Satrring: Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani, Ram Kapoor and Ratna Pathak Shah
Director: Shakun Batra
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu begins on a thin note as it looks like a replica of Hollywood flick What Happens In Vegas courtesy accidental marriage aspect but, in due course story takes a new turn. But, again, one can find traces of Jab We Met and Anjaana Anjaani in the screenplay which makes it quite conventional. The film however, is full of surprises post interval with various powerful moments which are quite mind-boggling. Watch out for the scene where Imran confronts his parents about his real feelings and later, seeks apology from Kareena which is complemented with equally mesermerizing act from actress’s end.
Unlike the traditional bollywood love stories director Shakun Batra has tried to make a love story with a different treatment this time. Generally, a typical bollywood love story follows fixed sequence of meeting of boy and girl, becoming friends, falling in love and then getting married beating all odds with a happy ending. But this time Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu has come up with a difference sequence where the boy and girl meet, marry and then become friends.
In the movie Kareena surpasses the expectations by her performance par excellence. Though, she dominates most of times as chirpy and lively character, which is her forte; Imran too doesn’t withhold as he beautifully switches lanes from being timid to being assertive. Boman Imrani as Imran’s father fits in the bill perfectly but at times is boring with his patent expressions. Ditto goes for Imran’s mother, Ratna Pathak who brings the memories of Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai on big screen. Ram Kapoor in small but pivotal role pulls it off nicely.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is a typical popcorn entertainment with super-amazing climax which puts it in a different league altogether.
