Kuch Luv Jaisaa ? Na, kuch flop jaisaa…
Okay the title says it all. Bollywood these days seems to have some fascination for ‘Luv’ or else how would you explain two ‘Luv’ films in such a short period. ‘Luv Ka The End’ and then this ‘Kuch Luv Jaisaa’ and in between you had ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ which should ideally have been ‘Luv Ka Punchnama’. Not so surprising, all three films sucked big time.
Somehow, as the movie unfolds and if you’re a follower of Hollywood fares, you wouldn’t help but notice a wee bit of a resemblance to a sub plot from the Arnold Schwarzenegger mega hit, ‘True Lies’ or ‘Suchcha Jhoot’, the Hindi version. In this film, Arnold’s wife is kind of bored and to get some excitement in her life, she hooks on with a car salesman who assumes the identity of a spy. Well that was a hit but definitely not ‘Kuch Luv Jaisaa’.
Shefali is a bore housewife who one fine day decides enough is enough when her husband forgets her birthday. (Now didn’t she realize that her husband was growing old?). She decides to seek revenge and goes on a traditional shopping spree using her hubby’s dear old money. She bumps into a criminal Rahul Bose who makes her believe that he’s a spy on a mighty case and the rest is your run of the mill story as the two go on the so called adventure.
Everything about the movie fails miserably. The casts don’t do justice to the otherwise insipid story/screenplay which is purely garbled bag of scenes. Dialogues are outright down market. Camera work is okayish to an extent. The lead stars Rahul Bose and Shefali Shah who earlier had shone in most of their films clearly disappoints big time with this film. They literally ham their way through the film. Music again is passable.
Women should strictly stay away from this fare. Preteens should follow suit. For those who are fans of Rahul Bose and Shefali Shah, can crowd the theatres unless you have high expectations ‘cause you’ll surely be disappointed. But yes, the chemistry is visible though just 5% or so.
