Teri Meri Kahaani - External Reviews

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

It’s a shot of mush and sweetness. But, remains just that. Beyond girl meets boy and the ‘aawww’ that goes with that – thrice over, Teri Meri Kahaani has no hook to make it even a near-unique experience.

Thumbs down by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahaani is the other kind of bad movie.

Thumbs down by Blessy Chettiar, DNA ...Yawn.... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Deosthalee, Film Impressions ...while the characters look and dress like they were in 1960 and even dance to a Shankar-Jaikishenesque party number with Priyanka's tightly wound glittering sari evoking memories of Mumtaz in Brahmachari, they speak like they are people from 2012 who boarded a time machine to the '60s. Neither the dialogue nor the adas of the time are evident.... full review

Thumbs down by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...Kunal Kohli, in an attempt to create a large canvas to paint this love-story - (using centuries, barriers of cultures, castes, customs and costumes) - simply doesn't make the crossover (to the audiences, that is).... full review

Thumbs down by Mr Care, Upper Stall ...With no redeeming cinematic quality, TMK is the kind of film that, if it does make money, will do so on basis of promotion dollars and star power, with very little substance to merit true success. One can't expect an audience to like every kind of cinema, so it's ok if they don't accept a Shanghai or a Wasseypur. But one can hope they use this same discretion to also reject poorly made films. That's all one can do. ... full review
