Is movie ke baare mein ab Kya Kehna? "A story never told before," declares the caption of the movie, and very few leave the theater hoping that it'll be told again. Reckless teenage attitude, a Casanova, lost love and the importance of a family form the crux of the movie. The flow of the movie is fine enough, but a certain nonchalance in its making shows through.
Now, for the story. There is this happy family with mama, papa and three sons and, of course, the laadli beti, living in peace in the hills of Himachal Pradesh. Living in the same hills is our 'goody-goody' childhood friend and silent lover, Chandrachud Singh. And living in the very same hills is our playboy, rich and spoilt Chhote Nawab, Saif.
Not paying any attention to the no-nos of her elders, Preity falls in love with Saif who, only to her, is so obviously in love with her. Well, belonging to the modern school of thought, our heroine makes 'The Mistake' and ends up carrying Saif's child. Much before that, Saif makes a safe exit by enlightening everyone upon his character.
For Priety, the saga of 'To Have or Not to Have' the child starts, and the realization of true love too. Whether she keeps the child and whether she ends up with Saif or Chandrachud is the rest of the story. Well, must say that the story ends in a different way and is probably going to be the plus point of the movie.
Priety Zinta looks and expresses better as the movie progresses. But, Lord, she definitely needs a course on voice modulation. Chandrachud is good in his role and is sweet most of the time. Saif looks horrible with his hair and his dressing, which is exasperating. Anupam Kher gives us those lighter moments and the others are just about passable.
The movie has got something to interest, but it could have been made in a much better way.
