At a time when we are celebrating a thinking Piku, a rebellious Tanu and her spirited twin Datto; why do we need women characters who whimper? HAK's moments come from its lead cast who pitch in their best for the most part. The music is a soothing balm. Suri should know that even cinema Goliaths cannot rise above the written word.

Mahesh Bhatt has penned this semi-biographical convoluted saga, with well-etched characters who are intense and complex. High on emotional quotient, he leaves his imprint with the well-structured, tight and intelligently-woven script. But it is the cliched, archaic and effusive expositions that nail the narrative. Watch this one if you are moved by sad love stories. The good performances are an added bonus.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani is a film where three fine actors all play idiots. This time, working from a script written by Mahesh Bhatt, his focus appears to be not story but, simply, sadness. The characters are all pathetic folk with twisted childhoods. The film is a dreadful drag, with godawful dialogue.

When the trio of Vidya Balan, Rajkummar Rao and Emraan Hashmi competent actors all, Rao even better — comes together, you expect something. What ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ does is the exact opposite. It purports to be an unusual triangle, and perhaps on paper, it may have come off as one. But this is a shockingly empty film, with the entire cast desperately ‘acting away’, and not one sentiment that feels real.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani is mostly dependent on its lead actors and they’ve done a satisfactory job. It’s one of those films which reveals its latent potential and then fails to capitalise on it. Hamari Adhuri Kahani is watchable, but it is not likely to ignite a passionate fire in your heart.

First things first. Despite having a huge 'star presence' in the form of acting power horses like Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao, the film simply fails to register in the minds of the audience. And the main reason for the same is its weak script that is combined with heavy melodrama, which is tough to digest in today's time. The film's characters are half baked and operate on some bizarre logic which makes you laugh after a point!.On the whole, HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI is definitely very 'adhuri' on entertainment value and can be skipped.

What could be worse than watching a love story and not feel its sting. It fails to involve you and suck you in on any level. Thanks to the larger than life cinematic liberties taken by Suri, you cannot enjoy this film. Watch or Not?: No! There are better things to do on a weekend than watch a love story that is painfully slow, illogical and has no conclusions whatsoever.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani is a film about a woman who is in love with a rich man but feels dutiful towards her abusive husband. Decent storyline lost in cheesy, very cheesy, no no no, cheesiness-raised-to-the-power-infinity dialogues that I feel I have devoured the entire Cheesecake Factory at MOE. In its defense, it could have been a good film.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: David Tusing Site:GulfNews
What the film could have been, and which it briefly is, is about a woman, who, despite her over-bearing reality, breaks free from tradition, follows her heart and triumphs. Instead, she stupidly walks with her suitcase into the sand dunes. No, this is not an incomplete story. It’s just a badly told one.

    A sob-sob dated story! [1.5/5]

    Despite being screamed at, threatened and controlled by her egoist, rough and aggressive husband, an Indian wife can’t gather enough guts to throw away her ‘Mangalsutra’. As the matter of fact, she tries to shut her ears melodramatically with both the hands when is suggested for the same from an old lady happened to be her own mother-in-law. And when the unwanted husband makes an unexpected visit in last 5 years, she doesn’t mind giving him a warm welcome with all the comforts he can wish for. And, if overwhelmed by someone’s goodwill for her miserable life, she can easily entitle him ‘God’. And, she cries all the time. Well, this is not an overview on the condition of women in prehistoric India. This is Mohit Suri’s regressively depressing and awfully hopeless film HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI written by one of the most ‘ahead of his times’ filmmakers in India, Mr Mahesh Bhatt.

    Vasudha [Vidya Balan] is a single mother working as a florist in an established hotel and waiting for her gone husband Hari [Rajkumar Rao] - a prime suspect in a terrorist-act. Impressed by her dedication at work, her new boss Aarav [Emran Hashmi] offers her a better job opportunity but soon, falls in love with the lady. He loves to help the needy. And he has a very convincing justification too, for his compassion; as if no man on this earth can show empathy towards any woman around without having a proper, emotional and dramatic back-story. Aarav’s mother too has been a single-parent for the most of her life.

    Hari returns. Incidentally, he is innocent and is framed. The Indian wife has turned now in a ‘Savitri’ mode to save her husband’s life. Meanwhile, the crying has been accelerated in fourth gear. The lover has to sacrifice all to play the kind-hearted matchmaker between two poor souls. Poor not because of their misfortune but the bad regressive writing! I bet, pick any old Hindi film of 60’s titled on its main female lead and it will have more liberal, sympathetic and progressive plot than this. If the plot doesn’t engage you at all, dialogues also don’t do any better. Everyone seems to be in the race to mouth lines soaked in grave philosophy about life, marriage, man-woman relationship and what not. It’s exactly like listening to Bhatt Saab’s dreadful life-lessons at any social-forum. Melodrama is another abysmal addition that creates an unbearable situation equivalent to any Balaji TV soaps. The background score actually travels the same crescendo once when Hari gets violent over Vasudha’s love confession.

    HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI has three bankable actors in its kitty. Emran Hashmi being the crowd-puller tries his luck as a serious performer here. He took it in a literal sense, I fear. Still, he is not unbearable at all but Vidya is. She constantly posses as either the most unfortunate girl on earth or the most undeserving for all the good things life has to offer her. In both conditions, one thing remains same and unvarying; the crying. Rajkumar Rao is good. His portrayal of a sadistic, male-chauvinist and solipsist husband could have more shades but the length hardly allows him to open the wings. Narendra Jha (of HAIDER fame) reminds me of Irrfan Khan getting wasted in his earlier acting-sting in Bhatt camp. Actor of such caliber deserves more and better.

    Overall, Mohit Suri’s HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI is meant to have intent to get you sunk in deep, dead world of an uncompleted-unfinished love saga but turns out to be a sob-sob dated story where nothing makes a connect, neither the pain nor the love. I know a couple of single-mothers who don’t need to put fake cards on her son’s birthday gifts in the name of separated fathers; they are the fathers. Appreciate them if you get a chance! [1.5/5]

  7. Hamari Adhuri Kahani comes across as a confused movie that fails to tug at your heartstrings with its cliched storytelling, heavy melodrama and hackneyed dialogues. It's one of those rare love stories that fail to invoke any passion and can be skipped without any regrets. For my detailed review, please visit.........http://rohitmoviereview.blogspot.in/
