Always Kabhi Kabhi - External Reviews

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.

Thumbs down by Nupur Barua, ...Zoa Morani gets the maximum screen time, maybe because she is Karim Morani's daughter. Not only does she have the shortest skirt in school, she also gets the best camera angles as she flaunts her body, sulking and pouting.... full review

Thumbs down by Sanjukta Sharma, Live Mint is far from ‘3 Idiots’ and more ‘High School Musical’-meets-‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ kind of teeny-bopper drama with song and dance. ... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...Giselli Monteiro looks flawless, but remains expressionless for a major part of the film, and the inaccurate dubbing doesn't help either. ... full review

So-So by Bhavikk Sangghvi, Planet Bollywood ...Music by Ashish Rego, Shree D and Pritam Chakraborty has no repeat value (except the title song) which is a ‘must’ for a film with romance as it’s backdrop. Even the ‘Antenna’ song filmed on Shahrukh Khan is not tuneful. ... full review

Thumbs down by Raja Sen, Rediff ...Nobody's worth talking about except Zoa Mirani, playing the feisty one with significant charm. There's confidence and presence here, and this girl -- who nabs the only genuinely good shot in this film, a quick and wonderful visual flourish involving lipstick and suicide -- is the only positive takeaway.... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The drug raid scene is expertly handled and shows the ruthless cops arrest innocent kids, asking for a ransom to let them go. The online status updates are a recurring motif. ... full review

So-So by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...the film is a youth-oriented story but completely lacks the fun and games that are associated with this generation.... full review

Thumbs down by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...Outdated music? Check. Outdated dialogue (or none at all)? Check. Climax to represent misunderstood youth, albeit juvenile and tacky? Check. Overly long?
