I See YouI See You : Movie Review

Don't expect heaven out of I See You and you will find it a cute, sweet, watchable film.

Without trying to offer anything stellar, 'I See You' at least tells a romantic story from a very fresh perspective : a man falling in love with a woman no one else can see. The film has light humour intermixed with romance. And its lilting music goes well with its somewhat frivolous theme.




The movie, Arjun Rampal 's first venture as a producer, marks the directorial debut of Vivek Agarwal. It also introduces newcomer Vipasha Agarwal .

The story is set in London. Rampal plays Raj Jaiswal, a handsome, flirtatious host of television show 'British Raj'. He makes his advances at any and every beautiful girl he encounters.

But Raj meets his match in Shivani (Vipasha), a mysterious girl who walks in and out of his house, his office and car at her own will. And the funny part is that no one except Raj can see or hear her.

As Raj goes about walking, talking, singing and dancing with Shivani, his friend Akshay Kapoor (Chunky Pandey) thinks he has gone mad. He takes Raj to a psychiatrist (Boman Irani).

However, it turns out that Raj is not insane and Shivani is not a figment of his imagination. The girl Raj knows and falls in love with is the spirit of Shivani who lies comatosed in a hospital.

What follows is the unraveling of a mystery.

Considering that it is the first film by director Vivek Agarwal, 'I See You' is not a bad attempt. However, a taut script and a more imaginative screenplay could have certainly helped the movie. Ashok Mehta's cinematography is a delight to the eyes while Vishal-Shekhar's soothing tunes are easy on the ears.

The movie does not demand any exceptional acting skills from its key players. Arjun Rampal, handsome as ever, plays his part with conviction. Newcomer Vipasha looks very promising. She is particularly good in the introductory scene and some portions in the second half.

Chunky Pandey adds his brand of humour. Boman Irani is a bit over the top. Sophie Choudhary adds her share of oomph. Sonali Kulkarni has a very small part while Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan play cameos in the song 'Subah Subah'.

All in all, 'I See You' promises light-hearted entertainment. There are indeed some loopholes in the script, but then, who wants to split hairs. Seen without cynicism, 'I See You' turns out to be a cute, timepass film.
