'Milenge Milenge': Kuch to hai!

Review of Milenge Milenge


The gap between the commencement of this film and its eventual release is quite substantial and that's pretty evident when you look at its promos. Especially the way the lead actors look. The camera doesn't lie, right? Perhaps, that's a prime reason why 'Milenge Milenge' doesn't propel you to rush to a nearby cineplex and grab a seat, despite the fact that its lead stars are at the prime of their respective careers and enjoy a solid fan-base.

But never judge a book by its cover. Sure, you march into the film with zilch expectations, expecting a dated product with a hackneyed plotline, but as the reels begin to unspool, you realize that it does have a story to tell. So what if 'Milenge Milenge' borrows from the John Cusack - Kate Beckinsale starrer 'Serendipity' [2001]. The Indianisation by writer Shiraz Ahmed is quite engaging at places.

The 'recipe' for that perfect love story is simple [at least that's what most film-makers believe]: Cast a good looking pair, choose a tried-and-tested story [read, make a mix of 'Ek Duuje Ke Liye', 'Q.S.Q.T', 'Maine Pyaar Kiya', 'D.D.L.J', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'], garnish it with sweet/cute/romantic/delightful situations, add a couple of energetic songs [at least two/three Hit songs are a must] and shoot the movie at panoramic locales. Presto, prem kahani tayyar ho gayee!
