Love Aaj Kal, which is in fact a standard Bollywood love story disguised as a realistic take on modern love.Love Aaj Kal is not a bad film. It’s got its heart in the right place, but its other parts seem scattered. The screenplay, for one, is far from foolproof.The film in the end is ordinary stuff, watchable but never memorable like the director’s previous efforts, the far superior “Socha Na Tha” and “Jab We Met”. I’m going with two out of five and a n average rating for Love Aaj Kal. It’s like that plump mango you bite into only to discover it’s not ripe yet. Watch it nevertheless for the sharp dialogue and some clever humor.

The subject matter is novel, never attempted before, but the material, the characters [Saif and Deepika especially] as also its execution is targeted at the youth in big cities mainly. As they say in filmi lingo, this one’s a hardcore multiplex movie.The film captivates in bits and spurts in the initial portions. Partly because the writing is so different. But the writing breaks new grounds in the second hour. It’s in this hour that the film grips you completely, when the fragmented pieces are put together and a mesmeric picture emerges.Final word? LOVE AAJ KAL makes you fall in love with love all over again. Makes you value your loved ones all the more. This film is special!

you aren’t disappointed at all. Because, this time, the effervescence and adrenalin rush of impetuous love, resonant in the romance of Geet and Aditya in Jab We Met, has been replaced by a more serious and realistic take on modern love. The film literally holds up a mirror to the commitment phobia of the young, successful professionals who keep changing their status from `committed’ to `single’ on the sundry social networking sites. Much to the chagrin of their dads and mums who fail to understand this emotional dilettantism and keep badgering them with love-of-a-lifetime cliches. The secret of director Imtiaz Ali’s film making lies basically in three primordial areas. Instead of relying heavily on a three-hour long script, he chooses to concentrate on his dialogues: crisp, concise and completely in sync with aaj ka lingo.

Imtiaz Ali, one of the most promising filmmakers in the country, is sadly down with blockbusteritis.Love Aaj Kal is watchable, but feels heavily compromised. It’s a romantic drama that would have worked wonderfully if it hadn’t tried to be funny in the first half, and doesn’t work in the second because the laughs dry up. We have poignant moments interrupted by touches of lets-tickle-the-audience humour, as if India can’t take a drama straight up. And the songs, something Imtiaz earlier managed to weave in so seamlessly into his narratives, now blankly interrupt the proceedings with much bling. Ali’s dialogue is still his biggest strength.Love Aaj Kal is a harmless, watchable film — sad, because it could have been truly special. It has its moments in the first half, while the second half is an over-melodramatic drag.

A love story that opens with a breakup – that’s quite a ‘twist’ in the treatment. Do not expect too much of novel turns in the tale though.Love Aaj Kal is a been-there-seen-that story of a couple, Jai (Saif Ali Khan) and Meera (Deepika Padukone) who realize true love for each other once they part ways and go their own paths.The recipe of love stories hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s just reworked garnishing that has added to the appeal. Likewise Love Aaj Kal doesn’t promise much newness in its plot but clicks largely for its casual-n-cheerful presentation.Kal ka wine in Aaj ka bottle!

There are three reasons why you must catch Love Aaj Kal ASAP – dialogues, performances and music. Imtiaz Ali’s tale of love, then and now is a light hearted and refreshing watch. Burnout, commitment phobia, long distance relationships – issues the minus 30-generation can easily identify with, are subtly touched upon thought the movie. Here’s a film that actually talks the talk.Love Aaj Kal is not perfect. But in one of Bollywood’s dullest years, this one comes as a refreshing ray of hope. It’s bound to bring a smile on your face. Here’s a film with both head and heart.It’s the coolest film of the year

Imtiaz Ali has spun a two-layered tale of love and has Saif Ali Khan portraying love in today’s time (Aaj) and love two decades ago (Kal). In both roles, Saif is super convincing. Love seems to be the flavour for Imtiaz and he handles the subject with a degree of confidence that has now become his trademark. Love knows no language. Besides, it cuts through people from all age. Aaj, Kal and what have you. It is neat, clean and full of romance. This one is for ”The mango people. The Aam Junta”, as Saif’s Jai says in one of his dialogues. Go for it.

In fact, the first 20 minutes of the film are excellent when the director wraps up the beginning and the end of the Saif-Deepika love story. While watching this portion of the film, you do feel that “Love Aaj Kal” is indeed treading a very original path.Just when it seemed that the film had come to an abrupt end, there is this twist in the story that makes one wonder if “Love Aaj Kal” is the same movie that started so impressively and ended in such an ordinary manner! If not for the performances and the music, the film would have dipped even further.Yes, one understands where Ali was coming from when he decided to convey that the emotion of love was just the same across different generations. In the end, however, “Love Aaj Kal” turns out to be just another love story.
