Teri Meri Kahaani Review

When the first Teri Meri Kahaani trailer released, we were impressed – the music was good and the Shahid Kapoor – Priyanka Chopra chemistry was better. Directed by Kunal Kohli (Fanaa, Hum Tum), the film is a timeless love story that spans over an entire century.

Teri Meri Kahaani is divided into three completely different era’s and each love story has a different feel to it.

Mumbai (1960) – The film kicks off in the post-independence era of the 60’s and honestly, this was our favorite of the three. Rukhsar is a successful actress, while Govind is a struggling musician. It’s a love triangle with Prachi Desai (plays Maahi), who is in love with Govind.

London (2012) – Right then the film cuts to the current generation of Facebook, Twitter and technology. Krish and Radha bump into each other on the streets of London and instantly connect. There is a twist in the tale when Radha isn’t too pleased about Krish’s past – the fact that he broke up with his girlfriend just minutes before he bumped into her.

Lahore (1910) – And finally, just before the interval we move to the early 1910s. Javed is a charismatic character and the audience will love him. One day, while being chased by the British, he bumps into Aaradhana. The two fall in love.

We had two major issues with Teri Meri Kahaani. One, for such a short film (about 2 hours runtime), there are way too many songs. Two, the way it ended. The climax just didn’t work. Revealing why, would be a storyline spoiler.

Otherwise, Teri Meri Kahaani is a well-narrated breezy love story, with some beautiful moments. Shahid Kapoor delivers one of the best performances of his career. He plays each of his 3 characters well; a special mention for the Shayari moments between Javed and Aaradhana. Priyanka Chopra portrays all her characters with ease and shares lovely chemistry with Shahid. Prachi Desai does well in a cameo.

Coming to Sajid-Wajid’s music, of the 4 to 5 songs, Mukhtasar and Allah Jaane were two of my personal favorites. The cinematography was good. The sets were perfectly recreated for each era, with attention given to every small detail. Stay back after the movie to watch more of this during the closing credits.

Overall, apart from the climax which was a major let down, Teri Meri Kahaani has good songs and moments that make romantic films touch your heart. If you like Shahid Kapoor, go watch Teri Meri Kahaani now!

Rating: ★★½☆☆

  • Shahid doesnt understand that he can’t act like SRK in a romantic film. SRK is the King of Romance. OnlY He can make a Legendary Epic Romantic Film. Wait for Diwali.

  • Incdicine team: what do u mean when u say that the major climax was a let down!!!!!!! the best in this movie was the climax, wonder what you meant exactly!!!

    hahaha Indicine.. so u think that 2 hours is too short!!! u criticized some movies in the past being too long and they were only 2hrs 30 mints length.. and now u r saying that 2 hours is short.. I thanked God that the movie was (only) 2 hours and had many good songs, we enjoyed every minutes of the film and didn’t get bored at all or fell asleep.. that’s a plus point in fact!

    Why u ppl try to bring negative things out of a movie which was just perfect and didn’t lack anything?! r u getting paid for bad reviews or what?

    And that bad song with bad music (mukhtasar) was considered for some ppl as the best song, including Anoupama Chopra!! I was happy that this mukhtasar song wasn’t in the movie!

    The way it ended was perfect.. this director Konal Koli did this film for audience like us to enjoy, but not for audience who loved those silly crap action films and I don’t hv to mention the names coz u all know them!!

    U know what… I think that all the reviewers never publish a review only after reading what other reviewers would write or say about a movie, then they follow the same steps.

    Never believe in reviews, never believe in box office collections, go and watch any movie which you like, but not what others would like!

  • We saw Teri meri Kahani, at a theater we didn’t like it. First impression it is SLOW, secondly its also dull in its presentation, thirdly the plot is poorly executed. Prianka acting is flat, the hero is mediocre. Had high hopes but we came out with a headache and disappointed. Folks avoid this please. *1/2

  • Yes, I agree. When the trailers were out, I was oh-so impressed. And I booked my movie straightaway at Wave, Rajouri. But to my dismay, was totally disappointed. What the hell was Kunal Kohli thinking! Nobody can think that it was from the director of Hum Tum. I just liked the ‘shayari’ of Shahid Kapoor.

  • Its not a movie to be flop!! Its made for entertainment and btw.. the actings were great , the chemistry between the actors were great , the song was good , the direction was good.. so what else does a movie need… the storyline was not that strong .. but do we really need a strong story for a movie to be hit.. if story mattered then there are bunch of movies without great story was a smash hit..!!
