Pakistani celebrity Mawra Hocane and Harshvardhan Rane have formally entered Bollywood with Sanam Teri Kasam. But do managers Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru find a way to give their perfect launch pad to these newbies?
What is it about:
Conditions and situations around them are so grave (no pun intended!) that they can be got to endure through out the movie. While Harsh plays the extreme brooding hero with a dark past as well as a peculiar aversion to clothing (his nicely chiselled torso gets more footage than his playing). There’s considerable rona dhona for Mawra to do her crybaby act is stretched beyond condition in the picture. And Harsh despite his past that is evasive has a track that is one dimensional.
What is hot:
The chemistry between Harsh and Mawra is not unreal! Additionally the first half, particularly the scenes that create the character of Mawra has some fine moments. There’s prospective in both these performers to let this shoddy introduction pass and try some great pictures that are actual. Mawra shows that in several scenes in the picture and is a lot more than a pretty face. The tunes are catchy, Kheech Meri Picture being an important highlight.
What is not:
The important guffaw with STK is the span that is excruciating. The movie may have readily done away with at least half an hour. The climax pulls its feet to eternally culminate into an ending despite knowing the ending. Additionally the managers treatment of the matter is very inferior. There’s hardly any scope for humour in the movie, and overcast clouds of melancholy linger through out the storyline. Actually writing and the background music is practically like a Ekta Kapoor TV show, characters shout and shout till we begin shifting in our seats with suffering till their glycerin ham it out and wears out. In the event the thought was to produce a Aashiqui 2 or an Tere Naam subsequently STK should have gone all out keeping the material of its own script at heart.
Things to do:
Sanam Teri Kasam had possibility in the kind of Harshavardhan Rane and two promising debutantes Mawra Hocane, however over the top direction and a regressive script killed it from becoming more than merely another tragic love story.
