There is never a time or a place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single throbbing moment.

That moment for the very rich, Rajveer Grewal (Jackky Bhagnani), an automobile modifier who has just completed his project - DC (Dream Car), occurs on the escalators of his office building where he sees the woman of his dreams.

Then starts his chase for Madhuri Singh (Niddhi Subbaiah), the girl who would be his mother, Rashmi Grewal's (Kirron Kher) - DB (Dream Bahu).

The premise of "Ajab Gazabb Love" pivots around DC and DB.

This love story takes a spin because Madhuri, a self-righteous girl who works for an NGO, proclaims that she hates rich people.

To win her, Rajveer in all his foolishness claims he is a poor guy and Madhuri falls for him hook-line-and-sinker.

But then Indian marriages involve entire family. So here starts the drama and series of comic events. The Grewals move from their posh bungalow to a squatter's colony to pretend to be poor.

To add drama to the poor family story, mom Rashmi Grewal is forced to be a blind person. Rajveer's brother poses as a drunkard, sister-in-law turns into a maid and his father Yashwardan Grewal (Dharshan Jariwala) becomes a banana vendor.

"Ajab Gazabb Love" has its hilarious moments but on the whole, the plot is on an even keel.

Kirron as usual is over-dramatic and loud. Arshad Warsi as the south Indian friend is good and effective. Arjun Rampal, in a double role as Karan and Arjun, older brothers of Madhuri is good.

Jackky with his six-pack abs makes a sincere effort in delivering what is required of him. Of course, he is endearing at times but those moments are few and far between.

Niddhi as the leading lady is just passable.

Sajid-Wajid's music is nothing to write home about, average and dismissible. The lyrics like, 'Lip Lock' etc, are no poetry either. The songs seem to be forced upon the audience.

After "Dhoom", "Dhoom 2" and "Kidnap", "Ajab Gazabb Love" just reinforces that director Sanjay Gadhvi is a slick and trendy. The ensemble of songs is ample evidence to the fact.

The elements that don't work in Gadhvi's favour are that the songs are carelessly placed in the story, unrealistic approach of the premise of the story, treatment; and a clean-shaven Sardar. These were surely difficult to digest.

If you are having a boring weekend with nothing better to do and if "Ajab Gazabb Love" is your only option, then only go for it.
