Kucch Luv Jaisa - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Kucch Luv Jaisaa. What makes some love stories potent is when the love between two individuals becomes apparent, yet remains unexpressed. The two almost arrive on the cusp of opening the floodgates of their heart, but step back from the precipice, with stifled emotions and a heavy heart. Director Barnali Ray Shukla’s film Kucch Luv Jaisaa tries to tap that very emotion, though in a somewhat slipshod way.

The film’s story is refreshingly different, but the pace at which it unspools could have been tighter.

Madhu (Shifaali Shah) is a bored housewife. Over the years love has fizzled out of her marriage with her business minded husband (Sumit Raghavan) and now she just goes listlessly though the grind of her domestic chores. But when her husband forgets her birthday on February 29, she’s mighty miffed. Coming once in four years, the birthday is apparently an important day for the lady and instead of moping over her husband’s apathy, she decides to go out solo, glam up, buy a car, and enjoy the day like there’s no tomorrow.

In a coffee shop, she bumps into Raghav (Rahul Bose) a criminal running away from cops. Mistakenly, Madhu takes Raghav to be a detective and requests her to let her spend a day with him on a case. Raghav plays along. The two check into a resort. Thereafter the film seems to stagnate, though there are moments pregnant with muted romance and sexual awkwardness.

Kucch Luv Jaisa could have been better on many fronts. For starters, the story might have had more juice in it and the dialogues less trite. Secondly, the casting could’ve been better. While Shifaali Shah veritably fits into the role of a housewife who gets a swift makeover from a dowdy woman to a glamourous lady with cleavage revealing dresses that make even the mannequins ogle, she does ham her part at times. Rahul Bose is a tad too civil to play a gun carrying, tapori forger on the run. His dialogue delivery stays within a monotone and his deadpan expression used more often than not to reveal the cold-bloodedness of a criminal out to reform himself.

Kucch Luv Jaisa does have a few light-hearted moments. The story also culminates well, but not before dragging for a good part of the second half.

In a nutshell, Kucch Luv Jaisaa is strictly timepass.
