I must say I have been a fan of Kajol for years but I only recently have been a fan of Ajay's. This guy is awesome as a actor and am sorry to have found him so late. I am amazed by some of his past performances. Getting back to the movie.
I loved this movie. It is excellent. One of the best Bollywood movies that I have seen in long time. I am dying to get the DVD. Finally a mature Bollywood movie with a good plot and good acting and nice cinematography. I was not bored at all through out the movie.
First of all it seems a lot shorter than the other Bollywood movies I have seen. It's not 5 hrs but 2 1/2 hrs.
The Ajay and Kajol jodi is awesome together. I know it been a long time since this Jodi has worked but they are beautiful with each other. i would classify in the league of SRK and Kajol and Aamir and Kajol. They look real good like they belong to each other. The chemistry is smoking hot. You can see that there is a lot of love and comfort between them and finally it shows on scene.
Watch this movie for the performances,the direction and the story. It is hard to believe that it is Devgan's first direction. Ajay Devgan is really good at making romantic movies although I was surprised because I don't think of him in romantic roles. If this is his first direction than he is very gifted. It is beautifully shot. This movie has everything.
Both AD and Kajol truly deserve all the awards including the national award for their acting. Kajol has never looked more beautiful. Kajol is the only one of the current Bollywood actress that could play this role. She really gets in the skin of characters that she plays. Ajay also was truly amazing in his role. This guys really has the midas touch. These two are Bollywood's best actors by far. Ajay is as good as Aamir and maybe better. I think this guys is good at any role he plays. Although he is not the typical pretty boy, he is really attractive and you fall in love with his charm.
The story is excellent. There were several memoriable scenes that you were left with. It is both a powerful and gripping. The first half was funny and entertaining. The second half is when the movies really made it for me. I think what works is Ajay's intention that people leave with the right message. I appreciate what he has done. You leaving contemplating life and the issues that surround you. You will need lots of tissues in the second half. I think that if you are married or in a relationship you will appreciate this movie a lot more than if you are single. Finally a movie that brings families together than separating them.
I thought the music was very nice and it goes very well with the scenes. I was singing the theme song for days. The costumes were also very nice. I want to get my hands on some of them. I was also surprised by the humor in the first half.
My only objections is that it was not shot in the beautiful European towns like other Bollywood movies and the dancing limited. I guess I should expect the dancing limitation since the Devgan doesn't having the great dancer reputation.
If you have to catch one movie this year it is U ME AUR HUM.. It deserves that national award and should sweep the all awards. It is Hollywood caliber.
My rating is excellent. Must watch..You will not be disappointed.
