Movie Review: 'Hamari Adhuri Kahani' is a lacklustre affair!

Star Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan, Rajkumar Rao


Director: Mohit Suri


Producer: Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt


Claps For: Songs, Vidya Balan, Rajkumar Rao


Slaps For: Cliched dialogues, direction


Popcorn Refill: Interval


Story: Vasudha Prasad (Vidya Balan) is trapped in a loveless marriage and has a young son, Saanjh. Her over-posessive and chauvinist husband Hari (Rajkumar Rao ) has gone missing since five years. To meet both the ends, she works as a florist in a plush hotel. Enter our hero, Aarav Ruparel ( Emraan Hashmi), a multi-millionaire hotelier who falls for this damsel in distress. After much denial and emotional turmoil, Vasudha realizes that she too loves Aarav and confesses the same. Just when life seems picture-perfect for these two lovers, Vasudha's dark past in the form of Hari catches up with her. Now what will be the fate of their star-crossed love story?


Performance: The talented Vidya Balan is just reduced to a whimpering heroine high on glycerine, who keeps clinging to her mangalsutra as if her life depends on it. Blame it on her role! Inspite of this, Vidya still manages to tap some emotions in the audience. Emraan Hashmi is good in his part. But he needs to sharpen his acting skills. Rajkumar Rao is brilliant as the psychotic husband. Wish we could see more of him in this film!


Direction: Mohit Suri, the maker of intense love stories like 'Aashiqui 2' and 'Ek Villain' seems to have lost his 'Midas' touch in his latest directorial. What could have been an heart-wrenching piece, instead turns out to be an insipid tale! Shagufta Rafique's dialogues lack the emotional depth and ends up inducing unintentional laughs even during an intense moment. The film boosts of some picturesque locations that look stunning on-screen.


Combo-on-Offer: High doses of melodrama + cheesy dialogues


Verdict: We give the film Slaps for the cliched dialogues and the regressive story-telling.
