Friendship to Love: Ek Main Aur Ek Tu
Ek Main Aur Ek Tu is the new film from Karan Johar's production house.
It's the perfect Valentine's Day movie.
Or, is it? Well, it offers the age-old poser: Friendship or Love?Which is dearer? Aren't friendship and love overlapping emotions?
Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor play the lead pair in this rom-com.
The on-screen chemistry between Imran and Kareena is fantastic.
By a twist of fate, they start wrong, and need to get an annulment of their marriage!
Kareena plays the bubbly extrovert, and Imran is the shy guy.
The old-premise-packaged-smart product gets a major boost from the lead, I must say.
Plus, the screenplay is up-tempo and smooth. And the dialogues are witty.
The debutant director, Shakun Batra, has used the American setting to his advantage.
The goings on resemble American sitcoms. The ending too has a bit of freshness.
Amit Trivedi's music is a delight, and works perfectly in tandem with Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics. The supporting cast (Ratna Pathak Shah, Boman Irani, Ram Kapoor, Zenobia Shroff, Nikhil Kapoor, Mukul Chaddha, Manasi Scott) complements the lead pair's performance brilliantly. I am sure the urban, young-at-heart viewers would especially like the film.
