Arz Kiya hai – “Talli hai yeh zameen.. Talli hai yeh aasmaan.. Sab talli hai yaha.. ya fir sara jahan..waise ke waisa hai.. hum talli hai yaha” (Thank you, thank you..Adaab arz hai 😛 shit I m so drunk now 😛 ) So guys, our dear KJo’s Dharma Production is back with a another bang after “Agneepath” – Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu (I don’t understand why kk for the 2nd ek??? Is that ek very special than the 1st ek???)
The movie is very simple yet very sweet. Rahul Kapoor (Imran Khan) works as an architect at Las vegas. His life is been controlled by his parents played by Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah. Since childhood, he is been pressurized and is made to live his life as per his parents choice. Whereas Riana Braganza (Kareena Kapoor) is a very modern girl with very basic needs. A lovely – dovely, bubbly type girl who loves to live a free life and do whatever she wants (Kuch yaad aya???nahi aya??? Arey Apni Geet from “Jab We Met” 😀 ) So accidents mixed with some humor, they meet at a psychiatrist’s clinic and then decides to go out for a drink . After couple of Shots, as you all know kya hota hai, G haa.. who hi hua.. They got super Talli and mazak mazak main they got married. A shocking hangover for both of them on the next day but they still manage to take it very low and calm. So unka divorce hota hai ya nahi??? Kya unn dono main kabhi pyaar hota hai ya nahi???Janne ke liye puri picture dekheye (and why the hack I am writing like a tv serial writer??? Shit, I am so drunk 😛 ) basically thats the story in a nutshell and I am sure all of have seen “what happened in vegas”. Chapa mara hai wahi se 😀
The story is nothing great, yet some of the plots are very well directed which will make you smile and laugh. Not be missed are the songs in the movie. With an excellent music by the Legend Amit Trivedi, the team has shot all the songs very well and has done full justice to it. “Talli hai yeh zameen” is shot very well and takes you to a Vegas tour far better than “I feel good” from “Anjaana Anjaani”. However, the story is nothing new. As it is very much “INSPIRED” (hahahahaha!!! I can’t stop laughing. Why do we use it always 😛 ) from “what happened in vegas”.
The music is excellent and is very well used in the movie. “Gubbarey” song, I am sure will be the hottest callertune, this valentine. Hats off, Amit Trivedi. You have done it again.
Imran Khan is very cute. A perfect 8 on 10 for this movie. But it has been repetitive, Rahul Kapoor is very much like Jai Singh Rathod from “Jaane tu ya Jaane na” (Hai la! I just realized, even the mummy is same here.. hahahaha) . Bebo looks really cute and hot ( I wonder how she got this combination 😀 ) No doubt about her acting skills, she plays the role of Raina very well. All I would say is, she is not been used to his fullest potential in this movie.
So, the final verdict. Dhinchak Mumbai will rate it 3 stars out of 5. Ekk baar toh dekh hi saktey ho with your loved one. Also if you guys have any idea where I would get those big glasses from the poster in Mumbai??? please tweet me @imsank
Wishing all of you a very happy Love week . Spread love not war.. peace!!!
