Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani is a total paisa-vasool family entertainment, a eye-candy star cast, good performances and ample funny moments.
Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Upen Patel
Director – Raj Kumar Santoshi
Rating – 3/5
Honestly, I went to watch this film only to see Ranbir and Katrina. I thought they made a very cute teenage couple in the promos. The story, I must say, is not very impressive with some unnecessary and stupid (the Jesus scene in the end, the opening scenes), some slapstick (the fighting scenes with don’s men), some hilarious (Ranbir’s monologue with God at church, his scenes with his father) and some cute moments.
Ranbir plays Prem a school drop-out who keeps fooling around with his friends and members of his Happy Club and he falls in love with Jenny who is a Christian orphan. Ranbir takes the entire course of the film to profess his love to his lady who takes equal time to realize that true love lies in Ranbir.
Ranbir puts up a good show as a happy-go-lucky guy in love, Katrina has also improved and she does well in her role. There is also a Paresh Rawal-kinda-act with Sajid Don and Robert but it doesn’t really work. There are few bits inspired from Rajkumar Santoshi’s classic comedy Andaz Apna Apna but just not as hilarious.
The film is a joy ride with some potholes in the script, characterization, and story. Nonetheless, its an ideal family entertainer that most of the masses would enjoy!
