Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

The real problem is that the Always Kabhi Kabhi neither feels accurately representative of this generation and its lifestyle, nor does it have an aspirational quality to it like those campus portions of ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ did all those years ago. As a result it feels very boringI’m going with one-and-a-half out of five for director Roshan Abbas’ ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’. Watching this film is like attending a concert put up by ten-year-olds. It’s amateurish, and tedious to sit through, and the only thing you can appreciate in the end is the earnestness behind the effort.

ALWAYS KABHI KABHI is based on Roshan Abbas’ 1999 play ‘Graffiti’. Though Roshan may claim that he has developed and modified the play to suit the moviegoers’ tastes, the fact is that the subject material is thoroughly unexciting and comes across as a hollow attempt to drive home a message. Actually, the screenplay tries to pack too much stuff, but the manner in which everything is spread out on the table makes you squirm in your seat. Seriously, one wonders after a point, what were the director and his team of writers trying to say? The writing is not merely humdrum and dreary, but also amateurish and ridiculous at the same time. On the whole, ALWAYS KABHI KABHI disappoints!

First, and most importantly, the film is a youth-oriented story but completely lacks the fun and games that are associated with this generation. Secondly, the parental problems are all so very predictable.It’s all foregone and predictable apart from being inordinately long. School is agony; school is ecstasy. Always Kabhi Kabhi captures neither and treads the staid middle ground.

Nobody else in Roshan Abbas’ Always Kabhi Kabhi is EVER quiet. Yes, I used caps. Just like the film does as it screams at the eardrums , with a moronic background score that never stops overselling the moment. The first half is dull as can be, merely loud, and while the emotionally-laden second half begins to mildly resemble something sweet, it explodes into a flashy climax that ruins everything.And then the producer’s husband comes and ruins it all over again.

Ratings:1/5 Reviewer:Komal Nahata Site:Koimoi

What’s Good: Two songs; some light moments; some performances.What’s Bad: The routine subject; lack of heartwarming moments; lack of comedy; disjointed screenplay.Verdict: Always Kabhi Kabhi will not get the audience’s love.On the whole, Always Kabhi Kabhi neither has the warmth and emotions of a teenage love story nor the entertainment value and music of a romantic drama. It will not be able to make much of a mark at the box-office.

Roshan’s ALWAYS KABHI KABHI truly stands out for its engaging performances and characterization.The storyline is recycled and predictable. The dramatic incidents and the twists and turns in each of the characters’ life are tasteless and don’t leave any impact. However, the dialogues and one-liners have a youth flavour and do impress at some points. The ‘high school escapade’ theme gets a stylish makeover, but doesn’t make us yearn for our school days.

SRK’s fans who can endure anything to watch him in a video can risk buying a ticket. If you want to re-visit teen days without any decent expectations ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’ will turn out to be an ok experience. We suggest always think before kabhi kabhi pushing yourself towards theatre as it has little to offer.
