Firstly, if you are expecting a remarkable rom-com from Gori Tere Pyar Mein, then brace yourself for a big disappointment as the film is neither funny, nor romantic. In fact, it’s a break-up, patch-up saga that becomes extremely boring after a point of time.
Gori Tere Pyar Mein is not even a slapstick comedy film that Bollywood filmmakers are churning out every alternate week. At least those films are paisa vassol, but in this film not only does the story take a backseat, but the humour element is also missing. While efforts have been made to provoke laughter, but they fail to tickle our funny bones. What adds to the misery is that there is hardly any scene in the romantic film where you will feel love between Kareena Kapoor and Imran. The two are seen fighting with each other throughout the film. Too many songs and slow pace of the movie are other drawbacks of the film.
Punit Malhotra, who was an assistant director in Dharma productions’ films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie and Kal Ho Naa Ho, hasn’t learnt anything from his last flop film I Hate Luv Storys.
Kareena Kapoor (Dia Sharma) is playing the role of a social activist, who is keen to work for the welfare of the vulnerable and underpriviliged sections of the society. In fact, it his hard to believe that how such a talented actor agreed to do this role. Expecting a powerful performance from Imran Khan seems to be a crime now. He appears to be playing the same boy-next-door character in every film since his debut in 2008 with Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na. Imran is playing a Tamil boy in GTPM. But neither he looked like a Tamil chap, nor did he speak any dialogue in Tamil.
Whenever Karan Johar produces or directs a movie, it is expected to be a grand flick, but GTPM appears to be a half-hearted attempt. The movie ends so abruptly that may make you feel that even Punit Malhotra was in a hurry to finish the film.
Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor fans are requested to go and watch the film at your own risk.
