Trailer review: Imran-Kareena's Gori Tere Pyar Mein reminds you of Hrithik's Lakshya
Movie: Gori Tere Pyar Mein
Cast: Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor
Director: Punit Malhotra
Producer: Karan Johar (Dharma Productions)
Trailer rating: **1/2
Gori here doesn't refer to a gaon ki gori, rather a gori in gaon, jiske pyar mein Imran Khan too lands in a village. Kareena Kapoor is a rebel, perhaps inspired by a female freedom fighter, described in the movie as the hardcore kranti queen. She dons the Gandhi cap, fights for the rights of the aam junta, stands up for the issues of villagers, and even worries about the pressing problems of the country. Throughout the film, it seems, she's busy hopping here and there. When not fighting for something, she's filming a documentary on the life of prostitutes.
Imran Khan is a happy-go-lucky, bindaas, spoilt brat. He's that dude who's -- mentally -- still in college and wishes to enjoy life rather than taking is easily. The ultimate aashiq, he's quite opposite to Kareena, just like in Lakshya, Hrithik and Preity are two opposites. She is a rebellious journalist who wants to change the world, while Hrithik wants to chill with his friends, and is not passionate about anything in life.
Imran falls for Kareena, but the two opposites can't attract each other beyond a point -- he wants to attend gala festivals, while she's bothered about the bechara samaaj. Unlike the trailer of Rajinikanth's Kochadaiiyaan, where hardly anything is revealed, Gori Tere Pyar Mein trailer takes you through the story of the film within 3 minutes. Boy meets girl, they fall for each other. They realise they are opposites, so they fall apart. But later, the guy, smitten by his ladylove, follows her wherever she goes, to win her all over again, as the song, 'Oh ri chhori, chichhori, oh chhede humein chewing gum chabaa ke,' plays in the backdrop. That's Lakshya, combined with large doses of humour with some chunks from I Hate Luv Stories (the director and the actor are the same, perhaps they like such scenes).
Check out the dialogues of a sassy Kareena and a sissy Imran in the film:
