Giri Tere Pyaar Mein! Well, the movie arrives on the scene with gusto after promotional activities and a lot of hype. The film has been in news since the pairing of Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor was loved and liked in their previous outing ‘Ek Mein Aur Ekk Tu’. The audiences wanted to see them back on screen and now in Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, the pair is back on track. The film carries no novelty in plotline, but powerful performances, catchy direction, good musical score and magic the movie carries a lot are what capture the attention of the moviegoers. Punit Malhotra, the director of the movie, does a fine job that allures the hearts. The film can work big time with the viewers provided that strong word of mouth publicty is done and hopefully it will be done since it is a youth movie. And youngsters are always crazy after rom-coms.
Today is the era of rom-coms and Puneet comes up with the idea with real greatness. He seems a little bit failed on storyline since there is hardly any kind of novelty there. But frankly, subject matter and the way the script has been penned are what grab the eyeballs and fit well with the audiences.
Sriram (Imran Khan) is the guy who does not value the relationships in life. He does not care about family and friends. He is a carefree guy in a capsule. He starts narrating the story of his crazy relationship with Dia (Kareena Kapoor), he once shared with. Dia is the one who likes her land (desh) type of girl. The attraction between the two initially turned out to be physical but eventually turned out to be emotional. Then it turned out to be into complex territories that result into a battle of ideologies and mindsets that let them be apart. Then Sriram realizes that he still loves her. But she is no there rather moved to her village in Gujrat. Sriram, being a true lover now, reaches there to get her love back. But the girl now does not like to return back with him at all. What happens next is what forms the climax of the movie.
Well, story reminds us many of past Bollywood romantic movies like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and many others. Thus, you find hardly any novelty in the narrative, but the refreshing change is what attracts the eyes and hearts. Punit’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein looks nonetheless different.
Story, as mentioned earlier, is not novel, but is likeable. Screenplay is attention-fetching. Both story and script have been penned by Arshad Sayed and Punit Malhotra. Editing is fine. Punit’s execution of the subject on screen is the most brilliant work that makes the movie attractive. Cinematography is catchy. Choreography by Remo D’ Souza is brilliant. Costumes by Manish Malhotra and Megha Tandon are attention-grabbing and well-designed. Vishal-Shekhar’s music is ear-pleasing.
Imran Khan delivers the acting skills with aplomb and conviction. He is a fine actor and always impresses with his acting prowess. Kareena Kapoor is simply awesome in her role. Shraddha Kapoor is fine to watch. Anupam Kher is first rate. Others too impress a lot.
On the whole, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is a refreshing movie that appeals to hearts. It is a young movie targeted to youngsters mainly. Watch it to be young and lively.
