Review: The writer and director Imtiaz Ali narrates the 2020 ‘Love Aaj Kal’ in the same format as his great success as a director in 2009 by the same name. However, the love stories are fresh with a different set of conflicts that vary over time. Ali makes it relevant to the show the contrast between the small city-love traditional hard but that was simple compared to the contemporary urban love that is complex and messed-up.
The protagonist of Ali Zoe is the embodiment of the latter. A complicated character, who has a five-year plan to celebrate and launch their own event management company before ‘set’ in a committed relationship. While Sara Ali Khan is the right age to play Zoe, it falls short of convincingly pulling the complexity of Firebrand and fiercely independent character. Sara has a commanding screen presence and looks beautiful, but its performance does not quite make the following Zoe. Kartik Aaryan is good as Raghu youth, whose transformation from a shy little spiteful stranger to a big city Casanova, is credible. As Veer, however, even Kartik fails to do more than follow docilely all the love of your life and be at your disposal. Randeep Hooda but that leaves a lasting impression even less screen time. Sporting a handlebar mustache and the crisp linen shirts, underrated actor looks very handsome. It is aptly cast for the role it is rather like the character of Rishi Kapoor in the original. In fact, his story is much more interesting, relatable and entertainment. Ali uses tones vivid and beautiful backdrops to recreate the love story of Raghu with Leena played by newcomer Arushi Sharma, who delivers quite effectively. However, the flashback story is interrupted way too many times to accommodate the non-linear narrative of the film. While the emotional narrative of the film is casual in their approach, almost no light moments.
The soundtrack of the film is rich in melody adding value to the account. The short running time is another advantage with an intriguing first half, but predictable in the second half.
sets ‘Love Aaj Kal’ free to celebrate complex characters and dysfunctional relationships with the universal emotion of love at its core. some emotional moments along the way is created, but not just leave you spellbound.
