A golden opportunity gone wasted and mowed by weak script
26 June 2012 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

Teri Meri Kahani , based on Taiwanese hit Three Times, was a rom-com love story that could have been crafted better but unfortunately was mowed down by weak direction and poor script.

Teri Meri Kahani explores the story of three generation with one common link in all the narratives– LOVE. The film starts of with the train sequence in 1960 Bombay between a struggling musician Govind and film star Rukhsar meeting on a 1st class coach. The film straight away progresses to the current generation of Facebook and Twitter where Krish meets Radha on a busy street. As the film breaks for the interval , we are swung back to the pre-partition period , where the lover boy Javed juggles between local woman eventually falling in love with conservative yet rebellious Aradhna.

Now , I have been a big fan of HUM TUM (also directed by Kunal Kohli) and was expecting the same heart-warming , emotional touching love story this time. To my surprise, I was disappointing with this film. Even though Kunal Kohli had wonderful story to tell, but the lethargic pace and superficial drama could not salvage the film from falling into the pit. Whenever Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra meets, it always seems so over the top as if they were meant to meet each other and not through natural means. I like the first story in early 1960 in Bombay more because of the fantastic art direction and good CGI recreating the early Bombay so beautifully. The second story was superficial combined with over-the- top acting by Priyanka Chopra. But it is the pre-partition story which made me sit back and enjoy the story. Never the less , the film is full of loopholes and boring drama which sometimes makes you scratch your hair. As mentioned before script is poor along with weak music. Cinematography is eye-catching with fantastic efforts made in sets to re-create the 1960s of Bombay culture. Background score is hopeless and so is Priyanka's acting . She is the same actress who got national award … can you believe it . The only silver lining in this dull film is superb acting by Shahid Kapoor. I think it is high time we stand and notice this actor's talent. He was the best among three characters as Javed Qadri. His sher-shayari was just amazing along with his dialogue delivery.

So , overall , a golden opportunity gone wasted . Rather than concentrating on technical aspects of the film , Kunal Kohli should have made sincere efforts in the direction and screenplay area. But if you are big fan of Shahid Kapoor , you might give it a chance. Below average : 1.5 / 5
