Movie Review: Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is perfect watch for lovers

Love has its own twists

Stars: Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Boman Irani
Director: Shakun Batra
Music: Amit Trivedi

Rahul Kapoor (Imran Khan) is a man, or should we say boy, under complete control of his parents. The control is to such an extent that he has to do things like chew food 32 times, even iron his underwear and socks, neckties are knotted by his businessman dad and manners that may put a Victorian British to shame.

On the contrary, and indeed contrary, is Raina Braganza (Kareena Kapoor). Open to the 'n', Raina is everything Rahul is not including having been through half a dozen relationships (Rahul is still a virging at 25).

The two jobless people meet in Las Vegas and one Christmas evening, under the influence of a 'truckload' of booze, get hitched.

Here is where the story begins. The morning after, they agree on getting the darned marriage annulled. The story takes us to India and continues with some drama. The end is what is different and that's what makes the story click.

Debutant director Shakun Batra does a fine job of making a breezy rom-com without succumbing to the trite style of Karan Johar films even when KJo is the co-producer of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.

The parents (Ratna Pathak and Boman Irani) give a performance expected of them. As for Imran Khan, it is rather easy for him to portray roles which have a hint of serious expressions in them. Kareena is vivacious, quite similar to her Jab We Met character but much improved.

The film is light-hearted and humourous with a different ending. That was needed because otherwise the story could have been quite predictable. Valentine's Day is here and this film is worth watching for all whether a lover or not.
