Hamari Adhuri Kahani

Director: Mohit Suri
Actors: Rajkummar Rao, Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi

Rating: 2 / 5

Title and the first look clearly suggested that the movie will be full of emotional drama. Barring few minutes, unfortunately this was true and sadly it was just Ashiqui 2 changing clothes. It had a good inaugural strong effect which disappears too soon once the movie enters the crying phase. The movie is relatively slow and the content quickly loses its sheen. Filled with lame romance, just somehow it manages not to irritate you.

There was an initial burst of amazing screen presence by Rajkummar Rao and Vidya Balan that immediately faded away when Emraan’s character entered. Although I’m a fan of Emraan Hashmi but the movie was good whenever he wasn’t there. It was Rajkummar Rao who nailed it in his small role. His part was different from the emotional saga and he played brilliantly. I would have loved to see a story revolving around Rajkummar and Vidya with their strong roles that was certainly possible. Vidya definitely didn’t suit in this role. She was just reminding me of Ashiqui 2’s Shradhha Kapoor.

Mohit Suri is just trying to reap benefits with his same old formula. He definitely needs to buck up and start putting efforts to show something meaningful in a different way.

Music was below average and brought nothing to benefit the movie.

Overall, lame romantic story where only few Rajkummar Rao’s minutes entertained.
