Feature Film | 2010 | Romantic, Family Drama
A very amateurish attempt, which comes at least 15 years late!

The Rajshris have been known for a particular kind of filmmaking. When someone else tries making something on similar lines they are compared to Rajshris. However with changing times the production house seems to have understood the expectations of the audience change too.

A youthful Isi Life Mein is clearly their attempt to come up with something that today's youth would prefer. What the producer should have understood is that they stand double dangers - of being compared to themselves and also be compared to others who have been making such movies more prolifically. Sadly, they fall short in both parameters!

Isi Life Mein is a debut attempt by Vidhi Kasliwal who belongs to the Barjatya family. It is the story of Rajnandini (Sandeepa Singh), a girl from an orthodox family. Her mother realizes that she has a bright future and coaxes her father to send her to a college in Mumbai. The 'maximum city' is quite a culture shock for Rajnandini but she manages to make her own friend's circle and even find hidden talents in her. However just when she starts believing in her capabilities her father drops in Mumbai and takes her back to her town and decides to get her married.

Isi Life Mein has multiple issues. There is no newness in the story. It is more like a mixture of Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and number of others films. A better screenplay could have still given it a fair chance. Although the first half is filled with lots of beautiful moments the story does not move. And that leaves everything for the second half. As a result the drama that is required never builds for characters to take decision that they do. The dialogues are inconsistently written.

The film has been shot well and the colours used make the film look bright. The set design is however amateurish, with graffiti in all backgrounds just to give the youthful look. The background music is often not in sync with the situations. The choreography is good and the songs sound better in the film than they do as a standalone album.

The debut performances of the lead actor are decent. They show confidence and promise. Others are good too.

Overall, Isi Life Mein introduces a few talents into the industry and it would be interesting to see their progress in future. Their debut however would hardly make any difference. It will be just a name in their resume of films, a name that won't ring any bells. A very amateurish attempt, which comes at least 15 years late!
