Love Aaj Kal Review: Imtiaz Ali Template Of Rumi, Rumination On Love & Life, Amazing Songs, Nice Visuals. Love Saga Of First Love Aaj Kal, Female Livewire of Jab We Met, Dilemma of Tamasha, Escape of Highway -All the Imtiaz Ali Masala are present in the movie!
Love Aaj Kal remains the same movie as the earlier one: Love, commitment and companionship are continuously challenged by the workings of heart and mind creating uncertainty and confusion. Two love stories in two different era.
The 1990s Udaipur story is beautiful and newcomer Aarushi Sharma impresses with her coyness-straightforwardness-boldness. ‘Baatein karni thi to phone karna tha, bulaayo kyon?’ Kartik Aryan shines in the same story but seems super confused in 2020 Delhi version. He is earnest and evokes emotions – ‘Aana hai to poori aana, varna mat aana’. Sara Ali Khan is better than expected. The most amazing is Randeep Hooda – the experienced mature been-there-done-that lover in his white shirts!
Beautiful Music with ‘Shayad’, ‘Mehrama’, ‘Rahogi Meri’ and ‘Haan Main Galat’ make for a great listening. Brilliant In Parts But Misses The Mark. Imtiaz Ali’s failure of ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ may continue….He needs to reinvent himself!
Love love? Watch it!
