DONT EVEN BOTHER
, 15 Sep 2005
DON'T be fooled looking at the cover.
Luks like a nice cute film. but the reality is that it is a total disaster.
If Jeena Sirf Merre Liye is what passes as entertainment these days, it is no wonder that the film industry is having a disastrous year.
Two irritating kids, Karan and Pinky, act too big for their age (although neither of them can actually act) and believe they are in love with each other. Pinky is the daughter of a stuck-up multi-millionaire (Vijayendra Ghatge) while Karan is an orphan who apparently has no one to look after him, but still looks overfed. They are separated when Pinky's father drags her to Mumbai. The two kids exchange parting gifts just before Papa stuffs Pinky into the car. Before long, Karan finds a readymade father (Kader Khan) who takes him to his gaudy home in Mumbai which looks like a public library building from the outside and every bit a garish film set on the inside. Meanwhile, Pinky who, for some strange reason, grows up to be called Puja (Kareena Kapoor) is supposedly studying at Oxford University. All we find her doing is dancing on the streets of Paris. Don't ask why Paris and not Oxford. Puja devices a novel way of tracking down her childhood sweetheart. She gets the story of her life printed in a popular magazine and hopes that Karan will read it and show up. Naturally, everyone and their uncles, aunts and cats, reads this bestselling story. But Karan doesn't. Which basically means there are several more nerve-wracking songs to suffer before Karan and Puja/Pinky can unite forever and relieve us of our misery.
Finally, if anyone is wondering why this review is so blatantly rude, do watch Jeena Sirf Merre Liye. You will get the answer.
