Love Story 2050: Papa Kehte Hain…
Amit Om Sharma reviews the Bollywood love story set in future Love Story 2050
Harry Baweja did wonders to prove what his son Harman can do with himself. Lets look at it bit by bit.
Direction : Harry Uncle seems to be very sure about himself. He has left no stone unturned or in other words he has left no avenue where he could not have spent the money. The locations, visual effects picturisation, film development, editing. But sometimes too much of “perfection” makes one ignore small details. In a scene when Harman Putter sees Priyanka for the first time, she has a piece of cloth lying on the bench of the park When she is leaving she is not shown picking it up but it disappears when Harman Putter reaches that bench. The Director as a good father knows all the specialties of the Putter, hence he explores all of them in the movie. It is surprising that the world is blaming Aamir for trying to jeopardize the movie by comparing Harman with Hritik. Trust me, this seems to be the an important aspect of the movie because the director has made that quiet apparent. The way Harman dresses, his body language, his gestures, expressions all suggest that he is the long lost brother of Hritik. Someone will have to find out who went to Kumbh ka Mela and lost a child, was it the Roshan family or The Bawejas.
Acting : Had the director been kind enough not to make it appear that Harman shares the looks-n-features of Hritik, perhaps the movie lovers would have really appreciated the efforts made by the young actor in his debut role. He certainly knows how to act (considering the fact that he has to act as Hritik and also play a character ). If only he would wear more clothes and not show his body. Why does he have to wear wrist bands, elbow bands etc. all the time!!! Reminds me of the Uday Chopra of “Mohabbatein” fame. Priyanka Chopra looked quite old for Harman and certainly gave an impression of a lady being chased by a youngster. Boman does not have to do much in the movie, though he is the person responsible for 2050.
Story : Very simple, but a roller coaster ride. Initially everything looks so well, then sudden a twist. Won’t like to disclose much but yes it is only after 45 minutes one realizes why it is Love Story 2050. Though I would suggest Harry uncle a more appropriate title “Love Story & 2050″. Let me tell you what it comprises of: little bit of Karan’s Kitchen, Back to future, Termiator, Star Trek and plenty of video games.
Music : Anu Mallik must have done pretty good work because it is very difficult to make out his source(s) of the inspiration but yes, I really do not have adventure left enough in me to listen to it again.
Effects : Of course they were good after all that was the USP of the film. It was all nothing but a play station.
In a nutshell, the movie is just a little over 3 hours long, and it could replace Ramu’s “Sholay” in “Dey Taally”. Keep Guessing.
