When you spend your hard earned money on films, then all you expect from the film is good time. You enter in theater hoping that this film doesn’t disappoint and considers the value of money. TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA, this week’s new film is one such film which rubs 2.10 hours on a pedestrian plot, but manages to evoke plenty laughs. The film has no basic agenda except “only entertainment.” The director dumps story in a dustbin and randomly picks up some scenes which somehow fits in narration, but they are funny nonetheless. With Dearth of any modicum logic, and traffic of bizarre situations, TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA is surprisingly breezy time-pass.
The director doesn’t waste time by spoon-feeding about his characters. Instead he jumps into the mad-cap story from very beginning. The marriage sequence where Ritesh’s role arrives to claim his money back from Genelia’s father is one of the hilarious scenes which are sure to bring the house down. Soon after the kidnapping, the film goes as crazy as it could. The best part about the film is that, it celebrates its stupidity. The first half isn’t flawless, thanks to the songs appearing from nowhere.
The romantic angle is stapled in second half where everything suddenly becomes subtle. Also the family drama in final few minutes leaves sour taste. The drama sequence between Om Puri and Ritesh Deshmukh is silly and clichéd. But the film gets right on place when the couple is about to get together.
Also the romantic songs are filmed very conventionally which looks like picked up from old films. The music is good. The best track remains “O re Piya.” Also the Atif Aslam track in the ending credit is very impressive. Though the Veena Mallik song fails to create energetic atmosphere! The dialogues are catchy and well delivered. Mandeep Kumar has made a good film. His execution is top-notch when it comes to comedy.
Ritesh Deshmukh has likeable presence and he utilizes it very efficiently. Genelia’s over the top character is played convincingly by her. But her character’s emotional set-up looks fake and thus brings no spark in the dramatic portion. But she does amazingly well in comic portions. Note her in that scene, in which she does a seductive dance at a petrol spot just to con the owner. It particularly displays her energy. Om Puri has some wonderful dialogues and his diction is too funny. He remains the respite when the film is just about to fall.
TERE NAAL LOVE HO GAYA scores its maximum points in comedy. The film as a whole is entertaining and a stress-buster ride. It delivers what it promises which leaves you satisfied. If you don’t mind those old conventional rom-coms, then this one’s for you.
