Feature Film | Drama
It is a good first attempt by debutant director Barnali Shukla but can't be termed as a must-watch movie.

Only a week back, Luv Ranjan tried to bring home a fact with his Pyaar Ka Punchnama that women make men crazy for no apparent reason when in love. Well, as if to prove him wrong Vipul Shah comes with Kuch Luv Jaisa this week that teaches every husband a moral lesson 'Never take your wife for granted'. Let's find if any lesson can be learnt from this moral story.


The film begins with a montage of the married life of Shravan (Sumeet Raghavan) and Madhu Saxena (Shefali Shah) which starts with bliss but gradually turns mundane and drab. Today is 29th Feb and Madhu's birthday. To her utter disappointment, apart from her parents, no one remembers this. She has an option to either sulk at a corner for being neglected by her husband, or make the most of it as this day comes once in 4 years. She chooses the latter and embarks on a journey to renew herself. She gets a makeover done and goes to a restaurant to gorge. She bumps into escapist criminal Raghav Passport (Rahul Bose) who pretends to be a detective and things take an adventurous turn. Whether this day becomes one of Madhu's most gratifying one or ends in a disaster is something that forms the rest of the story.


The first half of the film does have some pace to it and does bring forward the telltale but things get very sluggish after the interval. You want the ordeal to finish and Shravan to realize his fault as soon as possible which is obvious from the start. Music by Pritam is a major let down wit only one song sounding decent. Editing works seems to have been done only in first half as the whole of the second half appears to be lurking without any correction done on it whatsoever.


The pairing of Rahul Bose and Shefali Shah is definitely intriguing. Their chemistry may not be termed as electrifying but the subtleness of it all touches you. Shefali Shah looks beautiful as a changed woman. But Rahul Bose is a revelation as perhaps for the first time the lad will be heard mouthing dialogues with a hint of Mumbai's tapori language.


On the whole, it is a good first attempt by debutant director Barnali Shukla but can't be termed as a must-watch movie.
