Himesh ReshammiyaAap Kaa Surroor : Movie Review

Fans of singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya will be quite pleased with his debut film as an actor - Aap Ka Suroor : The Moviee: The Real Luv Story'.

The movie, directed by Himesh's longtime friend Prashant Chaddha, is not based on Reshammiya's life. It is a fiction story that anyway answers some FAQs about the singer-musician.




In his acting debut, Himesh is too uptight before the camera. For the most part he wears a brooding look that has by now become quite typical of him. And the emotions that he expresses in the film are those of sadness, pain, anguish, helplessness and anger. In fact, after some time the movie begins to look like a vanity collage of Himesh Reshammiya.

'Aap Ka Surroor' tells the story of HR (Himesh), a rock star on a musical tour in Germany. He falls in love at first sight with Riaa ( Hansika Motwani ), the event manager of his concert.

On the other hand, there is Ruby ( Mallika Sherawat ), the partner of the organizer of the concert. Ruby is in love with HR. But he doesn't reciprocate her feelings. He loves Riaa.

HR's troubles begin with the murder of a TV journalist. The finger of suspicion points towards HR and he is arrested by Stuttgart police and put behind bars.

Convinced of HR's guilt, Riaa's father (Sachin Khedekar) fixes her marriage with another man. Now, HR has only one option: to run away from police captivity and find the real killer to prove his innocence before his ladylove is married off to someone else. Will he succeed?

'Aap Ka Surroor' is based on a wafer thin plot. On top of it, the film's script and dialogues are very filmy. But director Prashant Chaddha makes the flick interesting by telling the story very stylishly and at a brisk pace. In fact, the film is akin to an outstretched music video that packs in different ingredients necessary for a masala entertainer: romance, music, drama and action.

The film's USP is its music. Songs like 'Asalaam Valekum', 'Tera Mera Milna', 'Tanhainyan' and 'Mehbooba' are a delight to ears. However, the placement of 'Mehbooba' (with Mallika) could have been better.

While Himesh impresses as a music composer of the film, he fails to make any mark as an actor. He is stiff, he is conscious of the camera and he tries to act as if he has all the pain in the world. This act begins to look superficial after a while. Anyway, considering it is his first attempt at acting, some leniency should be shown in evaluating his performance.

Hansika Motwani is cute and gorgeous. Although she is confident in front of the camera, her acting skills need some polishing.

Mallika Sherawat looks sexy and plays her part of a vamp very well. The change in her character in the second half was unexpected.

Among other actors, Raj Babbar and Sachin Khedekar have very small roles. Shravan as Himesh's sidekick is superb.

On the whole, 'Aap Ka Surroor' is worth a watch if you are a Reshammiya fan. The film's story interweaves romance, mystery and thrills in a way that will appeal to the masses.

Rating: **1/2
