Mera Pehla Pehla PyarMera Pehla Pehla Pyar : Movie Review

It is a flick that takes you back to your school days. Back to the times when you had your first crush. However, you may not have pursued the girl you loved to the extent the young protagonist in Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar does - right to the Eiffel Tower in a Tom Cruise style.

For teenagers, 'MP3' is a film they can directly relate to. For adults, it is a trip down the memory lane. And mind you, memory never fades when it comes to one's first love. You always remember it.




There may be nothing stellar about MP3, but everything about the film is surely refreshing. It has a refreshing storyline, two new faces (and captivating ones at that), youthful music (not necessarily addictive), good cinematography, and fine direction from Robby Grewal.

The film tells a sweet love story between Rohan ( Ruslaan Mumtaaz ) and Ayesha ( Hazel ).

Rohan and his group of friends enjoy the school life to the fullest. They attend classes, bunk them, talk about girls, talk about their sexy schoolteacher, play pranks, and do all the things that any pack of brats of their age would do.

Ayesha is a fresher who has come from abroad. Her first meeting with Rohan is a bit bizarre. After a series of interesting encounters, the two become friends and eventually fall in love.

What follows is the usual teasing and bantering by their friends. But there are also those who don't want the love story to succeed.

A misunderstanding drives Ayesha away from Rohan. She leaves for Paris. Separated from Ayesha, Rohan realizes how much he loves her. He vows to find her again. Even if he has to cross the continents and propose her right under the Eiffel Tower, just like Tom Cruise did to Katie Holmes.

The best thing about MP3 is that its director Robby Grewal has tried to tell the film's story not from an adult's perspective but from the point of view of a teenager. The jokes and pranks in the film are somewhat childish. But that doesn't put you off. Rather, you relate to them and smile indulgently.

The movie also works because of good performances by Ruslaan and Hazel. Ruslaan has a clear dialogue delivery. He is also very convincing in playing a besotted teen. Hazel is charmingly beautiful but is not so expressive in her acting. Among other actors, Kanwaljeet (as Rohan's father) does a good job.

Don't go expecting anything stellar from 'MP3' and you will find the movie eminently enjoyable.

Rating: ***
