Movie Review: Gori Tere Pyaar Mein

Release Date: 22 November 2013


This Punit Malhotra (the young 82 born Manish Malhotra's nephew of 'I Hate Luv Storys' fame) directed and Karan Johar, Dharma Productions movie falls in the "Cute-Romantic-Good Looking (both people and sets)- Culturally Educational (well, almost)- Ethnically pleasing- Family Watch" category. 

The Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor (seen together after 'Ek Main Aur Ek Tu'), Shraddha Kapoor (of 'Aashique 2' fame) and Anupam Kher starer keeps you interested right to the end, with good laughs too- in the first half- with beautiful cultural and ethnic dispays for the "all imbibing" NRIs eyes; in the second half- with just the right kind of village scenes in Gujarat- not "set-like", conveying the despair and yet not "poverty-focused" either.


The movie is a romantic comedy that revolves around a shallow self centered city boy, Sriram Venkat (Imran Khan) from a Tamil family and the be-the-change-you-want-to-see kind of political activist, Dia Sharma (Kareena Kapoor) from a Punjabi family.  They meet, clash and part ways. Except he follows her to where she moves, a village in Gujarat. 

It might not be Kareena Kapoor's or Imran Khan's best movie, they probably don't look their best either, but the movie is more than about them. Truly. He might not have looked Tamil at all, but the Tamil family (led by Nizhalgal Ravi as his dad) and wedding shown are fun to watch. Kareena's dad and mom in the movie have done an awesome job as the punjabi parents as well. Shraddha Kapoor has done well too.

So, to summarize, go ahead and watch the movie in the theater if you notice and cherish the little things that directors and producers of Punit and Karan caliber get right. The movie is totally a family entertainment package, so make sure you take the kids. Oh yes, the kids will love the "tooh tooh" song (apparently the word means derrière, the behind :) in Punjabi), composed by Vishal- Shekhar, sung by Mika Singh. The song is already a hit, doing well on the charts, we hear. Other songs, "Chingam Chabake" and "Dhat Teri Ki"
are kid friendly and doing good as well.

If you don't make it to the theater, no worries, do make sure you catch it's origial print in netflix or dvd- for this one is not worth a miss!
