Anjaana-Anjaani Review- Anjaana-Anjaana Movie Review
Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir Kapoor
Director- Siddhharth Anand
Star Cast- Priyanka Chopra, Ranbir Kapoor
The movie stars Priyanka Chopra, who plays ‘Kiara’ and Ranbir Kapoor playing the role of ‘Akash’. The story starts on the Golden Gates Bridge showing Kiara and Akash standing on it to commit suicide, co-incidentally standing because of the same reason- ‘Betrayal In Love’.
Both of them see each other and then the sad wrinkles on their faces suddenly disappears, they both get a new meaning of their lives and give up the idea of suicide. The story takes off very well, you will start imaging about the adventures in their lives, but unluckily the story takes an inspiration from DDLJ, ‘Girl On The Bridge’ etc etc and proceeds ahead.
Mesmerizing foreign locations, Manish Malhotra’s designed outfit give a high end fashion touch to the characters. But what is this? Both the characters in the movie are supposed to look sad, struggling as they just can’t overcome the deceit aspects in their lives so very easily!
But, Kiara and Akash look like they have just stepped out of an international fashion show dressed in the over-stylish costumes and having fun like mad in Las Vegas and San Francisco. Guess, the movie was ‘supposed’ to be taking that fashion route as there is nothing of substance to show in it.
However, you will see many instances of more suicide attempts in the movie, but naturally all in vain as the strength of the flick is the scenic locations, songs and the romance between the two.
A scene from DDLJ has been literally borrowed by director Siddharth, when Kiara and Akash get drunk at night and then awake in a shocked state in the morning, petrified over the fact of having sex at night. Both of them argue and it goes on.
Some scenes in the movie are really funny, one being, when Akash threatens Kiara of pissing when both of them are stuck in a sea! The dialogues between the two are humorous and frank, but the story is nothing out of the ordinary, it just falls flat on its face.
The national award winning actress seems to have a lot of fun in the movie and in all it looks like as if Ranbir and Priyanka went together on a holiday, later picturised as a movie! Songs are rocking with music from the deadly duo of Vishal and Shekhar. See it at your own risk, could be mentioned in the starting of the movie!
