    Verdict - Funny and entertaining

    Ek Main Aur Ekk TuWatch trailerRelease date : February 10, 2012

    First things first, this movie is no where close to the hollywood rom com flick 'What happens in Vegas'. Even though the promos suggest similarity between the two movies they are as different as apples and oranges. Having said that, the movie is a fast breezy comedy flick with a gutsy ending. With punch lines that only strengthen a good screenplay, this movie is sure to sprint towards the best films of 2012.

    Rahul is a guy whose 25 year old life has been controlled by his parents. He bumps into Riana at a psychology session when he loses his job. Riana is a fairly opposite person to Rahul and the two kick off a good friendship and ultimately in a drunken state get married. Since the two are stuck together for 2 weeks till they can get their marriage annulled, they bond together. Riana pulls Rahul out of his misery and shows him the entrance to a new world.

    Rarely do we come across a comedy flick, where the dialogs and punch lines are good throughout the movie's running time. Shakun Batra who is also credited as the main writer for this movie does a fantastic job in adding dialogs with depth. Both the characters of Rahul and Riana are well written and leave an equal impact in the movie. The movie runs at a crisp pace and has a running time of only 1 hour 55 minutes. The calender animation added to the movie was something to look out for.

    Amit Trivedi and Amitabh Bhattacharya are probably the best music director - lyricist combo in the recent times. Songs like Aahatein, Gubbare and Kar chal na shuru Tu have tremendous lyrical value to go with the catchy music. The songs drive the video in the movie and hence avoid from being speed bumps for the movie.

    When I went for the movie, I was almost sure that Kareena was going to overpower her costar big time (read as 'kachha chaba jayegi'). To my astonishment, Imran came out as the winner among the two. His actions, mannerisms and dialog delivery were just brilliant for the part. This has to be his best effort till date. Kareena reprises Geet from Jab we met but is extremely likable as always. Of the support cast, Ratna Pathak stands out.

    Shakun Batra had an impressive resume as an assistant director. He grabs this opportunity given to him by Karan Johar with both hands. Not only does he do a wonderful job in penning the movie, he does a hell of a job behind the camera executing it as well. This is one story you would love to hear.

    Dharma productions is on a roll. First Agneepath and then Ek main aur ekk tu in quick succession. This film is surely not to be missed.

    Rating: 7.7 / 10.0

    Reasons to watch:
    1) Wonderful screenplay
    2) Imran's best effort till date
    3) Awesome ending

    Reasons to skip:
    1) Could wait for it to come out on DVD

    Repeat Value: Several times on DVD
