Synopsis

A NRI boy falls in love with gaon-ki-girl, their families oppose, but he labours to win them over.

Critic's Review

Welcome to Animal Farm. With ample chicks, hens, horns; many 'murgas', mulgis, mummyjis and baaratis. Add to this rustic beauty some colours of harvest, village belles, jadoo ki jhappi (read: item number by Jacqueline Fernandez) and of course, amidst it all - blooming romance in fields of gold. In pure Prabhudheva style - with spoonfuls of desi ghee!

Ram (Girish), billionaire baap (Randhir) ka beta from Australia, lands in India for a wedding, where he's stunned to see lovely ladies bedecked in salwar-kamzeez and sarees (Whaaat? Kis khet ki mooli hai yeh?!). He falls in love with the bride's best friend, the simple gaon-ki-chori, Sona (Shruti). She's forced to leave him, but Ram follows her to the village and swears to win over her bhaiya, the proud kisaan, Raghuvir (Sonu). The billion-dollar-baby turns desi-cool - He ploughs, milks the cows (even puts them on a diet), and does a 'shitload' of work (with gobar, ghaas, et al).

The film (remake of Prabhudheva's debut directorial Telugu film) isn't ripe with any newness - in story or direction. In fact, it discernibly replants stories from the 80's-90's era (remember: 'Maine Pyar Kiya', 'Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya'), with cliches, a banal plot, an field-full of supporting cast (of which Kapoor and Khanna are underused but good) and a budding lead pair.

Debutant Girish makes a splash of an entry (surfing in blue seas, 'Bond' babes take a bow), and dances with flair. His overly exuberant performance seems flaky in the first half. Later, when he turns from a cool to kisaan, he breaks loose and performs a tad better. Shruti looks the desi beauty; her performance is not striking, yet likeable. Sonu is the best of the 'crop', his years of labour as an actor shows. There are few good laughs, doses of sweetness and fresh melodies (Sachin-Jigar), but sadly even that is mowed down by heightened histrionics, routine dialogues and a trite tale.

This one's like a pretty field decked up in celebration, but with no real harvest to show.

It might be predictable but it was such a good movie. It was a remake from a blockbuster telugu movie "Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana". In the telugu version you keep on laughing continuously. This movie has what i want to say is class comedy because in recent times most of the movies are comming with dirty comedy and dirty jokes and double meaning words

What has happened to Prabhudeva-one who gave us wanted. Why is he trying to waste his potential on very obtuse concepts. And,why is Sonu Sood wasting his acting skills in very lay projects. Any answers! Watch this movie at your own peril.

A lot of over acting from both the actors and actress. Of course the girl is beautiful and the boy has a good physique, but that's not enough in a movie to get a good review.

There have been many such NRI falls for village girl romances and almost all of them have failed. This one also falls in the same league. Maybe because its too predictable a story line. The best part of the movie is Shruti Hassan. She has acted superbly and does have very good talent. Not a good movie for her but the future should have lot of roles coming her way

Have seen it already in bengali version, still watched. Well, but could have better, too dramatic, needed some real thoughts. It was like a movie, couldn't even match with our daily life for a single moments. Still, I can say, one time watchable movie, purely romantic featured film, like 20's
