Emran rocks, unconvincing climax, overall one time watchable for the dialogues and performances!

First of all let me tell you that in the afternoon show of this movie, which doesn't have any Khan or Kumar in it, the house was full. Yeah, it's not convincing but it is true. The whole theater was full, especially with the youngsters. This clearly shows that Music hit, to Movie hit! Mohit Suri is popular for making films which are more related to the youngsters and especially the couples. The songs become popular before the movie release. He is the same director who made Ashiqui2 which became super hit without any stars and Ek Villain which collected 100cr at the box office without any storyline. So he rejoins the Bhatt camp and convince Mahesh Bhatt to write the story. Because of the family project, Emran Hashmi and Rajkumar Rao had been finalized for the respected roles. And Vidya Balan is selected because of the suggestion of Mahesh Bhatt. And then first of all, they create the soulful soundtrack. They even bought the song Zaroori Tha from Rahat Fateh Ali Khan for the better success of the album. Thus the film began to start! Story line is not refreshing. Old wine has been served in new bottle. But, the stars make the bottle a worthy drink. Undoubtedly, everyone will talk about Emran Hashmi after the movie. Though Vidya Balan is also fantastic and Rajkumar Rao also acts well. But, he is not convincing as a terrorist, or as an old man or as the husband of Vidya Balan. Vidya looks perfect for the role. But, it is Emran who makes the audience cry, who makes the audience to feel sad for him through his eyes, especially where tears come out from them. Music is outstanding. The best song that suits in it is Zaroori Tha. Title track is awesome. Jeet Ganguly once again proved that he can give the best! Last paragraph of that song is playing in the climax where Rao throws ashes in the garden, is the best scene with full emotions. Hasi and Hamnawa are also listenable. Dialogues are another plus point. The film is majorly dependent on Hashmi's powerful dialogues. Cinematography is as usual as we had seen in Suri's previous movies. Story looks good till interval, even after post interval, too. But, I don't convince with the climax and its twist. I'm hoping for something good for all, but, Suri only loves not so happy ending. This film shows the true love between two persons, so the Girlfriend-Boyfriend type people may not like this film. I'm saying so because I've watched some faces after the movie. On the whole, you can watch it once if you are a fan of Emran Hashmi or even Mohit Suri. I think it's better than Mohit's last 3-4 releases. But than also only Emran steals the show. This is his first U certified film, so family audience can also go for it. Hamari Adhuri Kahani can make only one difference and that is the return of Emran Hashmi!

An Inconsistent, Yet Watchable Tragic Love-Story!

Mohit Suri's 'Hamari Adhuri Kahaani' is An Inconsistent, Yet Watchable Tragic Love-Story! Its brooding with sadness & although its never entirely convincing, this story still has a few moments, that evoke a certain emotion within you. Its flawed, but not without its pluses!

'Hamari Adhuri Kahaani' Synopsis: Five years after the mysterious disappearance of her husband, a woman becomes romantically involved with a wealthy hotelier and together they confront her past.

'Hamari Adhuri Kahaani' is a tragedy & hence the film mostly deals with the downs of life. The main characters are finely written, but they are so sad beneath, that after a point, you're exhausted. No, this isn't a depressing story, but at its heart, its an incomplete love saga about 2 people who just can't be one.

Mahesh Bhatt & Shagufta Rafiq's Screenplay is impressive in parts, but lags otherwise. While the first-hour moves a slow-pace, the second-hour slips into full on tragedy mode. However, the final act is unconvincing. The culmination, especially, doesn't work. The Writing isn't bad, but it could've been stronger & more convincing. Mohit Suri's Direction is decent. Cinematography is alright. Editing is loose at times. Mithoon, Jeet Ganguly & Ami Mishra's Songs are wonderful. Raju Singh's Background Score is excellent, as well.

Performance-Wise: Vidya Balan is earnest in her portrayal of a women torn between a broken marriage & a relationship she can't accept due to her morales. Though her character is regressive, Balan makes her believable, despite the Script's loopholes. Emraan Hashmi is brilliant & also the scene-stealer. He is mature, subdued & absolutely perfect as the sympathetic hero. Rajkumar Rao has a small role, but he leaves a mark as the hard-to-love husband. Namit Das is passable. Prabal Panjabi & Narendra Jha are adequate. Suhasini Mulay is terrific a cameo.

On the whole, 'Hamari Adhuri Kahaani' is a so-so fare.

Impulsive Attacks Of Melodrama. ♦ 34%

There was a film called Ishqedarriyan (2015) that released few weeks ago and silently moved out of the theaters when everybody (including its cast and crew) chose not to watch it. Mohit Suri's latest makes sure that its story reached the Bollywood audience. So we have this.

An orthodox and abusive sadist of a man (Rao) marries a tubby, young woman (Balan),injures her both mentally and physically, plants his seed, and a year later, goes on an unexpected outing, leaving her to stay on her own with her newborn. Five years later, a success- oriented and priggish businessman (Hashmi),who otherwise has a good heart, meets this destitute woman and showers his love upon her, also hiring her has his florist like he is going to build a country out of flowers. In other words, the film is about a man (the good guy) who sincerely loves the wife of another fellow (the bad guy),and after an episode of dramaturgy, goes on to unite the original couple. How convenient.

Now we know what the story is, and lovers may be able to relate and rejoice with it, but the loose screenplay and terrible writing spoils what could have been a genuine representation of true love, or whatever that means. Fortunately, it is better than Ishqedarriyan.

Direction is also to be blamed where three top actors of the industry are simply wasted. Hashmi, in an out-of-the-typecast role, bluffs while his co-actor Rao puts up an average act of being a monster. Balan just gets away with her dismal performance. I sat up on my seat when I saw nose-jobbed Amala Akkineni (of Pushpak fame) in a cameo. Tonite I am going to wonder what drove her to do the bit.

Although, I must say I am impressed with some of the dialogs which were quite romantic and generally true. Otherwise, the film is filled with people talking nonsense, shedding tears like their eye sockets are connected to the Niagara Falls. How a selfish man suddenly turns generous is what largely affects the dramatic closure of the story. All said and done, this tragedy is not heart-breaking, but heart-aching.

BOTTOM LINE: Hamari Adhuri Kahani has a story that has all the ingredients mixed and placed in the mold. The makers just forgot to bake it.

RATING: 3 stars out of 10. Should skip.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
