If you have seen the Hindi version (Love aaj kal), you can give this a skip!
Why its a No! 1. Trisha is just not cool enough to pull off Meera's role! The grace, grandeur the role needed, is lacking! Mr. Jayanth - why didn't you think of Ileana? Date problems, may be ? :) 2. Pawan kalyan's Italian - I mean, WHAT WAS THAT? Was that Italian, Spanish, English? Hmmm.. something to ponder upon! And for some reason, this actually turns Trisha on (apparently!) 3. Chef - really? A chef who doesn't cook, who cannot flirt, who instead of serving his customers - eats! Chef, Really ??? May be ...... photographer? 4. Kriti's excessive make up - If you were looking at launching a fresh face, choose one who is already beautiful! Not just bring someone out of the blue, put oodles on make up on her and thrust her on our faces. 5. Sonu Sood - This chap who gave stellar performance as Pasupathi in Arundhati and Chedi Singh in Dabangg - was totally underplayed in this one! Director saab - learn to use your resources well!
And .. Why its a yes! 1. I have to admit, I loved Pawan's designer label collection in the movie. Just one piece of advise - Please act your age, if you cant pull off acting 10 years younger. 2. Trivikram's magic - "Salim Anarkali, Laila majnu laanti great lovers avvalante, chaavakkarledu Meera!" This dialogue was enough for the audiences to fill the theatre with whistles! 3. Pawan's power punch dialogues in the Varanasi story - Everything suited him in that role - his dressing, attitude, dialogue delivery and his screen presence! 10/10 to Pawan for doing justice to at least 50% of the movie 4. Songs - Mani Sharma's magic moments kept the movie going. 5. Story - Imtiaz Ali who wrote the original story is a genius - Pawan and Jayant have given 100% story credit to Imtiaz though they have changed the screenplay and execution!
All in all, go watch it for Pawan and you wont be totally disappointed!
