An architect Rahul Kapoor (Imran Khan) and hairstylist Raina Braganza (Kareena Kapoor) are strangers and jobless. The duo happen to bump into each other on the Christmas Eve and eventually get high on drinks. But hell breaks loose for society conscious Rahul (who hails from an elite class), when he discovers himself married to Raina the next morning. On the contrary, free-spirited Raina is super-chilled about the situation, which surprises Rahul, but later he falls for this very quality of Raina. Instead of feeling awkward, they become thick friends and file a divorce in the court. Raina introduces him to her family and deeply in love with Raina; Rahul gets the second blow when Raina shows no inclination towards HIM as far as love is concerned. What happens next is an interesting watch.
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Movie Review
Though this movie is reminded of ‘What happened in Vegas’ and ‘Reccien Cazado’, but it is no remake of either. Post interval the movie is full with surprises with strong distinct moments. The scene where Imran faces his parents about his real feelings and later, seeks apology from Kareena which is complemented with equally spellbound act from actress’s end, is quite mind-boggling.
The debutant director Shakun Batra has come up with a great story-line. The climax accounts for the complete narration and the Kareena-Imran chemistry has certainly carved the story in a proper way, entertaining the audiences this Valentine very nicely.
Kareena surpasses the expectations by her performance, which is par excellence. Though, she dominates most of the times as a chirpy and lively character, which is her forte; Imran too doesn’t withhold as he beautifully switches lanes from being timid to being assertive. Boman Imrani as Imran’s father fits in the bill perfectly, but at times is boring with his patent expressions. Ditto goes for Imran’s mother, Ratna Pathak who brings the memories of Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai on big screen. Ram Kapoor in small, but pivotal role pulls it off nicely.
If you are a sucker for romance, don’t miss this one. Even if you aren’t, I’d give this one a chance, “Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu” will be worth your while.
