The Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! Movie Review

'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein!': A Love Story you wouldn’t Hate!
By Aparajita Ghosh
Rating: 2.5/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Gori Tere Pyaar Mein!. Though there’s a bit of been-there-seen-that-wasted-my-money kinda feel that one gets from director Punit Malhotra’s second film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein!, the rom-com does pack in enough fun and drama for one to not hate this love story.

Sriram (Imran Khan), the most unlikely looking Tamilian, gets engaged to Vasudha (Shraddha Kapoor), another Tamilian. But there’s a catch. Both of them are in love with someone else: she with a Punjabi environmentalist, and he with a Punjabi social worker Dia (Kareena Kapoor). As Vasudha prods Sriram to talk about Dia, the film slips into a series of flashbacks, recreating a tale of friendship and love gone kaput by the duo’s different outlooks towards life. Dia, you see, is an indomitable social reformer not given to Sriram’s partying ways. The two break up and Sriram’s parents fix their architect son’s marriage with a Tamil Brahmin girl, hoping that it would put their self-absorbed son’s vain life back on track.

On the wedding day, Sriram clutches his veshti and bolts from the mandap at the speed of a Milkha Singh. He later lands up in Jhumli village in Gujarat, where Dia has been staying for the last 11 months to make it a better place. Dismissive of her grand plans at first, Sriram eventually sees the light of the day and finds a purpose to put his architectural skills to use, construct a bridge in Jhumli village and in the course make way to Dia’s heart. But a corrupt collector (Anupam Kher) throws a spanner in his works.

Riddled with usual Bollywood tropes, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is a film that warrants a little suspension of disbelief. One marvels at Kareena Kapoor’s social crusader character who takes up a raft of issues only a female Krrish, clad in six simple suits sans cape can accomplish. Be it corruption, AIDS or land-grabbing, nothing is beyond her. She also teaches the kids in the village, starts an orphanage, and at one point even initiates building the bridge herself. And when Dia’s not doing any of this, she steals glances at Sriram and shakes her booty to 'Tooh' (watch it) and 'Chingam Chabake' (watch it).

Imran Khan’s character Sriram shows more variation and growth. From a party animal making out with a hot chick (Esha Gupta) at the start of the film, he transforms into a mature loverboy who comes of age by the end of the story.

Dia and Sriram’s characters are diametric opposites. How they bridge this gap is what Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is about.

Director Punit Malhotra of I Hate Luv Storys charts a safe course in his second outing backed by producer Karan Johar. Though the story is as predictable as it gets, to Punit’s credit he never lets the film run out of steam.

Acting performances are nothing to rave about. Imran Khan is mostly the usual self we’ve seen before but with a better funny streak. Kareena Kapoor’s Dia is somewhat a mix of Geet from Jab We Met and Yasmin from Satyagraha. It’s a spirited, convincing performance no doubt, but there’s only so much an actor can do with tackily written characters.

Don’t go looking for realism in GTPM. Don’t strain your senses for finer nuances or details. Rather, be prepared for erratically placed songs, ill-composed (Vishal-Shekhar) at that.

GTPM promises nothing more than popcorn entertainment. On that count it delivers.

Rating: **1/2
