Always Kabhi Kabhi - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Our parents lecture us. And we are bored of the sermons. So, what do we do? Go to the theater and have 18-year old non-actors preach to us how we shouldn't nag our children. Oh wait, and just in case you didn't get the point, THE Shah Rukh Khan, will come and patronize the same pill down your throat.

"Always Kabhi Kabhi" What is that? What in goodness' name is that? Who talks like that? To top it off have smirky thoughtful Shah Rukh Khan go, "kabhi kabhi aapne socha hai ki aap school mein always kya karte the?" (Sometimes have you wondered what you always did in school? - sounds weird in Hindi.) It just sounds wrong, even if it might be in its own way, grammatically correct.

But then again, maybe Shah Rukh Khan is talking to the grammatically-challenged generation. Oh wait! But isn't he asking the question in past tense which would mean he's talking to school pass-outs like us. gulp Sounds very confused. Anyway, if the Shah Rukh Khan bits of this promo aren't a complete turn-off for you, we belong to different parts of the audience. Oh well...

Unfortunately, the rest of the trailer, or even the other promos, don't hold much promise. The entire setup and the details in terms of individual lines sound like they are working too hard to impress. Maybe like the generation the movie seems to be portraying. On the other hand, campus romance and masti has huge potential to refresh your mind with jubilant youthful characters. Something that could take you back to your time in school. I'm hoping against hope that it doesn't end up being juvenile. Because that's how the music sounds for sure.
