U Me Aur Hum (2008) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 1.5/5

Cast: Ajay Devgan, Kajol
Director: Ajay Devgan
Music: Vishal Baradwaj


So everyone claimed that this movie is an adaptation of Notebook...Just in traces it is...otherwise it is in a very specific genre of Indian movies called "CRAPPY MOVIE." Ya Ajay Devgan trying to carry off as a stud, Kajol with her funny English accent, the cruise liner, and the Alzheimer all drive you more than just crazy...Notebook albeit being a very average story was well directed and more importantly well acted in...but this one can claim neither. Ajay trying to give the movie an Indie touch lost the plot totally and the movie ends up being a drag filled with boring dialogues and no suspense whatsoever.

Ajay is old and so is Kajol. He goes up to her while in a cruise liner and starts in a flirtatious way a story about two lovers who had met in a cruise liner too...25 years ago. Neither look young as they are supposed to be in the movie...anyways...Ajay a doctor falls in love with Kajol and they both get off the ship with Kajol having Ajay's contact information. One fine day Kajol shows up at his door step...they get married and also have a son...but as fate would have it Kajol gets (?? or develops...don't know what to say exactly) Alzheimer's and Ajay puts her away at a special care home...feeling all guilty and all that he brings her back home and raises both her as well as their son...

This is the story...in Notebook...you don't know till the very end who the old couple are and how they are related to the story...but here it is obvious from the very first scene giving away the crucial plot of the film...if you are going to remake an English movie which was highly successful then why are you wasting time trying to give it your own touch? From now on don't do that...it should be fairly obvious to you now that creativity is certainly not your strong point...

The movie has more sob-side to it than fun-side and the fun-side is actually very gay (not that there is anything wrong with it...) I for one surely regret seeing this movie...if you think otherwise do hit back...
