. One song "Bhgan ke rekhan.." suddenly transforms you.
