Gori Tere Pyaar Mein Movie Review

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict (CNN-IBNlive)

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, but the characters in director Punit Malhotra’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein are so flat-out uninteresting, you have to wonder if they’re from another galaxy altogether. We’d have cared more about this mismatched couple had the makers invested in a sharper script. I am going with a generous two out of five for Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. It’s as enjoyable as drinking a cup of tea that’s been left out in the cold.

The first hour of GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN! may give an impression that Punit Malhotra is back on familiar grounds urban setting, wittiness and styling.  Punit does an about-turn in the second half. The writing has its highs and lows in this hour; it’s absorbing at times, but not making much of an impact intermittently. However, there’s no denying that the noteworthy moments outweigh the blemishes. You exit the auditorium with a feel-good sentiment and a smile on your face. On the whole, GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN! is a charming and refreshing coming of age film plus rom-com rolled into those 2.25 hours. The film maintains the right balance between amusement, hilarity and engaging moments. Recommended!

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is fun as long as it sticks to the formula. But in the second half, director Punit Malhotra, misguidedly moves into Ashutosh Gowarikar mode. Meanwhile the narrative becomes both melodramatic and even more synthetic as Punit tries to inject emotions and a sense of nobility that hasn’t been earned. The best thing about Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is Imran who maintains an easy charm, even when he’s adjusting to gobar and garibi. I’m going with two and a half stars.

On the whole, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! has an interesting first half but the post-interval portion, to a large extent, mars the impact because it does not go well with the first part. It has hardly anything for the single-screen cinema audience because the humour is more class-appealing. At the box-office, it will not be able to do much. If it still manages to sail safe, it will be because of recoveries from sale of satellite and audio rights. Its performance Overseas will be quite alright.

Punit’s ‘GTPM’, is a sweet, breezy romcom with likeable characters presented in glossy, lavish, true Karan Johar (producer) style. In the second half, the ‘the bridge over troubled waters’ project is a bit stretched, and you wish the gaonwallahs would leave the pair to romance instead. Music (Vishal-Shekhar) is peppy and pleasing.This isn’t the most rousing romance (second-half lacks ‘rom’), but has its feel-good moments. Chew it up with some ‘Chingam’ and a cute date.

It works as an idea – the idea of winning the girl back by changing yourself and empowering villagers – but it’s not new. Why, Lagaan is invoked on multiple occasions in the soundtrack and dialogue. But the execution and an absolute disconnect from reality work against the idea. Escapist songs, caricature secondary casting, and convenient screenplay solutions don’t help either.

Punit Malhotra did alright with his easygoing, easily forgotten ‘I Hate Luv Storys’. Imran is quite the same here, not holding anything sacred or dear in that very with-it cool way and then letting loose on what he really thinks about fellow rich kids like him but with bleeding hearts. However Malhotra aims to be different without a difference here and his core audience suitably placated, he rambles onto that village and its – you guessed it – very ‘Lagaan’ ending. Bleeding hearts can be messy, especially when all you have been aiming for so far are handkerchiefs to dab some eyes.

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is essentially two different films separated by an intermission, with a few, weak common threads between the two. Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’s saving grace is that it is a love story and the second half will manage to melt your heart, if only slightly. It’s the classic opposites attract story and hey, if you’re into that kind of thing, this might be your kind of film.

Generally speaking, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is a clean, light hearted and fun film but don’t go to watch it keeping your expectations too high. If you are sucker for Rom-Coms, especially the Karan Johar kinds, and if you have not watched a film in a long while, then chances are you might enjoy it.

All in all, the story is weak. Direction is poor too. Had Puneet stuck to a different kind of film perhaps, one that catered more to generation Z’s rich tastes, then that film would’ve definitely fared better. Vishal-Shekhar have composed the music in the film, and when heard otherwise, the songs seem nice. Watch the movie if you have to, if you like to watch big stars on the big screen. For the rest, skipping this movie would be a wise decision.

Firstly, if you are expecting a remarkable rom-com from Gori Tere Pyar Mein, then brace yourself for a big disappointment as the film is neither funny, nor romantic. In fact, it’s a break-up, patch-up saga that becomes extremely boring after a point of time. GTPM appears to be a half-hearted attempt. The movie ends so abruptly that may make you feel that even Punit Malhotra was in a hurry to finish the film. Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor fans are requested to go and watch the film at your won risk.

: It comes as a pleasant surprise when director Punit Malhotra has upped his standard by delivering a cutesy and enjoyable romantic comedy. Aided with the wicked chemistry of Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! conjures up a charmingly enviable romantic comedy which is delightful and breezy without an ounce of melodrama. The subtle cool candour isn’t novel but this run-in-the-mill story is exceptionally endearing.

It’s painful. It’s drab. It’s unromantic. And, it’s anything but funny (even unintentionally).Punit desperately tries to nail the Karan Johar style of rom-coms by packing in the staple ingredients but he’s unable to tie it together. There are numerous songs and dances but none that are peppy enough. Many costume changes and dressed up backdrops, but none that leave us mesmerized. There are even attempts at being cheeky with Bollywood’s infamous romances by referencing lines/songs/moments, but none of the efforts are impressive enough.This one’s a no-brainer, really. Do not to waste your money on this movie.

  1. GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN!: So regular & cliché that you want it to end in the interval only! Forget it! [2/5]

    an open letter from the director!

    Ok, I have been on trip for enough now. My first outing as a filmmaker happened 3 years back & was quite a successful effort (…and forgetful too) to place me in the club of ‘filmmakers of young generation’. So, it’s time to hit back since everyone around me is expecting it…but with what? Or in this case, with whom? Well, with my mentor who has always been in the business and not a hard nut to crack if it is anything associated with candyfloss urban romantic comedies! Who else but the Karan Johar and his Dharma Productions!

    So, it’s final! It would be another boy-meets-girl romantic film with some good peppy song & dance numbers [nicely planned 3 before interval & 3 after interval], charmingly cute hero, the most desirable zero-sized heroine and all glossy decked up stylish look & feel. Done. After all, it is the safest bet in Bollywood. But wait; there should be something new, something additional, some kind of twist that can set me up as a sensitive filmmaker who dares to push his boundaries. Yes, we will literally push our boundaries from posh apartments in Metros to some remote village with a name vaguely resembled with Bollywood’s pet ‘Jhumri Telaiya’. And guess what? LAGAAN has always been my all-time favourite film. I always have this dream about shooting my film in a village, at least remade in Mumbai Filmcity with all necessities [Luxury is so negative] intact.

    Now the story! Do we really need one? Only if you are asking, the boy is a spoilt brat who doesn’t want to spend his nights at home and sings ‘izzat se, kiss my a**’ at the discothèque. The girl here is fun loving, dynamic & very much focused in life. She can be seen dining in the best of the restaurants in town & shaking her bum on ‘Tooh’ in a high-profile ‘shaadi’ but still she is very much an environmentalist reminding one of Shabana Azmi. They meet. Love happens. Principles clash. They break-up. Enters a new girl! She makes him realise that all he really wants from life is nothing but the girl. Interval. Now to win her back, boy has to travel all the way to our ‘Jhumri Telaiya’ and work for the welfare of its villagers. Interesting no?

    & now to make it a sure-shot success, all we need is good casting. What about Imran Khan? He looks one spoilt brat, more than that he looks great on screen. He fits the bill. Really? But our boy belongs to a Tamilian family. What about dialect? Who cares, especially when even his simple Hindi sounds as some tough tongue-twister! We will also play some cheesy one-liners around his fairness as ‘hospital mein badli ho gaya tha’. Funny, isn’t it? The girl can only be played by the glam doll Kareena Kapoor Khan. She is meant to be a sensible actor who can look exactly as pretty-as made-up as she could be, even if she is playing a deglam role [remember her real life journalist in SATYAGRAHA].

    So, this is yours truly Punit Malhotra and since my second film GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN! is out now; I am here to sell my film to you. Well, it is anything but a regular love-story as you can decide yourself by going through paragraphs written above. The film in fact is so satisfying [or annoying with clichés], you would like it to end in the interval only. Songs will give you plenty of time in between to take loo-breaks. Our village is very different from what you have seen in real life. People here are either workshy or professional dancers responsible for entertainment & only entertainment.

    Overall, it is a film that will not harm you if you won’t mess with it. It is a film that believes in ‘forgive & forget’. You should forgive all the clichés and forget it immediately after leaving the theatre. It is a film that is best to enjoy if you have nothing else to do…and I mean NOTHING else to do. [2/5]

  2. ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’, yet another rom-com hits the theatre this Friday. After the success of ‘I Hate Love Stories’, director Puneet Malhotra tries to present you a similar dish in a slight different fashion. Let’s see what he has for us this time.

    Gori Tere Pyaar Mein tells you the story of Sriram (Imran Khan) who belongs to a typical tamilian family. He is attracted to Dia (Kareena Kapoor Khan) who’s a social worker. The two depart because of some ideological differences and it is at Sriram’s marriage that he realizes his love for Dia. The hero elopes from his own wedding to get the love of his life. He finds Dia in a Gujrati village where he does his best to win over the heart of his girl. Seems predictable, no?

    Yes, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is very predictable. The story is so weak that you got to blame the lazy writers for it. It seemed that they were paid half their wages. Puneet Malhotra just forgets that you also need a good story to back up your star cast. I mean why would you ‘as an audience’ want to watch such a movie which even fails to justify its genre. The first half is so boring that you literally feel like running out of the theatre. The second half though compensates a bit.

    Imran Khan is poor. He hardly shows any signs of acting in whole of the film. Expressionless! Kareena Kapoor is atleast bearable. Anupam Kher is wasted. Shraddha Kapoor, with a small role, is just okay. The songs though, are satisfying.

    Gori Tere Pyaar Mein easily goes into my list of worst movies this year. Please, Please and Please avoid it! And that is not a request it is a warning.

    Rating- 1/5

  3. just a stupid movie n a bleedy crab movie of 2013.dont waste ur time watching this GTPM.Johar's most boring n time wasting movie ever in his career

  4. yes u r right only
    Rating- 1.5/5

  5. I think GTPM a wonderful narration of story it touched my heart. A fantastic love story that had hurdles complications mis-conceptions beautifully portrayed and how a girl can become a life changer in boys life.Film was excellent in the first part and even keeps you holding to your seat in the 2nd half.

  6. drunk?

  7. Oops …Imran Khan has proved that he is the most pathetic guy around. Seems to be competing with others including Deepak Parashar of eighties. those who can tolerate him for more than 3 minutes – hats off to them. Earlier I had warned Bebo to stay from this guy but looks like she did not get my message.

  8. It is a nice movie, loved it. People who are criticising the movie haven't even seen it.
