Ratings: *** 1/2 ( 3.5 out of 5)
There is a latest buzz on internet that Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer “Teri Meri Kahaani” is a must watch movie, hence it has the capability in it to revive the long forgotten romantic era of Bollywood.
The story takes us through a journey of eternal love between a couple who have vowed to love each other not only in this life but in every life to follow. Their love is so strong that even destiny wants to bring them together. The story starts in 1960 Bombay with Govind and Ruksar, then moves ahead to present times.The reports also suggests that – Shahid is a complete surprise package in the movie. Kapoor is seen in such a gritty role for the first time and to one’s surprise he has done justice to his respective roles from different eras. In short, Shahid does an exceptional job throughout the movie.
On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra was just outstanding in her roles. Since Priyanka and Shahid made a great onscreen pair in Kaminey, and that Teri Meri Kahaani is their first film ever since they parted ways after a rumoured whirlwind romance, also contributes to the audience curiousity. The best part in the movie is the chemistry between the duo and the way Kunal concludes the three stories. The distinctiveness of the film is intriguing enough to make the viewers hang on and await for every scene.
Overall the movie is uncomplicated and charming. Not the usual romantic fare, this one presents three different stories in three different eras without getting theatrical or melodramatic.
