Yet another Yash Raj film releases this week with Sidhart'Tara Rum Pum ' Anand spearheading the bandwagon.
Ranbir Kapoor returns after the disastrous 'Saawariya'and what more with three beautiful women. Bipasha , Minisha Lamba and Depika Padukone are fused in to draw the masses either with their smile or sex appeal.
Why do girls always fall for the wrong guy? Their mothers warn them about him. Their friends shake their heads disapprovingly.
Their minds tell them to escape while the going is good. But no! Oh no! Their hearts are another story altogether. You see, they are always sending all the wrong signals. His name alone is enough to scramble their brains and set their hearts racing. Meet Raj.
He is the stuff of dreams, with the looks of a 'butter wouldn't melt in my mouth' good boy. Who can blame him for falling in love as many times as love is fortunate enough to find him. It's not his fault that he's a heartbreaker, its in his DNA.
Come... discover his three love stories; Raj and Mahi, Raj and Radhika, Raj and Gayatri. Different ladyloves at different times in his life. And each one of them teach him a little bit about love and a little bit about life, in their own sweet, sexy or sassy way. Come fall in love... three times over!
To start off with one wonders whether films such as these ever have a scripting stage . Maybe someone walked up to the director and asked him to explore the Ranbir-Deepkia bonding that has been creating much hype in the media. Oh,well what about the sex appeal quotient? Simple, rope in Bipasha Basu and for those DDLJ lovers there is the cute Minisha Lamba.
No doubt there is the style quotient backed by the pretty locales of Sydney etc that is synonymous with every Yash Raj film but right from the opening 20 mins you are bored. The film is an overload of clichés. Right from the so called 18 year old Raj(Ranbir ) and his adventure joy ride and his pack of silly friends. The film to a certain extent crosses that thin line between humor and vulgarity with all those comments on Indian aunties and that over branding of condoms.
The music of the film is pretty ok and cinematography too is enticing but nothing saves a film that is headed nowhere. The proceedings of the film are quite lame especially when the heroic Raj cries for the very first time and is headed to apologize to his previous flings. And then comes one song after another and how silly things get when Ranbir is made Bips personal assistant.
Ranbir Kapoor hasn't evolved as an actor and isn't convincing at all. There's a lot more to an actor than just being cute.
Bipasha Basu is wasted and does nothing beyond bringing in the oomph factor.She looks much older than Ranbir.
Minisha Lamba still needs to work on her Hindi. She's Ok.
Deepika Padukone impresses with her simplicity and her body language. She is efficient and should take more characters of substance.
On the whole, this film lacks real substance be it humor or emotions and ends up being a silly fling swing flick.
