    Verdict - Watch or revisit Baat ban jaaye instead of spending your time and money on this ajab o gareeb love story.

    Ajab Gazabb LoveWatch trailerRelease date : October 26, 2012

    After the disaster called kidnap in 2008 Sanjay Gadhvi resurfaces with ajab gazabb love. The plot is loosely similar to one of my favorite film called Baat ban jaaye directed by Bharat Rangachary.

    Rich guy Jacky Bhagnani falls in love in with a Nidhi Subbaiah who hates rich people. Jacky pretends to be a poor mechanic which leads to his family getting involved and everyone pretending to be poor. There is also Arjun Rampal with a solo credit slate to add to the conflict.

    The script appears designed for Jacky Bhagnani after the box office success of Faltu. If Faltu had a bunch of students faking an entire university this one has an entire family faking poverty.

    it is bland and boring and the only time I found myself smiling a bit was when Arshad Warsi made a guest appearance.

    Thankfully the conflicts in the film appear and get resolved instantly saving us from a lengthy melodrama. Towards the end it even gets into pravachan mode preaching about how the rich should take care of the poor and blah blah blah.

    The film smells of laziness and lethargy whether it's the actors, the songs or the direction.

    Even though this is Sanjay Gadhvi's sixth film, like kidnap it makes me wonder yet again if this is the same guy who made the two Dhoom's which I found quite entertaining.

    Word of mouth - Watch or revisit Baat ban jaaye instead of spending your time and money on this ajab o gareeb love story.

    Rating - ** (below average)

    Ticket meter - not worth a theatre visit.
