Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Movie Review – Passable Fare

Plot of Ek Main aur Ekk Tu:

Two seemingly mature adults met, get married even before they understand the meaning of ‘I DO’ and the next morning, they realize that it was a big mistake. One thing leads to another and after a round of drinks and debauchery, Rahul (Imran Khan) and Riana (Kareena Kapoor) realize that they have married by mistake. They decide to get their marriage annulled and they have ten days to do so. Despite their misgivings and arguments, they become close friends and romance blooms between them. Rahul also has to hide the truth about marriage from his parents, the fact that he has lost his job, also adds to his problems.

Director Shakun Batra’s best thing is that he does not fall back on heavy drama, props, and loud background score to convey emotions. The treatment of the movie is commendable and there are some funny scenes that stand out in the narrative. Writers Ayesha Devitre and Shakun Batra have done good work with the screenplay and the dialogue are also common-place and relevant. The movie does look like an urbanized version of Jab We Met, coupled with Westernized way of treating rom-coms.

The conclusion of the movie also gets a thumbs-up, it ends with a neat surprise. The first half is entertaining but the story really picks up post interval when we get more insights into Kareena Kapoor’s background and family, The songs ‘Auntijee’ the beautiful title track and the song ‘Gubbare’ are choreographed well. The cinematography of Ek Main aur Ekk Tu also deserves accolades; David Mac Donald has done praiseworthy work, especially with the dazzling images of Las Vegas in the first half.

What does not work for Ek Main aur Ekk Tu:

This movie will find its takers in the multiplex audience. Single-screen audiences may not identify with some of the sensibilities shown in the film. Besides, one would have appreciated the plot to take control in the first half instead of meandering its way with sequences which may be entertaining but do not carry the story forward.

Performances in Ek Main aur Ekk Tu:

Imran and Kareena have given spirited performances in the film. Imran is coming out on his own; he delivers a likeable performance even in the face of a more experience and spontaneous actress like Kareena Kapoor. The diva of course, looks sexy and has given one of her best performances. Kareena Kapoor infuses life in the life-wire Riana, who looks more like an urbane cousin of Geet, the unforgettable protagonist of Jab We Met, which she played with a lot of spontaneity. The supporting cast also impress, some of the notable ones being Boman Irani, the ever-dependable actor; Ratna Pathak Shah, Ram Kapoor and Sonia Kapoor.

Conclusion:

Ek Main aur Ekk Tu is a good date movie. Though not one of the best, it may find its takers with the youth

Rating:  *** (Above Average)
