What’s sizzling

Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele begins on a heartwarmingly distinctive not, signalling a false daybreak of one thing amazing in retailer. However as talked about earlier than, there are moments which are really amazing, even beside the starting, like a cellphone name between Zareen Khan and her dad and mom, the realization between her and Anshuman Jha that what they really feel for one another is one thing that even transcends love, or an exquisite scene the place the latter is compelled to out one other man (cannot reveal his identification to maintain this evaluate spoiler-free) from the closet. It makes you wonder if Director Harish Vyas and his co-writer Susan Fernandes have been on a unique food plan on totally different days, which in flip affected the artistic course of.

What’s not

The most important downside of Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele are the compelled scenes of bonding between the lead pair, the stilted dialogues they’re given to utter in a obscure pursuit to make them look hip, and the full lack of chemistry Zareen and Anshuman share, exacerbating the above two points. Making issues worse are the common appearing skills of each the primary protagonists, limiting them to rise above the script each time it is badly wanted, and some extremely questionable narrative selections – no means is it cool or enjoyable to cheat a easy foodstall vendor out of his cash and that climax or Anshuman’s motivation to do what he did makes neither head nor tail. Technically, too, the movie wanted much more finesse, with Suresh Pai spinning new which means to the phrase, ‘lackadaisacal’, Faroukh Mistry and Rakesh Rawat’s camerawork missing creativeness regardless of such lovely places and the manufacturing design displaying a cardboard-esque really feel at finest.

BL Verdict

What hurts worse for true movie-buffs than a movie that does not reside as much as its potential, is one which sporadically sparkles just for its sparks to quickly fade away, particularly one reminiscent of Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, which has such noble intentions just for its pertinent message to get misplaced someplace in translation. I am going with 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Score :
2.5 out of 5
