She said 'Kaho Na Pyar Hai' to Hrithik Roshan and the nation went bonkers. But 2,000 miles away, everything is not going so well.

A good storyline, good star cast, impressive set designs, and fabulous locations. But somehow none of it works. For the simple reason that there is no soul in it. The director and the hero (we are told that Pavan Kalyan is particular of every little detail of the film a la Aamir Khan) are more interested in living up to Pavan Kalyan's carefully cultivated Toli Prema image. And it is this, if nothing else, that has marred the film.

An ad filmmaker falls in love with a college girl, the parents on both the sides agree, and they decide to get married... but not till the girl completes her studies. During the one year waiting period Satan doesn't let them be idle. So, the girl has a bet with the guy that he cannot get any girl to love him the way she does. Our hero agrees and then begins a whole new process of wooing the Kaho Na Pyar Hai girl.

The point here is not whether or not the Kaho Na... girl falls into the tender trap. The hammy way in which the whole film moves forward, and the unnecessary collision sequences (neatly choreographed, by the way) with the heroine's brother and the stupid sentimental scene in the end, all do their best to make you sick.

It's high time Prakash Raj stopped playing those my-sister-is-my-everything kind of roles. It is not only monotonous, it's irritating as well. We begin to hate the man who stole our hearts as Narasimha in Antahpuram.

If you are a Pavan Kalyan fan then it is definitely worth it. Kudos to the director for not opting for the hooligan dance sequences. This way you will be able to savor the locations. While Amisha Patel looks like a girl lost in the woods, Renu Desai puts up a good performance. The lesser said about Prakash Raj the better.
