To all those who have no idea about VTV or YMC, let me clear the clouds. Gautam Menon directed VTV (Vinnaithandi Varuvaayaa), starring Silambarasan and Trisha. The movie due to its unusual climax is considered to be a classic love story. Next, Gautam directed the same movie in Telugu language with Nag Chaitanya (on recommendation by his father Nagarjuna) and Samantha, with exactly opposite ending than the Tamil one. YMC received an average response from public as well as critics.
Now, Gautam Menon has selected the conventional climax of Ye Maaya Chesaave, rather than VTV, and that is what will make this film a sure deserved flop! I personally did not like YMC at all, and this Hindi movie is actually a remake of YMC! I am feeling cheated Mr. Menon!
It takes a lifetime of a filmmaker to deliver a masterpiece movie. But if the filmmaker himself doesn't cherish about it, then it seems that the movie was a masterpiece rather by fluke.
I am not even interested to review this movie further, but I will do it just for the sake of formality.
Cast: Prateik Babbar excels as Sachin, the lesser said about Ammy Jackson is better. Manu Rishi is noteworthy.
Story And Screenplay: Nothing new in "this" version of movie and the screenplay is extremely weak with no subplots and overdose of songs.
Editing And Cinematography: Editing is poor, cinematography is first rate.
Music And Background Score: I chose not to review EDT's music as I can't move on from VTV and YMC's music. Background Score is remastered and is brilliant.
Direction: Sorry Mr. Menon, you have just lost a loyal fan!
Verdict:Please avoid this film.Period.
