Milenge Milenge

Medium : Hindi

Director : Satish Kaushik

'Jab We Met', acted by Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor is one of the best hindi movies that got released in the last 10 years. The off screen affair and separation between stars has alway
s been a talk of the town, when we take the case of bollywood. Thus 'Milenge Milenge' has also been a matter of such discussion forums, the reason is mentioned above. Shahid and Kareena are the main participants here. They are acting together after a short gap. Such things have never attracted me. Even in the middle of memories of 'Jab We Met', the main factor that pulled me back is the director of this movie. Satish Kaushik, an actor also, had given directed movies like 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja', 'Prem', 'Hum Aap Ke Dil Mein Rahte Hai', Tere Naam', 'Karzzz' etc. 'Milenge Milenge', produced by Roop Ki Rani's husband Boney Kapoor is a late release, after being rested for many months.

Priya (Kareena Kapoor), is ambitious and she wants her partner to be a gentle man without any bad habits like smoking, drinking etc. When she met an astrologer (Kiron Kher),
the latter tells that Priya is going to meet her partner within a week and that too in Bangkok, at a sea shore. She is being selected along with his friends from the college, to visit Bangkok. Immy (Shahid Kapoor), a rich guy with all the bad habits is enjoying the life and he also reached Bangkok with his friends. One day, he accidentally went through Priya's personal diary and decided to act like a good man. Soon they became closer to each other, without her notice Immy continued the habits of smoking and drinking. Priya found her diary's photo copy from Immy's room and thus became the reason for them to be got separated. He begged for pardon by telling that he will be changing his habit. He assumes that all that happened between them is due to faith and destiny. Priya took a 50 rupee currency and wrote Immy's name and phone number on it. She bought a book from the stall for that money. On the second page of the book, she has written her name and number and sold it at another place. Now, she tells that if destiny wants a re-union between two, then fate will bring those two properties back to them. What happens to their relationship is told in the later areas of 'Milenge Milenge'.

When the heroine wrote something on the currency, suddenly I came to know that it is not a fresh idea. The same situation has happened in the 2003 tamil movie 'J J', directed by Saran starring Madhavan, Pooja and Nisha Kothari. Now it is known that both these were taken from the English movie, 'Serendipity'. Cinematographer S.Sriram, who worked with the same director before in 'Tere Sang' and 'Tere Naam', has not given extraordinary visuals to be mentioned. He has also done a malayalam movie 'Thanmathra'. Songs by Himesh Reshammiya, with the nasal tone, are not the best. The songs are also happening in unwanted situations.

As expected, Satish Kushik has presented the movie is a very ordinary way only. Lengthy shots and non realistic situations had made the movie a boring one. We can't request big from from such a poor story. The way in which the astrologer tells about heroine's partner doesn't look realistic. The hero and his friends doing the female make up is shown 1000 times before. The actors who did the role of hero's companions has not delivered their best. The thief running with the book is a childish thing. The journey done by the hero and heroine to find their lovers is a wastage of time. The relationship between the father and the hero doesn't felt serious. Without a commendable situation in it, it is not easy to analyze the performance of Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor in 'Milenge Milenge'.

No need to waste your precious time watching a boring movie like 'Milenge Milenge'.

Rating : 4 / 10
