Sheer entertainment negates the predictability of the film....
30 December 2013 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

The promos and the very beginning of the film itself reflects the predictability of the film which is the only negative point I saw in this film. "Ramaiya Vastavaiya" (taken from the song of Raj Kapoor's Shree 420) , as the title, is refreshing and feels like a fresh breath of air filled with hilarious, comical, and romantic moments which hold you to your seats despite the predictability of the story where we have a caring brother, sister, and a lover who needs to prove his love. The setting and the story feels like "Maine Pyar Kiya" meets "Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya" but skipping the usual typecast villains of "Maine Pyar Kiya" or profanity of "Pyar Kiya To Darna Kya." You'll understand what I'm trying to say if you have seen those movies.

The film at times also succeeds as a slapstick comedy which very few Hindi movies dare to venture. There are villains but they are again normal people who help to make the movie hilarious. Performance wise, the new pair Girish Kumar and Shruti Hassan makes a marvelous performance. So can be said of Sonu Sood and Vinod Khanna, who appear in important roles. The music is good and the photography refreshing. So the biggest success of this film directed by Prabhu Deva is the sheer entertainment it provides despite the often predictability of the story.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
