Gulshan Grover is great & story is interesting. Light, romantic, fun.
I'd give the movie a 7/10 for entertainment value. Since the hero is new and not well known, I was reluctant to watch the DVD. After a few months I did and I'm glad.
No one mentioned Gulshan Grover! He provides great comedy and charm in the movie and sets the stage for how all the main actors interact with each other. This is one of my favorite performances by Gulshan Grover and a must see for his fans! This role may be more low key and not as flamboyant as his big movies where he's the villain but he gives the best performance in the entire film.
There is a particular scene with a Mohd. Rafi song - great song and tribute. That itself made the scene very romantic - my favorite scene of the movie.
In comparison to many Hindi movies - the plot in this one isn't so bad. Actually, I praise it for having a realistic component unlike many movies where the heroine gives up everything for love. In this film, does she or does she not? It isn't so predictable.
I don't think there was copying of SRK by Shahid Kapur. Actors do some things in common. In a sad scene, all actors are frowning (not smiling). That is the kind of similarity I would say the two have - a fundamental one. Although I do agree that he tried to pick up a few thins from Tom Cruise but no matter.
It was good entertainment.
