Managed to catch the 'premier' show of Love Aaj Kal in the new city which is my temporary work-place for a few days. The crowd mainly comprised of college-going-youngsters which contributed to a hell lot of enthusiasm and noise in the theatre.
The first half of the movie when the story was developing, seemed to be promising but the second half is so bad that I don't even have appropriate words to descibe my disappointment. Saif has lost his famous 'comic-touch'. And he doesn't look great. And it is apparent that he did this movie half-heartedly. Or may be it is because he was more into the job of 'producing' this movie. Deepika Padukone looked fine and acted ok too... May be i didnt expect much from her anyway. The character she played in 'Love Aaj Kal' seemed like a off-shoot of her character in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'. Amongst the few things which I liked in the movie were the songs- "Ye dooriyan...", "We Twist" and "Chor Bazaari". Knowing the fact that Pritam is the music director of this movie, some of these songs might be 'inspired' from Korean TV serials. Right now I am not aware of that and i like the songs :).
'Love Aaj Kal' is a tale of two confused people in love. It takes a marriage and a divorce to make them understand that they actually love each other. I found it quite foolish actually and that irritated me.
One last point... Somebody should advise Rahul Khanna to stay away from movies.
