Ajab Gazabb Love

Jackky Bhagnani and Uday Chopra have two things in common. Rich fathers who produce movies. And more importantly those who are willing to ignore the fact that their sons are incompetent actors and nowhere remotely close to good looking. Regretably, one of these days their luck is bound to run out because their families will start figuring out the losses they are making repeatedly. And apparently, the additional k in the name hasn’t made any difference to Jackky’s competencies and luck.

Along with Jackky in Ajab Gazabb Love, we have to tolerate several people. Arjun Rampal in a double role that is excruciatingly painful. And it has very little to do with the corny names – Karan – Arjun. It has a lot to do with the constipated attempt that they falsely call acting. There should be a penalty for lying to the people in this manner including ban on any further performances till marked improvement is noticed.

Then there is the newbie Nidhi Subbaiah who could not have picked a more horrible movie to debut in. Usually in a good movie, even if her acting was below par, it would have gone un-noticed thanks to the really good looks. Unfortunately for Nidhi, she is as horrible an actress as the movie is. The support cast led by Kirron Kher 7 Darshan Jariwala can do very little to salvage any pride for the movie.

Rajveer (Jackky) is a multi millionaire whose father (Jariwala) is a massive industrialist. They are in the business of cars. And Rajveer has worked for nearly 2 years building his DC – Dream Car. While his mother (Kirron Kher) is waiting for her DB – Dream Bahu. And that is not the corniest line in the movie. There is more.

Anyways, our hero sees a girl listening to music and walking down the escalator of his office and falls in love immediately. Only to find out in a couple of days that she hates rich people. So to make her fall for him, our hero decides to get his entire family pretend to be miserably poor. That, in sum and substance is the story.

I wonder what director Sanjay Gadhvi thinking when he put in so many cavalcades in the movie. Everyone and their uncle comes with their entourage of 6 to 7 cars that would put the Prime Minister’s rally to shame. And then there is the usual useless fat friend who speaks in horrible Hindi – and I am being nice when I say that.

All in all, a horrible waste of time. The best part of the movie was the trailer of Jab Tak Hai Jaan in the interval. 1 on 10 for Ajab Gazabb Love
