Frankly, I wasn’t expecting anything new. After many dull Friday matinees I’ve pretty much given up trying to expect anything out of a hyped-up Bollywood movie. But Love Aaj Kal took me by surprise. Director Imtiaz Ali’s portrayal of love may not be the ultimate truth but strikes a chord somehow.

The movie tells two stories- Jai and Meera are a modern day couple in London who apparently love each but can’t get themselves to commit. Meera leaves for India on a job assignment while Jai, having broken up mutually with her, is on the prowl for a new girl. But there’s another story, that of Surjit and Harleen. In times gone by their love also blossomed, albeit differently. Surjit passionately pursued her but in keeping with the societal norms of the day.

Love Aaj Kal is nothing like the promos. Imtiaz Ali’s parallel storytelling shows the past and present stories unfolding alternately with smooth transition. Whether the setting is Calcutta 1965 or San Francisco 2009, the scenes capture the mood and emotion of the day cleverly, not forgetting the songs which pepper the movie wisely. And no matter how much you try you simply can’t predict this one.

After Socha Na Tha and Jab We Met, Imtiaz Ali is on a roll. There’s no complaining about the cinematography, music, dialogues and attention to detail. On the other hand, the performances could have been a bit more convincing and the movie shorter. But after the aforesaid dull Friday matinees, this one shines through.

Give it a shot, you won’t regret it.

    Awesome movie…a one for a die heart romantic as well as for the a person who doesnt even know whether he is in love or not…

    Special praise for the way the Director has developed a connection between two different love stories of two different times and two different set of generations…

    And the song : Aaj Din Chadiye,…is awesome awesome and awesome…the timing of the song is just too fantastic..

    Deja Vu..!!!
    A Blockbuster Debut Followed By Sky-High Expectations Followed By An Average Show.. Haven’t We Seen This Quite Often Now.!
    Frankly, This Imtiaz Ali’s Creation Failed To Even Meet Expectations, Forget Exceeding. Nothing Extra-Ordinary To Boast Off, This is Barely a 1-Time Watch.

    Watched the movie yesterday would like to put few points:
    1. Saif should now realise that he is now too old for these kinda roles 2.The supposedly comic dialogues were nowhere close to be funny coz they are now too repetitive in Bollywood 3. The chemistry between Saif and Deepika was non-existent,unlike Jab We Met where Kareena and Shahid rocked 4.To be honest, the parallel story from 60’s was more touching than saif-deepika’s.5. am really impressed with young Harleen(a Brazilian model, I am told),who despite not knowing a single word of Hindi emoted very well without any dialogues 6.Music is the only high-point with beautiful tracks like “Ye dooriyan” and “Ajj din chadiyan” 7. Wished Neetu Singh(looked gracious) had more than just a blink-n-miss role 8.. Finally, one advice for Deepika: Inspite the fact, that she looks awesome in the movie and her smile, she REALLY needs an acting session class(with empahsis on dialogue delivery).
    If you are planning to watch the movie, go with 0 expectations(forget Jab we met),chances are that you may like it.

    It is the same concept of the director that the couple realised that they are in love at the end of the movie,same as in the previous film “Socha naa tha” & “Jab We Met’ nothin new in the story
