Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani REVIEWS

It's Ghazab Ranbir All the Way!

By MovieTalkies.com, 07 November 2009 4 / 5

With 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani', director Raj Kumar Santoshi has bounced back. It is not a flawless film by any chance, but this is the film, which to some extent, brings back memories of that classic 'Andaaz Apna Apna'. In fact, Santoshi reveals that same lightness of touch, that feel for nonsensical dialogues and that wonderful flair for comedy. After creating the right kind of set up, he then sets Ranbir Kapoor free and allows the actor to take over, which he does with a brilliance, quite unmatched in recent times. 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' is as much Santoshi's film as it is Ranbir's. The actor gets into the goofy character called Prem Chopra perfectly and is spectacular in the movie, specially, his charm and the manner in which he manages to turn even a simple scene to something so out of this world, is simply amazing. This is an out and out Ranbir affair and he floors one with his talent. Of course, he finally gets a role which allows him to soar uninhibitedly and he digs into it with relish. Ranbir is only able to take over the movie because of the wonderfully, nonsensical dialogues that he is given and the terrific support that he receives from his director and his co actors. The film has a quaint old world charm to it which coupled with the comic element, makes it a very touching and enjoyable movie. The story is about a simpleton Prem, (Ranbir), who lives with his parents in a small hill station and is the president of the Happy Club, which consists of other equally, unemployed guys of his age. A chance encounter with Jenny (Katrina Kaif) and Prem ends up losing his heart to her, but lacks the courage to tell her about his feelings till it's too late. He discovers that she is in love with Rahul (Upen Patel) and he now makes it the mission of his life to unite the couple. Santoshi handles the first half of the film very well indeed, but towards the latter half of the second half, the film seems to have been stretched too long and just about starts to get tiresome. The whole kidnapping angle, which forms the film's climax is a little too drawn out and one would have expected a more creative ending from Santoshi. The transformation in Rahul's character is quite unwarranted. But despite these areas, as a whole, Santoshi manages to keep the laughs going and mood breezy, thus exercising superb control on his actors and the screenplay, which is replete with witty one liners. Total justice has been done to the wonderful music that has been composed by Pritam and Santoshi has picturised each song with a lot of love and care, bringing out its essence and flavour. In fact, the entire film has been shot wonderfully. Ranbir holds this film together like a master actor. He is brilliant, especially in his encounters with his parents, played superbly by Darshan Jariwala and Smita Jaykar. The witty one liners exchanged between them are delightful. It helps that both Jaykar and Jariwala are seasoned actors and display superb comic timing. As for Ranbir, he plays the goofy simpleton, Prem, flawlessly, and most importantly, in his own fashion, with no hangover from any of the illustrious RKs in his family. Both he and Katrina Kaif look good together as a romantic pair too. Katrina tries hard to act in this movie, and succeeds to a degree, but her accent is a little grating at times. Upen Patel is deadpan and has little to show as an actor. In fact, barring him, the rest of the cast all seem to get into the mood of the film and their characters and deliver very consistent performances. Enough cannot be said for the witty dialogues and sharp one liners that the film is full of. The streak of madness displayed in some of the scenes is quite priceless. In fact, the film's opening sequence about Prem and his gang in the shopping mall is a cracker and sets the mood for things to follow. It's because of this flying start by Santoshi, that one expected the second half to be just as crazy. It is to an extent, but does get a little diluted with Upen's entry and the entire kidnapping sequence. This film proves once again, that a good screenplay and well written dialogues are definitely half the work done. Santoshi takes care of this very well indeed and what one gets is a very well made, crazy comedy.

Pritam's Music Fits the Bill for this Romcom

By MovieTalkies.com, 20 October 2009 3.5 / 5

It's been almost a year since director Raj Kumar Santoshi came up with his last offering, 'Halla Bol'. Now a good year and half down the line, he is ready to release his latest film, 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' starring young sensations Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor who come together for the first time in this movie. Santoshi's latest seems to be quite a departure from the activist and strident tone of 'Halla Bol'. In fact, in 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani', Santoshi seems to have made a youthful love story and its music has been composed by Pritam. The composer combines very well with Irshad Kamil on the seven original songs in the album. There are seven remixes as well which brings the album count to 14 tracks. The duo have combined quite successfully earlier as well with hit albums like 'Love Aaj Kal' and 'Jab We Met' and one expects another winner from them this time round too. The album begins with KK, Sunidhi Chauhan and Hard Kaur belting out the number 'Main Tera Dhadkan Teri', which occurs in a remix as well. This club number has Hard Kaur leading from the front in her trademark style with rap. KK joins her quickly in the proceedings and goes full throttle. Pritam uses his third singer Sunidhi, very effectively in this number as she gets to come in at just the right places and give the song an extra punch. The chorus in this number is specially catchy. There are two more versions of this track in the album, one a remix and one a solo track with Hard singing along. However, this one has been titled, 'Follow Me' and makes for a good music video material. The next number on the album is 'Tu Jaane Na' sung by Atif Aslam. His vocals seem tailor made for this sufi love track. The singer manages to master not just the grammar of the song but also manages to get to its essence. The track has been very soulfully sung by him. But his is not the last voice for this track which occurs four times in this album. In its second version, a reprise version, it has singers Soham, Rana Mazumdar and Ashish Pandit coming together for the number, to create an effect which is quite interesting to hear. DJ Suketu pitches in with a remix version, which despite the pace and feel of the original, is given an altogether different twist. But the final word on this number belongs to Kailash Kher, Paresh and Naresh coming together for an unplugged version. This version is about sheer mastery over the musical idiom and Kher is superb as always. Pritam reveals his genius with the next number as well, where he uses the quintessential shehnai, heard mostly at weddings, and gives it a different twist. He uses it an absolutely different context in the number 'O My God', which is sung by Mika and Sunidhi. The solemn notes of the shehnai now add zest to this youthful track which is characterised by energetic bursts by both singers. It turns out to be quite an entertaining number. Atif Aslam makes his second appearance in the album with the number 'Tera Hone Laga' along with Alisha Chinoy. This unusual duo actually creates a sort of magic with this melodious number. It is extremely catchy and very likeable. Pritam has kept it simple and sweet and the formula works beautifully in this number. However, its remix is unable to capture this quality and doesn't quite work. The next number on the album is 'Prem Ki Naiyya; which has been sung by Neeraj Sridhar, a Pritam favourite, with Suzzanne D'Mello. The number fails to work despite its very obvious rustic Indian roots. The musical score of 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani' finally ends with a lovely ballad type number, 'Aa Jao Meri Tamanna' which has been sung by Javed Ali and Jojo. Despite a certain familiar quality about it, this number has been sung with a lot of passion by both the singers and that is what lifts this number. Pritam appears to have done a superb job with this album. In fact, this has been another good year for the singer, who has had hits like 'New York', 'Love Aaj Kal', 'Billu' and 'Dil Bole Hadippa'. This is definitely another feather in his cap. He has again managed to compose music which best befits the genre, this time round it is a romantic comedy.The music is light, melodious and quite catchy. The numbers which specially stay with long after are definitely 'Tera Hone Laga Hoon' and 'Tu Jaane Na.'
