The U Me Aur Hum Movie Review

Emotionally Stirring
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 3.5/5

Watching Ajay Devgan's directorial debut 'U Me Aur Hum' is an emotionally stirring experience.

What's up with Bollywood actors? One after the other they are proving to be better directors than those already in the business for years. After Aamir Khan , it is Ajay Devgan who stumps you with his finesse behind the camera (in front of it as well) in 'U Me Aur Hum', which is a moving, evocative, passionate, and painful tale told straight from the heart. Hats off to you, Devgan, for that.

Not only is the film rich in emotions, it is full of witty humour, thanks to intelligently and imaginatively written script, dialogues, and fine performances by the supporting cast.

'U Me Aur Hum' is a simple story told in a well-structured way.

A bespectacled, middle-aged father of a young teenager bets with his son to woo a woman sitting alone on a restaurant table. The man (Ajay Devgan), somewhere in his mid-forties, walks up to the lady ( Kajol ), as old as him, and strikes up a conversation. He tells her a story - a story of love at first sight between Ajay and Piya.

Ajay (Devgan) is aboard a cruise liner on an excursion trip with his two friends ( Karan Khanna and Sumeet Raghavan ) and their female companions ( Isha Sharvani and Divya Dutta ).

On a night of revelry, Ajay spots Piya (Kajol), who serves drinks in the bar. It is love at first sight for him. But she rebuffs his advances. He tries various ways to woo her. He breaks into her cabin and reads her personal diary, her 'Book of Possibilities'. Being a psychiatrist he learns what she desires and then uses the right tricks to win her heart. Win it he does, but only to break it himself by telling her the truth. After some heartache the couple gets together again and gets married. Thereby begins the journey of U and Me.

As the protagonist says in the film - “Problems never cease. But they are never bigger than a person”. So is the marriage of Ajay and Piya hit by a calamity, a medical one. Will they pull it through and become Hum. Or will they drift apart.

Devgan follows a non-linear path to tell the story. Told almost in a flashback, the tale acquires wheels within wheels as the protagonist recounts the instances of his marital tragedy to his friends. And very imperceptibly, Devgan throws hints about Piya's muddled mind from the start. The small 'reminder' notes pasted on the mirror of her cabin - to remind her of small tasks - when he breaks into it, or her forgetting the right time of her morning Salsa practice - they all point towards her impending fate. And you connect the dots as the story unfolds.

This is intelligent storytelling, supported by incredibly well-written, thought-provoking dialogues from Ashwani Dhir . Vishal Bharadwaj 's music complements the story well, but the movie could have done without the song “Saheli Jaisa Saiyyan”. It seems deliberately squeezed in the narrative.

I have not yet seen Ajay Devgan act better in any other film. His performance, particularly in the second half, is arresting, when he looks to a 'T' a man struck by an unfortunate tragedy. He convincingly brings forth the pain, the dilemma, the inner turmoil and even the selfishness of his character.

Kajol fares pretty well, playing a complex character. She mostly keeps herself restrained but still goes over the top at places. But a commendable performance overall.

The two get solid support from Sumeet Raghavan and Divya Dutta who play an unhappily married couple, perpetually bickering about one thing or another. And there is also Karan Khanna and Isha Sharvani, playing happily unmarried couple. The best thing about all these characters is that they are well-etched and provide a lot of humour to the film.

Here is a sample - Divya and Sumeet are fighting furiously when a passerby asks: “Are you mad?”. Divya replies: “No, we are married.” Or when Karan riddles his friend: “What would be the name of a girl jo apne baap ko dhakka deti hai”. When no one is able to guess, he replies: “Pushpa...Push..Pa”.

See, it has that kind of humour.

To sum it up, 'U Me Aur Hum' is mostly a well-crafted film, barring a few rough edges that don't stand out much. Above all, it is a touching, moving tale that will change something inside you and make you a better companion.

Don't miss it.

Music Review : Hummable indeed (3/5)
Trust Vishal Bharadwaj to come up with something catchy and melodious in every album he composes for. The talented musician has his own unique way of blending earthy Indian melodies with western music. And in the album of 'U Me Aur Hum', we get a glimpse of Bharadwaj's talent as a singer as well....
