    Verdict - It would have been a decent watch if it released three four years back, but in 2012, its surely a disappointment............................

    Teri Meri KahaaniWatch trailerRelease date : June 22, 2012

    This movie was no doubt very well hyped as it had the lead pair of the then love-birds Shahid Kapoor & Priyanka Chopra and also was helmed by director Kunal Kapoor who boasts of a strong record of hits like Fanaa & Hum Tum. Further, the movie had several ingredients of being a perfect rom-com such as catchy songs, good dance moves, brilliantly designed set locations, sexy costumes and a colorful treatment to a love story. But the problem is that the plot of the movie comprises of the same love story between the two lead protagonists being shown in different eras with little or even no linking or bridging in between and adding to that there are barely any good dialogues to support the fantasy love.

    Also, the issue with this movie is that, this concept is good for a short film or a short video. But, the director rolls out a two and a half hour long journey trying to entice the audience with an amateurish & age-old song tried & tested approach to a film having a wafer thin plot. A wide yawn is a definite result on the faces of audience in a phase when the cinema and viewers are evolving with rapid pace as movies like Gangs of Wasseypur are setting milestones and are proving to be the much needed dose of realistic cinema that the audiences were craving for since ages.

    But, still some makers are trying to cash in on the formulaic method of Bollywood cinema which involves selling dreams and pushing the fluffiness of already sweet rom-coms without a trace of worldly affairs in it. No doubt, Shahid Kapoor is as graceful on the screen as ever, but still you feel that he still needs some acting workshops in theatre to acquire some mind-blowing acting skills which are now a much needed requisite in the market as the star system is being neutralized by good content
