Tum Mile Hindi Movie ReviewFeature Film | Drama, Romance
After the successful Jannat, Kunal Deshmukh returns with Tum Mile. 26/7 is etched in the memory of every Mumbaikar and every monsoon, with a hint of heavy rainfall (like this week), the fear of another such tragedy arises. Tum Mile with the July 2005 disaster as its backdrop is a love story featuring Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan.
The story is simple. On the day of the floods (July 26th 2005) Akshay and Sanjana are on the same flights back to Mumbai. It's the first time they have met in years. Flashback takes us to the past, when the two were lovers. The director takes us through the couple's journey of falling in love, dating, their intimacy, challenges and the fallout that eventually leads to separation.
The movie is predictable and the plot simple - Boy meets girl, they fall in love, break up, reunite once again. Sounds straight out of almost every other Bollywood movie, doesn't it? Yet, its Kunal Deshmukh's narration that keeps the audience hooked. The characters are well etched, very real - neither black nor white. The director also succeeds in emotionally involving you into the lives of Akshay and Sanjay and the constant shift from past to present keeps the interest level of the audience going.
Tum Mile also boasts of superlative performances by both Emraan and Soha. Emraan, by now, one of the more dependable actors in the industry showcases his acting talent. He excels in both intense and romantic sequences. Soha puts across a very natural performance and her chemistry with Emraan is effortlessly amazing.
The music by Pritam is soulful and the special effects are good.
To sum up, Tum Mile with music and the Mumbai tragedy as its USP is aided by extra ordinary performances and good direction.
