Loveshhuda has been directed by ad film director Vinay Misra. Yes, he is an ad film director and has the vision to create magic on-screen for a few minutes. And the same happens in bits and pieces in this movie too. But what about the movie as a whole? Find out….
Star Cast: Girish Kumar, Navneet Kaur Dhillon, Naveen Kasturia, Tisca Chopra, Sachin Khedekar and Yash Pandit.
Director: Vaibhav Misra
Producer: Vijay Galani and Pratik Galani
Claps for: Girish Kumar’s act post interval, Navneet Kaur Dhillon, Supporting cast, Direction and Cinematography
Slaps for: Girish Kumar’s act in the 1st half, Songs, Storyline and Dragged Climax.
What’s New: Nothing
Popcorn Refill: Anytime you want!
Story: ‘Loveshhuda’ is Gaurav’s love story. He wakes up on his engagement day next to a beautiful girl he has no knowledge about. He embarks on a journey to know who she is, and ends up falling for her when he meets her.
Performances: Watching Girish Kumar in the first half would make you think- this man has not changed a bit since his ‘Ramaiya Vastavaiya’ days. And then comes the second half where he impresses in a much matured, silent and intense avatar.
This could have easily been the turning point for Girish Kumar’s acting career. He gets a role which has so much layers to it. He has the expressions for every situation. But his acting skills are still a bit immature. He seriously needs to work on his dialogue delivery which takes away the depth of the scene as well as his character. Comedy is surely not his cup of tea. Also, he should do more of intense roles (he is really good at it) than playing the cool and goofy boy.
Navneet Kaur Dhillon looks gorgeous and will you mesmerized with her performance. She is a wonderful actress and hopefully her upcoming movies would help her polish her acting skills even more.
The supporting cast has done a good job- be it Tisca Chopra, Sachin Khedekar or Navin Kasturia.
Yash Pandit looks aged. His receding hairline and bald patches are easily visible. No wonder he hardly gets any screen time!
Direction: Vaibhav Misra has tried his best to make this movie an ultimate feel-good romantic flick that a couple might prefer watching together inside a blanket on a cold evening. But the story and the screenplay disappoint him. Here’s why Loveshhuda fails as a movie-
a) A man who is so drunk that he cannot even walk properly is shown doing break dance with 20 other dancers and that too, with perfection (okay Girish, take the credit)!
b) In normal situations when a man is sad, we console him by saying- Sab theek ho jayega.
But Navneet’s dialogue goes somewhat like- Don’t be sad about what will happen tomorrow. Kya pataa tum aaj marr hi jao!
c) Girish pukes on the camera. Yes, the screen gets filled with his puke for a few seconds. *slow claps*
d) Dragged Climax. Like way too dragged……………………………………………….
e) Songs that try to capture the essence of the alcohol-drinking and always-partying youth but miserably fail.
Loveshhuda is a film that neither falls into the bad category, nor the good one. It has some really adorable romantic moments; but overall it fails to impress.
Combo-On-Offer: Romance + Drama
Verdict: We give the movie SLAPS for being a predictable and dragged love story!
