Ek Main Aur Ek Tu Review

Ek Main Aur Ek Tu starring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor is a romcom, directed by Shakun Batra, who also happens to be the 9th director launched by the late Yash Johar’s Dharma Productions.

The film is about Rahul (Imran Khan) and Raina (Kareena Kapoor) who are as different as chalk and cheese. Raina is fun-loving and lives in the moment, while Rahul is exactly the opposite – dull and boring. A chance-meeting develops into friendship and marriage… not that they wanted to, but weirder things happen with excess alcohol. They decide to annul (invalidate) their marriage, but the court asks them to return after a few days.

What happens next? Watch Ek Main Aur Ek Tu to find out. But should you? Read on…

What works in Ek Main Aur Ek Tu

  • The film is entertaining throughout, credit for which goes entirely to the writer-director Shakun Batra and co-writer Ayesha Devitre. The witty one-liners and it’s near perfect delivery by the lead stars, keeps you hooked. Also, the way the generation-gap and parenting-ways is handled, is applaud worthy.
  • The first half breezes through without a moment of dullness. The pace does dip slightly in the second half as Rahul and Raina travel to India – but length, placement of songs and direction is near-perfect.
  • The film suffers from being predictable, but what comes as a pleasant surprise is the climax.
  • Performances are top-notch. Kareena is her usual bubbly, talkative self. With her expressions and dialogue delivery, she proves yet again that when it comes to acting prowess, she is light years ahead of most of her contemporaries. Her role is quite similar to Geet in Jab We Met. Imran Khan shines with a good believable performance – it’s a role that lets him underplay, while not quite testing his on-screen histrionics.
  • The cinematography is brilliant. The music is catchy, a couple of songs are very good.

The not-so-impressive bits

  • Apart from the climax, the rest of the film is predictable. In fact, the trailers have almost entirely covered the first half!
  • Ek Main Aur Ek Tu is targeted at the city audience, especially the youth in Urban cities. Due to which it holds limited mass-appeal.

To sum things up, you walk into theatres expecting a fun, breezy film with a fabulous performance from Kareena Kapoor. You walk out with all that, plus two surprises – Imran Khan does exceptionally well in a role that let’s him underplay and a very ‘hatke’ finish, just when you think the ending is likely to be predictable!

Rating: ★★★½☆ Worth a watch.

    last me devorce………..
    bas end me achcha kia jo un dono ko friend hi rehne dia..
    nahi to movie pakka flop hi jati
    end hi sahi tha…..

  • There is no doubt some songs are nice, but there should be some grip in the plot. The problem is the film does not deliver the key ingredient, the interest that hold the cinegoer till end.

    Despite presence of lead actress Kareena Kapoor who is at peak, still, Unfortunately, the movie flopped, here, except few multiplexes are pulling on with this movie, but we are afraid recovering the import cost would be an exercise in futility.

    Not up to mark, just average. **1/2
