Kya Love Story HaiKya Love Story Hai : Movie Review

Don't be misled by this movie's title. Kya Love Story Hai is crammed with obvious clichés of a love triangle.

It appears that the writers of this movie as well as the debutant director Lovely Singh did not want to strain their creative thinking faculties. The movie's story is utterly hackneyed.

The plot meanders across a predictable path during which several songs are deliberately squeezed in to test the patience of a viewer. The patience truly begins to run thin when the almost non-existent story is stretched to the point of snapping. The drama, the heartburn, the emotional conflict continues endlessly until the climax, which any stable-minded viewer could have predicted even before the intermission.

The movie begins on a rocking note with Kareena Kapoor looking over-glamourous in the catchy number 'It's Rocking'. And you sit assured in your seat thinking that perhaps the song's title alludes to the movie about to unspool. But what unspools makes your jaw drop.

Arjun ( Tusshar Kapoor ) is an idle youth who falls head-over-heels in love with Kaajal ( Ayesha Takia ) at first sight. After a bit of chasing he manages to get introduced to her and befriend her. Although Arjun loves Kaajal, he fails to realize that he doesn't fit the image of her dream man. Kaajal doesn't want to go around with an idler. She wants a man who has made his own path and succeeded in life through self-belief and confidence, both of which Arjun lack.

So our pygmy hero writes her a letter expressing his feelings. And Kaajal chances upon the letter, but she doesn't know whom it is written for. It is then Arjun asks her how she would respond if the girl in the letter were she. No prizes for guessing Kaajal's reply. And then our hero vanishes from her life.

Kaajal then meets a rich and successful entrepreneur Ranveer (Karan Hukku). The ice breaks between them with a war of words. Kaajal gives the haughty and high-headed Ranveer some piece of mind, and he decides that she is the woman he ought to spend his rest of life with.

Though Ranveer fits the image of her dream man, he doesn't give her the same attention as Arjun did. By the way, Arjun re-enters the scene. Now, he is no longer an idler and has a big business deal under his belt.

The love triangle is formed when he sees Kaajal engaged to another man. On the other hand, Kaajal also sees in Arjun what she never saw before: love. Even a bird-brained moviegoer can predict who will get the girl.

'Kya Love Story Hai' reeks of everything that is stale. An old wine stirred in a new bottle may become more potent, but an old and beaten-to-death story rehashed and recycled only make a movie painful to watch.

There isn't much to write about the performances. Ayesha Takia is just about average. Tusshar Kapoor looks too committed to play his part right. Karan Hukku is uptight.
