Director Puneet Malhotra teams up again with Karan Johar (Producer) and Imran Khan (leading actor) with his new love story, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ which is now out in theaters. The leading lady Kareena Kapoor Khan, popularly known as ‘bebo’ makes a comeback after her marriage to the Nawab. You can surely make out the post marital changes in her facial looks and expressions.
The movie is quite predictable. Both the characters are totally opposite and as someone in the past said ‘Opposites attract’, the genre of the flick follows this track. This couple was seen before in ‘Ek main aur Ek tu’ and unfortunately carry the same fade chemistry. It feels as if one is watching the same movie, same characters and same story. One thing found common between Sriram Venkat (Imran Khan) and Dia (Kareena Kapoor Khan) is both belong to a big fat wealthy Indian family.
Dia is a girl who believes in charity and works for poor people whereas Sriram is a lazy architect who returns from America and believes being calm and composed in life. He wants his lady love to be the same and this lands them up into a breakup. How much more predictable you want the story to be? Of course now the hero has to run behind his lady to get things back to square one and land up into a small village where Dia is to help poor people.
To win the lady love, actor keeps on doing things that impresses her. You will also see the Aashiqui girl, Shraddha Kapoor and Isha Gupta in an item song. The songs of the movie, none of it is soothing that you keep on chanting it on a loop except the track ‘Naina’.
Puneet fails to portray a good direction. The story line is weak and moreover is very predictable. You won’t find a ‘WOW’ factor in the movie. The Tamilian family v/s the Punjabi family is a repeated love story. If you are fond of such love stories you can surely enjoy the second half of the movie while the first half is just free addition to stretch it to 2 hours 28 minutes. Guess the marriage factor did not add lucky charm to the lady’s carrier.
