Chirag Paswan should try harder once again. This time around his attempt with Miley Na Miley Hum clearly doesn't work.

The only reason why this film is in the highlights is because it marks the launch of Political scion Chirag Paswan! Having said that, there's one dialogue mouthed by Kangana Ranaut in the film that clearly sums up this effort, "Khele bine haar jaoge toh jeet nahi paaoge. Aur agar khelke haroge toh shayab kabhi jeet paoge." Well maybe that's why you even have Chirag son of Politician Ram Vilas Paswan making an attempt at acting. Whether it works or not remains to be seen.
Chirag a budding tennis player is brought up between warring parents Siddharth (Kabir Bedi) and Shalini (Poonam Dhillon). Chirag divides his stay with his parents on monthly basis. While one month he stays with his father and work with him on his vineyard, the next he stays with his mother, a business magnate and helps her out with her work. Now the twist in the story comes when both the parents want to see Chirag married. Shalini wants Chirag to settle with Kamiah (Sagarika Ghatge) while Siddharth wants Chirag to marry his friend's (Dalip Tahil) daughter Manjeet (Neeru Bjwa). In order to concentrate on his tennis career and get out of the sticky situation Chirag bluffs being already in a relationship with an upcoming model Anishka (Kangna Ranaut).
How he convinces his parents about dating Anishka, how Anishka agrees to be Chirag's girlfriend blah blah follows through the rest of the plot.
Directed by old timer Tanveer Khan, Miley Na Miley Hum is one of the most poorly written stories. There are many sub-plots within the script which are forced only to reach to a certain point. The film starts with a flashback and the story only comes to the present times in the last 5 minutes of the film.
Chirag is shown to be a nobel, humble guy making you wonder if that's his profiling being done only to make him stand more confidently in the next elections! The originally green eyed actor, wears a very glaring blue coloured lens which does not really suit him and is easily detectable. Moreover, he is taut and holds only one expression in each and every situation of the film making you wonder whether he is happy, sad, worried, tensed etc.
There are some scenes which are hilarious and unbelievable. For starters, Shalini views one of the old videotapes of Siddharth playing with Chirag and guess what that videotape is from? Rakesh Roshan's Khoon Bhari Maang where Kabir appears to be extremely young!
Sagarika Ghatge and Neeru Bjwa are completely wasted and barely have anything to do in the film other than dance one-one song each. Kangana Ranaut over acts and her character isn't well defined. Here again her looks seem odd. Wonder if she is undergoing one surgical change by each film. This time around her bust looks heavier and lips much more fuller. Sadly there's work done only on her appearance and not on acting. She seems to have lost touch even on her drunken act that she so easily used to pull off in her earlier films.
Music is a deterrent and only adds to the agony of the viewers. Shweta Tiwari's item song looks hilarious rather than raunchy all courtesy Chirag's taut dancing.
Over all, Chirag Paswan should try harder once again. This time around his attempt with Miley Na Miley Hum clearly doesn't work.
