Bollywood and love stories always went Kaboom!
A typical Bollywood rom-com includes dances, puns, tears, love, drama… yes, almost everything. Gori Tere Pyar Mein isn’t something out-of-the-box that the audience hasn’t seen but you just can’t ignore the fact the you are laughing at Imran Khan’s nonchalant one-liners (Oh! He is just so irresistible!). And let’s not forget Kareena Kapoor, whose screen-presence is something which no one can ignore, she is so damn beautiful!
Coming to the movie, there is –
Sriram (Imran Khan) – Rich. Playboy. Dad calls him "Kala Dhabba" (with a heavy stereotyped South Indian accent).
Diya (Kareena Kapoor) – Dilli girl with a social cause. Always pretty (even when in a dry Gujarat village)
Jhumli (the village) – Funny villagers. No matter what, always ready to dance!
In the first-half of the movie, Sriram (Imran Khan) is shown as irresponsible and a spoilt brat who just fools around. To put some sense into him, his family decides to get him married. And the bride-to-be is Vasudha (Shraddha Kapoor of Aashiqui 2 fame). Twist happens when Vasudha tells Imran she loves someone else and doesn’t want to get married, and asks him to tell her about his ex-love. Then pops in the subject of Diya aka Kareena Kapoor. They talk and talk… a bit of flashbacks and we get a brief idea of Diya and what happened to her.
Well, it takes a little time for Sriram to get the divine revelation that he actually loves Diya. And hence, we have a runaway groom!
Sriram is on his way to Jhumli to bring back the love of his life. Of course, she is not ready to go. The hero is adamant. Heroine is stubborn. Then comes the issue of a bridge. Pops in Anupam Kher as the stingy… kind of evil – Collector of the village. Then follows a series of events (songs and dance included) where finally, the hero wins. Good over evil, remember? Heroine is in love again and off she goes with the hero. Happily ever after.
Anupam Kher as the Gujarati collector did a pretty good job. Same can be said about Shraddha Kapoor, though she didn’t have too many dialogues, she managed to carry off her role in a good way. The Imran-Kareena chemistry is a total hit. We loved them in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and we love them here. Though the plot is not very different, the audience will be hooked on to the movie till the end.
The songs are not very awesome however the tracks, "Dil Duffer" and "Tooh" are quite hummable and you can get on the dance floor with "Dhat Teri Ki" and "Chingam Chabake".
With funny puns and little bit of dance, drama and romance, this movie is definitely going to entertain you.
