Apparently, Rajshri wanted to make a movie that would appeal to both the urban and the regular viewer (thats why the small town girl Vs the mumbai ka dude) track. My hunch is that it will better unite uncle/aunties with their beta/betis... if all of them watch the movie together, that is. And this is another film without a villain - "hum bhi achhe, tum bhee achhe" types.
The plot is so old that it might actually grow fungus on it, if kept untouched for a while. Young girl with dreams (Sandeepa Dhar) with a progressive mother but an authoritarian daddy is sent to Mumbai for college. (Authoritarian daddy used to be progressive bade bhaiya in previous Rajshree ventures, Mohnish Behl).
Anyways, girl meets college stud (Akshay Oberoi) and thereafter the entire college setup becomes a farce where everybody sings, dances and does a lot of drama. Soon, daddy drops by, and the girl is bundled off home to be married to a rich groom. The college yo gang comes home, and miraculously, starts helping off with the marriage ceremonies, chipping in here and there with hard work and financial help. Finally Mohnish Behl does an Amrish Puri (DDLJ style), and accepts the lovers, albeit after a extended climax (whatever happened to college and exams ?).
The good part is that you wont realize that the script is such a dud when you are watching it, as the sequences are breezy and do not bore (apart from the climax which could have done with crisper direction). The lead pair acts well, and the other characters are not much to brag about, being stereotyped long back. The music is somewhat a dampener - A 'Ramji 24X7' track seems to be straightaway lifted from Hum Aapke Hain Koun, while the rest of the songs seem to be more of fillers than chartbusters.
This one's an out-and-out family film, with marriages, traditions et al (and a Rajasthani setting). It remains to be seen whether multiplex audiences would be willing to believe in HAHK type mushy love stories brimming with sacrifice.
It's difficult to criticize a Rajshri film, having grown up seeing generations loving them. So I will give you a couple of reasons to watch it instead :-) - A decent lead pair, and clean, family style romance.
