I Hate Luv Storys movie review

A Hatke Romantic Saga
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

I Hate Luv Storys keeps no pretension of imparting deep gyan on the matters of the heart; nor does it tell a unique romantic tale that sends your heart pumping on the double. No. The story is simple, and quite predictable at that. And if you expect to see the clichés like a hero rushing to the airport to meet the heroine, or him bending down on his knees and proposing her with a bouquet of flowers, or - worse - closing his eyes and seeing her face, then you’re right. I Hate Luv Storys has it all. But it’s been presented in a way that doesn’t make you cringe in your seat.

Full points to director Punit Malhotra who makes a confident debut with a film that’s sprinkled with humour from start to end. The first half, littered with the antics of the irrevocably flippant Jay, just whizzes by. The second half drags a bit and the story comes to a standstill when the setting shifts to New Zealand. Admittedly, the film’s climax too isn’t as moving as one would have liked it to be. But no complaints. Overall, the movie rocks.

Imran Khan shines as the carefree Jay whose life goes for a toss after he falls prey to what he hated most - love. There’s a laudable ease in Imran’s performance and no overt attempt at underplaying his character, which works to the movie’s advantage. Sonam Kapoor is excellent as the dreamy eyed Simran who can be vulnerable when in love, and stoic when jilted. Samir Soni is delightful playing the over-expressive filmmaker who loves his mom and, of course, the magic of romance. Sammir Dattani performs well his part of an unexciting, goody-goody lover who doesn’t forget sending his girlfriend white flowers, of all colours.

The slack second half and average songs apart, I Hate Luv Storys is an enjoyable experience with a few touching romantic moments that won’t make anyone dig their heads into popcorn.

Go for it.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5
