LOVE AAJ KAL MOVIE REVIEW
'Love Aaj Kal' will have you believe that Certain things don't change with the passage of time. The movie, directed by Imtiaz Ali , stars Saif alikhan and Deepika Padukone as lovers in different time periods.
London, Sanfransisco, Delhi - 2009.
Jai and Meera are a modern-day couple in London. They are very happy together but do not believe in tying each other down. So when life pulls them in different directions, they decide to go with the flow
Jai doesn't believe in eternal love. "These Heer-Ranjha, Romeo-Juliet type janam janam ka saath type couples exist only in story books," Jai says. In the real life, we have to be practical.
Delhi, Calcutta - 1965.
Veer Singh is struck by a thunderbolt when he sees Harleen for the first time. Soon after, he stands under a tree and swears that "is janam mein aur har janam mein... yehi meri votti banegi - Harleen Kaur."
So smitten is Veer with Harleen that he travels a thousand kilometers by train to stand under her balcony only to have a glimpse of her face. And yet not speak a word with her.
Veer does not understand how Jai can treat matters of the heart without passion, like a financial transaction. Jai does not understand how Veer Singh could have been so naïve and silly about Harleen in the days of his youth.
But as both stories unfold, we realize that the process of relationship might be different in different eras, but the experience of being in love remains the same. There is the frolic and despair of modern living, the liberation and confusion. And there is the past - the times of innocence and compulsion. And there is distance, and the fondness that increases with distance. Gaps widen between two people, but bridges keep growing too.
'Love Aaj Kal' marks the birth of production house Illuminati Films, owned by Saif Ali Khan and partner Dinesh Vijan. Sunil Lilla is the co producer. The movie also stars Rishi Kapoor , Neetu Singh and Rahul Khanna in significant roles. There's also a cameo by a British model named Florence.
The movie 'Love Aaj Kal', starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, is a more serious and realistic love story of modern days. It is sure, moviegoers will not be disappointed at all.
After the successful love story of Geet and Aditya in Jab We Met, Imitiaz has successfully shifted the memories of JWM with another romantic flick 'Love Aaj Kal'.
The movie is based on the commitment of young professionals in love life, who decides to split following ups and down in life.
Director Imtiaz Ali has been success to define the meaning of Aaj Kal with his dialogues, which are crisp, concise and completely in sync with aaj ka lingo.
Another important thing in the movie is the characterisations that literally set the screen on fire.
Love Aaj Kal is a complex love story because the couple in love lives are complete denial. The all credit goes to Imtiaz Ali who has wrote an exceptional offbeat story.
However, the writing isn't the type that would appeal to all sections of movie-goers. In the final word Love Aaj Kal makes you fall in love again.
