Review: Meet the gorgeous gora-gori jodi of this village-side story. Dia (Kareena), a social worker living in Bengaluru. There she meets the phoren-educated architect Sriram (Imran) - who she calls 'Sridevi'; a misfit and 'black' sheep in a traditional, lungi-clad Tam-Brahm family. He's carefree, casual about love, lazy and shows little humanitarian inkling. She's a fiery, righteous rebel, a mini 'Mother India' who fights for everything 'unfair'. They fall in love, but their ideologies are unaligned, so over some 'tooh-tooh main main', they split up and move on. He moves on to Vasudha (Shraddha), the pretty matrimonial pick, while Dia heads to a remote village in Gujarat.
Soon he realizes his dil beats for Dia, and he follows her all the way to Jhumli gaon. The only way to win her over is to embrace the gobar, gareebi, gais (cows) murghis (though he'd rather see the 'chick(en)s' in a tandoor), and whole bunch of dhoti-clad villagers (straight out of 'Lagaan', even with 'Oh Mitwa' playing in the background for impact). Yes, he even sacrifices his strictly 'chicketarian' diet for dhoklas instead (becharo chhokro!). Lastly, he helps Dia with her mammoth dream of replacing the gaon's shaky rope-bridge with a real one. Now, will 'Sridevi' be able to use his chaalbaazi to crossover to his chhori - That's the idea.
Imran, is most at ease playing Romedy roles, it shows. He's endearing and likeable as a loverboy. Kareena looks stunning in her desi avatar and pulls off the chhori-chichhori with spontaneity and spunk. Shraddha makes a 'pretty' pleasant cameo; and Anupam Kher entertains with his madcap act.
Punit's 'GTPM', is a sweet, breezy romcom with likeable characters presented in glossy, lavish, true Karan Johar (producer) style. In the second half, the 'the bridge over troubled waters' project is a bit stretched, and you wish the gaonwallahs would leave the pair to romance instead. Music (Vishal-Shekhar) is peppy and pleasing.
This isn't the most rousing romance (second-half lacks 'rom'), but has its feel-good moments. Chew it up with some 'Chingam' and a cute date.
Yes i saw the trailers and yet i went to this movie, i knew how the movie will be. It was a treat from my friend so i went anyway and my friends are big fans of Bollywood movies, Hence GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN.
I am sorry to say this but Imran you don't have what it takes to be the leading man in the movie. I remember seeing your movie JAANEY TU YA JAANEY NA that movie was plain awesome and so far i remember you solely for that movie. When i see him on the screen acting i don't see him loosened up he always seem to be in his reservation, i never saw him loosing himself in the character. He seems uncomfortable and tight just like his dancing, i really don't care for the actors who don't know dancing but they should be able to act. I don't believe a word of it when media says that imran is very closely mentored by amir, if he is mentoring him then he must be conspiring his Bollywood exit. Jaane tu ya jaane na was a romantic comedy and it clicked and imran very smartly did not want to associate himself with one genre of movie and moved on to do serious and different roles which he failed at, whether its bad luck or he is not talented enough. Eventually he came back to doing Romantic comedies and after his back to back flops he has delivered yet again a flop movie and i feel its time that imran accept and move on from his acting career. Its unfair to see him getting offers with big banners and opposite big heroines in spite of delivering back to back flops, everyday talent is exploding with new comers entry into Bollywood if only producers give them a chance rather than casting actors upon influence.
Sorry about my Ranting for Imran, now coming to the movie. Film started on a good note but lost its track in the second half, the concept was fresh but the story was about a boy and girl from different communities and their disapproving families(Nothing new here) in spite of Imran's average acting i liked the first half of the movie as it was paced. But right after the intermission it just went down and down, director and writers just realized in the middle of the movie that they can deliver a social message on a much bigger subject rather than a romance story and then they just turned the movie in to completely different direction and forced us to watch a much much dramatic second half. I was embarrassed to sit in the theater to watch such level of drama, the scenes were so melodramatic i felt pity for the actors that they had to go through that . I felt if you wanted to make such a movie why not make two different movies each dealing with individual topics rather than confusing and boring the audience and making them pray for the movie to end. I am sure when they sat down to write the story they might have though to themselves that they found the love story of this year but it wasn't it. the directors vision just did not reflect in the movie.
Kareena is as usual bubbly, n convincing.Her Desi look n mannerisms are very appealing.Imran is improving but is still way behind Kareena in the acting department.The first half is peppy, n the songs are delectable.A better script n a hero like Salman , or Ranveer would have made it a block buster.Still, a must for Bebo lovers.
Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is fun as long as it sticks to the formula. But in the second half, director Punit Malhotra, misguidedly moves into Ashutosh Gowarikar mode. Meanwhile the narrative becomes both melodramatic and even more synthetic as Punit tries to inject emotions and a sense of nobility that hasn’t been earned. The best thing about Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is Imran who maintains an easy charm, even when he’s adjusting to gobar and garibi. I’m going with two and a half stars.
here are many songs and dances that are not peppy enough. Many costume changes and dressed up backdrops that fail to mesmerize. Metatextual references fall too. The falseness of the exaggerated romantic comedy sequences here infect the aspects of the story that should be underplayed and gentle, as they were in "Swades." She's the Punjab-di-gori who loves her 'mera gaon mera desh'. He's the rich Tamilian playboy who likes his women and his cars 'fast'. In a clash of ideologies, they seem to be a bridge too far. Fabulous movie to watch, good humour, south Indian touch, absolutely fantastic...but, hold on.. these lines are valid till the interval.. The movie seems to have been stretched after that...
