An old love story with new characters.That’s what exactly this film is. A one-time watch movie. The comical side of the movie is pretty decent. Go for it if someone is paying for your ticket.

Plot: Ramaiya Vastavaiya starts with a ‘Bhaiya-Behen’ relationship. Sonu Sood (Raghuveer) plays the role of the elder brother and Shruti Hassan plays the role of the younger sister (Sona). Raghuveer loves her sister a lot as he had to take the responsibility of her parents after their mother died. Girish Taurani (Ram) comes to India to attend his counsin’s marriage and falls in love with Sona. This brings a little comedy into this average movie. The affair comes into view of Ram’s mother (Poonam Dhillon). The same poor-rich discrimination again. Sona and her brother Raghuveer had to face grave humilations because of Ram’s mother. Ram gets off at Singapore and flies back to India and his mom had to go alone back to Australia after the marriage ceremony.

After interval you will get introduced to a 60′s love story in a modern style. Ram had to work hard in the farm to yeild more crops in the farm than Sona’s brother as Raghuveer challenged Ram for this. If Ram wins then he could take his love with him. Ram wins as Raghuveer gets impressed with Ram’s dedication in the farm. A little action and some self-realisation ends this film.

Technical Aspect: The direction was average if compared to Prabhudeva’s previous movies. The dialogues were not bad but the comical dialogues were good. The soundtrack of the movie was not impressive except the song ‘Jeene Laga Hoon’ which really keeps on playing in every romantic scene. Guess that’s their best song. The background score were decent indeed.

Performance: Girish Taurani hasn’t done a great job but he really suits in the comic role. Shruti Hassan is just like she was in her earlier movies. Sonu Sood played his part well and Vinod Khanna and Randhir Kapoor gave their average. Paresh Ganatra (Bijli) was pretty funny.
