A decent movie that deserves a chance
SYNOPSIS: Sam (Om Puri) is a single father raising his only daughter Pakhi (Sakshi) in Canada. As a consequence he is extremely protective of her and they share a very special bond. Sam's biggest fear is that his baby girl will have to get married and leave someday. He is of the firm belief that no man can love his daughter as much as he does. But unfortunately for Sam, his worst fears come true when Pakhi meets and falls in love with Samar (Priyanshu). Samar is a suspended cop who comes to Canada to solve some case which will prove his innocence. The rest of the movie focuses on how Sam comes to terms with the situation and accepts Samar as part of his daughter's life.

REVIEW: APBKDH is Anubhav Sinha's second venture after Tum Bin. He returns to Canada for the setting. Believe it or not, this time he manages to capture the scenery even better than in Tum Bin. The story itself is inspired from Father of the Bride and Meet the Parents but thankfully this doesn't take from the merits of the movie. Mainly because Anubhav Sinha is a good storyteller. My only complaint about the story was Priyanshu's suspended cop track which was a little confusing and lengthy. Also the fact that Pakhi's family cut ties with him because of it is hard to believe. He lied, yes and they had a right to be mad but not kick him out altogether.

The cinematography as I've mentioned before is breathtaking. The music however is disappointing. After Tum Bin, the expectations were high. The best song in terms of picturization and music is the title song. The rest are only slightly above average. Performances wise, veteran actor Om Puri takes the cake. Playing a worried, protective yet doting dad to the hilt, he is an absolute delight to watch. Priyanshu as the other pillar of the movie is also great. He has improved a great deal since Tum Bin. Here he gets to play a lighter character and gets to show us his action, comedy as well as romantic sides. He looks extremely handsome especially in all the trendy clothes he wore. Sakshi as Pakhi makes a decent debut. She looks pretty in almost every scene. Her best scenes are with Om Puri.

BOTTOM LINE: Definitely recommended for Canadian scenery and the performances but mainly for the depiction of the relationship between a father and his daughter. Also the tug of war between Sam and Samar is fun to watch. Om Puri and Priyanshu are hilarious.

Also I'd like to mention that the song 'Aisi Aankhen Dekhi Nahin' (I've never seen such eyes) should have been picturized on Priyanshu instead of Sakshi. His eyes are way prettier than hers.
