Gori Tere Pyar Mein


Village Idiot

Director Punit Malhotra authored I Hate Luv Storys and returns with this Kareena-Imran tale where opposite poles remain opposite for a long time before hot-footing towards sangam!  Produced by the champ of love, Karan Johar, it tracks the done-to-death plot of a city slicker who likes his babes cool and cars fast and a young, idealistic lass, passionate about things and issues wronged, with activism in her DNA.  She cannot stand anything or anyone – frivolous.  Unfortunately, that brilliantly defines our chocolate-boy hero who, however, after sampling the evil pleasures of corrupt materialism, has a dramatic change of heart, drops everything – including the cute Shraddha Kapoor – and heads for the village where his gori has gone for social work.  He shows his magnificent obsession that he can go veg, make friends with gobar and all other rural attractions and generally go shoulder-to-shoulder to share her version of life.  She is convinced and aal is well.


A dumber story couldn’t have happened, repetitive, clichéd and formulae-ridden as hell!  Forget the idealistic babe dancing at weddings and romancing, the whole premise is such a y-a-w-n!  Kareena Kapoor Khan looks stunning and desperately tries to recreate Geet of Jab We Met, but the script defeats her Herculean effort and ends up singing about her tooh!  Imran Khan is super as the city bred Mr. Cool, but once in the village, is a very cute disaster!  He is just not his mamujaan Aamir and GTPM can never be a Lagaan.  High on production values, slick and sexy with some cute musical numbers, this Karan Johar toss-out is unlikely to receive any pyaar from the viewers.  Too infantile and fake.
