Ek Main Aur Ek Tu - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is a mildly likeable, sweet valentine gift in an "it’s the thought that counts" way.

There's a chance you'll like it better if you haven't seen the trailers, because the best gags are covered by them and thus take away from the movie-watching experience.

Plot Summary

Boy marries girl after 5 hours of boy meet girl. Annulment ensues. Meanwhile, they become friends, and...

What Worked

  • The background music of the opening scene.
  • Rahul's father's (Boman Irani) lines, that implied pressure. Unfortunately, I know such parents in real life.
  • Kareena Kapoor's entry - just because it was non-dramatic.
  • The casual manner in which a taboo subject as a visit to the psychologist was introduced.
  • Kareena Kapoor's giggly laughter when she finds out what happens between Imraan and Anusha.
  • Imraan Khan's pansy hand movements when he gestures that he is shy just pre-interval. Rather cute, moreso because it goes with the character.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • For a kid who read, "Freud for beginners" Rahul seemed very uninitiated. Good joke, but misplaced.
  • The kapaal-bhaarti sequence.
  • Rahul (Imraan Khan) rehearsing the explanation of annulment.
  • The Japanese interview
  • The day at spa - such a nice idea, but such dull dialogues and events.
  • The attempt at sex and humor in the loo scene.
  • Rahul from 2012 dancing to a song by Rahul from 1998. So not happening!
  • Rahul's big realization that is very abrupt.
  • The suitcase closing scene. The innuendo was so lame given the context of the film.
  • The light on/off scene - how tiring!
