love-aaj-kal-1A tired mind and a slightly sick body (caught cold unfortunately) was thinking for a Friday night action as Friday is the best day of the week which is not to be wasted no matter how much tired or sick you are! Unfortunately at certain times, our metabolism (triggered by a laziness or a down-feeling) causes us to stay at home even on a Friday night, and at these times best way to enjoy oneself is to pick up a right movie for your soul which is already in search of an amusement in such a stressed life flowing always in hurry!

After watching a series of Shahrukh Khan movies such as Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam, Karan Arjun and Anjaam, i was really in need of a modern bollywood story with a fresh screen (I am still the biggest fan of SRK, that is an another debate 😀 ). There was the movie on my desk resting in silence for a day named “Love Aaj Kal” so i decided to go for it. I didn’t go for a search on net before seeing it as this time subtitles were available in English (unfortunately the subs were not matching the scenes, which i realized later on!).

Soon i discovered Saif Ali (the funny guy of bollywood) and Deepika Padukone (popularized by the movie Om Shanti Om thanks to SRK) were the leading cast. The movie was proceeding in two different times: the past and the present. Both telling about a love story embedded by some bollywood items. In the past, the relation between Jai Varhdan Singh and Harleen Kaun is so pure, simple yet strong and stubborn while the bond between Veer and Meera is modern, or rather post-modern even to have a break-up party, superficial and weak to split off at any moment.

Saif Ali was as cool and funny as ever and Deepika was looking so like a delicate butterfly. I loved the scenes where she was acting as drunk so behaving more like a naughty kid. And yea i should say i love her clothes, whatever she wears just fits on her (which is hard not to envy 😛 )

What is to get from the movie is sometimes even if the truth is just lying in front of our eyes, we may not be able to see it with the eyes of our mind yet the heart sees everything in real, so that the love can be felt as true as a heartbeat!

I rate the movie as 4/5 as it is lack of a catchy soundtrack (we all know that item songs are quite important in a bollywood movie, don’t we?) yet still it worths more than watching…Let yourself get lost in it 🙂

Although it has been more than a week since i watched this movie, I could not have time at all to review it as these days time has gained more value 🙂

In this movie i came across many familiar faces such as Irfan Khan (lately took place in Billu Barber), Rahul Bose, Rahul Khanna (whom i first seen in the movie Bollywood/Hollywood, Konkona Sen Sharma (whom i really like especially after her appearance in Aaj Nachle) and Soha Ali Khan (at whom I was amazed in Rang De Basanti).

It is basically about the relations of husbands and wives in married lives and their approach at ‘outsiders’. It starts with the divorce decision of a married couple who already lost the soul of their marriage. Their best friends (who are also a married couple) quite criticise the decision but at the same time they start to question their own marriage life as well. We see some minor details regarding a cheating husband, a wife trying to save a marriage, a woman trying to gain a relation, another husband pretending to be loyal to his wife but indeed already giving up on her in his mind, another wife looking so happy being married but in fact quite confused in deep and some other people passing by their lives in between.

What happens in the end…Lust is proved to be a strong feeling but still to be a temporary one and decreasing in time on the contrary to love and showing only true and sincere love (not the artificial infatuation) can resist any kind of obstacle.

What I liked most in this movie is the fun side of it. It is decorated with some “laughter items” making the audience smile even at the bitter truths accepting the life as it is.

Soundtrack is a good one as well. My favourite song from this movie is “Zindagi Yeh” among the following ones:

1. Ehsaan
2. Uthale Ya Phenk De
3. Zindagi Ye
4. Ok Tata Done
5. Nasha Nashila
6. Ehsaan [Remix]
7. Zindagi Ye [Rock Version]
8. Goodnight

Overall it is a time-pass movie still with lots of messages to deliver deserving a 3/5 from me 🙂
