Milenge Milenge - Agar tum time par aaye to…

Kareena Kapoor plays Priya, an orphan who believes in tarot cards, destiny and all that jazz. During a visit to the tarot card reader (Kirron Kher) she comes to know the date when she'd meet her soul mate. Enter Immy (Shahid Kapoor),having all the qualities the tarot card reader said Priya's love wouldn't have…like lying, smoking, drinking alcohol etc. However, having chanced upon the gorgeous Priya's diary he tries to fake it out as her 'destined guy'.

However, as predicted his facade soon falls off and a miffed Priya leaves him saying if they're truly destined they will get back in touch. How? She asks Immy to write his name and number on a currency note. She writes her name and number in a book. If the note finds a way back to her, or the book to him, they are 'meant' to be in love. Sounds familiar? Yes, serendipity!

There are two things that go against Milenge Milenge in a very bad way.

One that it's not at all contemporary. Anything and everything about the film is outdated. Dialogues are ancient! It seems as if it was made for another era's college students who have now grown up and won't relate to it. They may go all nostalgic, maybe. And the movie has nothing that can make the present generation of youngsters to relate with. Heck, the leads don't even use cellphones!

The second thing that goes against the film is that the script and screenplay is not original. Okay, we're not against adaptations or remakes if it's done tastefully. But this film just makes you go 'why'?

The music doesn't help either.

As a consolation- there are some moments of genuine comedy. Like, when Shahid and his friends dress up as girls to go to the hostel. It may be cliched but it's a tried and tested way of eliciting laughter and it doesn't fail this time either.

Shahid Kapoor looks adorable. Young full of zest, peppy. He is all energy. Kareena Kapoor looks curvy…although it's a pity they haven't been brought out well by her several seasons old costumes. The chemistry between the two is not all sparks but dewy and delicate. Kind of sweet! Both have justified their characters within the limits of the scope given to them.

Satish Kaushik and Satish Shah are typically themselves. Aarti Chhabria at times looks like a tart. Delnaz Paul is convincing. Kirron Kher looks apt. Himani Shivpuri is good.

If you're a diehard fan of Shahid-Kareena then maybe, you'll like this film.  Or else I suggest you'd rather wait for the DVD.
