Love Story 2050 Movie Review

Harman Baweja finally makes his much-awaited debut in a lavish 50 – 55 crore movie titled Love Story 2050! Directed by Harry Baweja, his father, of Qayamat fame (the Ajay Devgan movie that released in 2003). Since Qayamat, Harry has been busy working on Love Story 2050, his son’s mega debut. Priyanka Chopra is Harman’s co-star in the movie. Expectations are high, mostly due to the high-on-special-effects trailers and good promotion. Does it click?

Love Story 2050 starts off as a simple love story that revolves around two characters Karan (Harman Baweja) and Sana (Priyanka Chopra). Karan is a happy-go-lucky spirited boy who goes off the rules and Sana is a shy and petite young girl who goes by the rules. What happens when opposites meet? They are attracted, love blossoms between the two. All comes to a stand still when Sana dies in a accident!

In search of his love, Karan goes into the future, right into the year 2050 with the help of his scientist uncle Dr Ya (Boman Irani) who has spent more than 15 years of his life inventing the time machine. 2050 is spectacular, flying cars, sky-high multi storey buildings, robots et al. Karan finds Zeisha (Priyanka Chopra), now a superstar, a pop singer.

Will Karan and Sana get back again? Will the future bring them together?

Love Story 2050 Review

Harry Baweja has undoubtedly put in a lot of effort and hard work into Love Story 2050, whether its the costumes, settings, special effects and to a certain extent even robots. But unfortunately, the script is way below average. The story is nonsensical, the love story lacks soul, you dont feel for any single character in the movie. Harry Baweja as a story teller fails big time.

The first half is never ending, but towards the end it gets slightly interesting, you hope for a better second half. Imagining life 42 years from now is exciting, but what unfolds on the screen in the second half is probably equilvalent to a third degree torture. It painfully drags, the special effects although great, outshines the love story, you no more care for any of the characters. The robots and the special effects too starts to get monotonous towards the end. 30 mins into the second half, you desperately await the end for the credits to roll.. Yes, its that bad!

The runtime is 3 hours plus, most of the portions can be chopped off easily. For example the character of the masked villian, who appears in the latter parts of the second half, was absolutely unnecessary. He also seems to be a last minute inspiration of Naseeruddin Shah’s character in Krrish.

Seriously, its very hard to sit through this movie. The packed house for the preview show, was almost half empty, well before the credits rolled!

Dialogues are irritating.. Harman’s favorite dialogue in the movie is ‘I dont need luck, because i have love’ He repeats it so many times that, you feel an urgent need to pull every hair out of your head! Music is average, except for the ‘Milo Na Milo’ track, nothing is even worth a mention.

Performances are no better! Harman Baweja has been compared to Hrithik Roshan, no less! Well, he is good looking, a excellent dancer, has got a good screen presence.. But in the acting department, he has a long long way to go. His dialogue delivery outright sucks! Priyanka Chopra disappoints in a meaty role, with great scope for histrionics. Boman Irani is funny at times. Archana Puran Singh is good.

In short, Love Story 2050 is yet another major disappointment of 2008. A utter waste of Rs 50 crores plus spent on this never ending tale. The opening at the box-office is expected to be good, but the negative word-of-mouth would affect Harman’s debut. The collections should start dropping heavily from Monday. This futuristic tale has absolutely no future!

Avoid!

  • Hash:Sorry.. I don’t agree with u about LS2050 that there r flaws which overshadow the movie, the flaws in Jaane Tue are much more, I don’t know if u already read those points which I already listed under the review of Jaane tue, so I’ll repeat them 4 u ( and here we r discussing the 2 movies and I don’t hv any intention to upgrade one and downgrade another.. I’m not from any marketing to do so, just saying my opinion honestly, I liked one and enjoyed it even if I noticed some flaws which didn’t affect the direction of the movie and found it interesting, but the other one, got bored, didn’t like it and there were many which spoilt my mood and just wanted to leave the theatre in the interval.

    JAANE TUE YA JAANE NA, The negative & the possitive points:
    1) Does this make any sence to u that a group fo young girls/boys gather at the airport and tell a love story of someones’ there.. at the airport?!! And in details!! How did they know all those details?? And this idea was taken from an Indian movie which I saw a few years ago.. can’t remember the name, maybe “Kuch Na Kaho” I’m not sure.
    2) Naseeruddin Shah talking, moving, smiling in his frame!! The wife wasn’t imaging but she used to see him alive in his portrait!! sucks!
    3) Imran’s acting isn’t that good, Genelia isn’t bad but saying all the time: rats.. and he says : miyaou.. rats.. miuao.. disgusting,
    4) I don’t think that a very close friends in the real life won’t be able to express their feelings for each other and they have to show something else!! they’re so close but their (ego) wont’ let them express their feelings for each other!
    5) Arbaaz/Suhail.. what’s the point of their appearance in the movie?! I didn’t like it, I was irritated with the horse riding scenes.
    6) The last scene, Imran is following his girl and want to stop her leaving, the airport scene.. tell me.. in how many bollywood movies we saw this scene?? 20 or 30 times?! Not only this.. all the groups telling the story were aware that he’s coming to stop his girl from travelling!
    (what a meaningless movie.. this movie can’t be compared with Dil Chahat Hai which was extremely a quality romantic comedy movie but not a cheap one!)
    ( THE ONLY GOOD THING IN THE MOVIE WHICH I LIKED WERE “AMIT” I LIKED HIM MORE THAN IMRAN, SOUNDS VERY TALENTED, I USED TO FALL ASLEEP DURING THE MOVIE BUT WHEN AMEET USED TO SHOW UP, JUST LIKE HE USED TO TWING ME TO BE AWAKE! HE GOT A CHEMISTRY AND A STRONG PRESENCE ON THE SCREEN, BUT IMRAN – IS A BORING, MAYBE AFTER HE WORKS VERY HARD – WOULD BE A GOOD ACTOR, AND I LIKED THE SONG: KABHI KABHI.. THAT WAS THE BEST.

    LOVE STORY 2050 : The negative & the plus points:

    1) Harman is a good actor and he got a hero look ( but Imran’s doesn’t). Harman needs only to improve his accent, the way he delivers dialagoue as well as his acting in sad scenes ( poor guy.. everyone is attacking him ’cause he looks like Heritik!
    2) Yes.. the boxing scene while the 2 of them r playing a game is irritating (I didn’t like it either) but this scene won’t ruin the whole movie, it’s just a one minute scene in the movie which is almost 3 hours! Did we ever watch any movie and we liked it all, 100% from a-z? I don’t think so, even Krrish which was a super hit had some flaws which didn’t affect the movie, the movie was very interesting.
    3) Baman Iran’s weg.. didn’t look real
    4) The kids, when they hide inside the time machine.. how could they do it?! Where did they hide and how?
    5) The future portraying a life should be after a minimum of 100 years the least, and not 42 years only, Mumbai and life can’t be changed this way in this period of time.
    6) The end: the director who spent 50 crors or more on this movie could end it at the icecream shop, repeat the same scene, Priyanka buy icecream and Harman saves her from the accident, he could’ve done it this way i/o the family gathering and the end ( When he prints the movie on a dvd, he can do an alternative ending in the special feature, Hollywood directors do sometimes 4 alternative endings and not only one)

    The plus points:

    – A big production and a very good direction, a very nice scenery in Australia near the beach.
    – The special effects, the robot ( I loved quttey)
    – The songs, Harman’s dancing ( he dances like Heritik only in the 1st song of the movie, but in the others, he acts differently)
    – Harman as a new comer, Priyanka wasn’t bad but as usual
    – Priyanka’s look was great with her costumes portraying the futurre outfits.
    – The technology in the 2nd half, how u can buy your stuff, how u can communicate with others, the way life developed which takes u far from this world and enter a future, was interesting.

    The movie is overall very good, 3 hours passed and never got bored. I give it 4 star, and I’d love to watch it again

    So Hash.. don’t feel bad, people evaluate movies differently.

  • everything is clear with the results,

    The week one collections are out and the audience verdict is clear. Love Story 2050 has been rejected by moviegoers in India as well as overseas. The movie directed and produced by Harry Baweja fell heavily on Monday and the poor collections continued throughout the weekdays. Day 1 of Week 2 (Friday) was no better either.

    Shows at multiplexes have been reduced this week and the Harman Baweja – Priyanka Chopra starrer has been taken off at many single screens across the country. The distributors will loose heavily in almost every circuit.

    The first week all India collections are about 11.45 crores, which is extremely poor considering the fact that LS 2050 had a wide release (700+ prints) in India. The movie is a huge looser, unless something extraordinary happens, which is highly unlikely.

    The business overseas continues to be poor.

    lets not fight now.

  • Dear all; I don’t think that any director can take u to a higher level and u all will remain in your seats for another 100 of years, never win oscar wards or any international one ’cause your taste will never change to better: When Shahrukh did his movie “Dil Se” and he had a great hope for it but Indian people didn’t like it much, he said during an interview which I read in one of your magazines the following: Dil Se is good for Indian audiences to watch after 10 years from now ( hoped that they’ll develop in 10 years). I think 7 or 8 years passed and Indians are still the same, don’t want to see any better quality movies, surprisingly, they still love Rajanikanth movies!! Govinda movies!!
    And in latest masala magazine, they asked Kunal Koli, the director of Hum Tum & Fana: Why an Indian movie never won an oscar award. He said: ’cause we do movies only for Indians to watch” So that’s the fact, directors are ware that if they do some serious ones, they won’t win at the box office and Sarkar Raj is an example.

  • are…fathiya ki ma ki chut sali……………rand kab se dekh raha hun harman baweja ki lund le ke byethi hai , kitna baar pelwayegi, love story flop hai bhai,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,its a disaster in the box ofice, dimag ka aur ma behen mat kar ,,,,,,,,,,,,sala koi kaam nahin hai kya itna bara comments likh likh sabka dimag khate rahiti hai,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,pls………………….band karo apna bakwas

  • No one sucks except u with your bad language and dirty tongue.. this movie is not for shitty people like u r ( u people go and watch Govinda & Rajanikanth movies!!) u all who wrote bad comments want to upgrade a silly movie for the sake of (Imran) Imran who was given a very easy roll to play, a simple roll in a shallow movie, a roll which anyone could play ( and he considered acting is very difficult!!!) Why?!! What did he achieve in this movie?!! I can’t imagine that Imran Khan would be able to do what Harman did in LS2050 for even 15 minutes. Harman’s roll was difficult and he tried his best, if he wasn’t good then Ashoutosh Ghawariker wouldn’t sign him for his next film!

    And he did a work which is similar to Hritik’s, and as a debutant, he’s excellent, u people r jealous ’cause someone good existed and u just want to ruin him! Or, maybe God didn’t give u any sences, or eyes, or brain to see the plus and the negative point correctly in any movie!

    I saw LS2050 before 2 days, and went again with a friend of mine who’s Indian to watch it for the second time today, when I asked her if she has seen the movie already, she replied.. no as she heard that the movie isn’t good enough to watch. I told her.. ok.. would u like to come with me and see it with your own eyes and seneces then judge the movie yourself and far away from reviews, critics, box office and then tell me if u found it good or bad, she agreed.
    When she finished watching only 20 minute of the movie she was surprised and said:” the movie sounds very good and interesting one, Harman is very good looking, exactly like Hrithik, talented and then she said: Why then people say bad things about the movie ( after she finished watching it she said: I enjoyed every bit of it and every scene and I’m really surprised of what I heard everywhere) I said: That’s your problem that u believe whatever u hear or read, then she replied: I’ll definetly take my husband with me to let him enjoy this movie.

  • are teri ma ka phir itna bara lecture love story box office flop hai bhai, accept kar bolo to report bhi bhejwa dun, aur kaan mat chod

  • ha.. sahi.. sahi baat hai..yeh film flop houi.. que hum defened karega.. laken woh film (jaan tu) super hit hogaya.. qu nahee?!! agar log jaiseh tum pasand karega yeh bakwaz (jaane tu) to zaroori super hit ho jayega!! Bullshit

  • If u people consider any movie is good or bad according to the box office, then in our country, JTYJN worked at Awal Cinema WHICH THEY SHOW ONLY INDIAN MOVIES just for a week! But LS2050 is still working and for the 2nd week.

    IF GENELIA CALLS HER BROTHER (YOU.. SON OF A BITCH) DOES THIS GIVE A GOOD EXAMPLE OF A COLLEGE GIRL’S ETHICS?! HOW YOU ALL IGNORED ALL THE BAD STUFF IN THIS CRAP MOVIE?! SON OF A BITCH WHICH MEANS HER MOTHER IS A BITCH!

  • Dear Fathiya – With all due respect to your sentiments….can you please do us all a favour??

    Why dont you give yourself and US a break? Why dont you just hibernate??

    Much appreciated ;)

  • I’ve seen Lovestory 2050 many times and I still want to see it again. It may be surprising, but I loved the first part of it. Cuz it was romantic. The second part was very nice too, especially the special effects!.. I haven’t seen such effects in any hindi movie.. and to all you ”decent,respectable,nice,polite” people. Why are u using such dirty language? haven’t u guys heard og polite talk?! Its seriously irritating!!!!!!
    flop film.flop film. damn, I’ve heard this a million of times now,,.. but yet I don’t agree! I loved Love Story 2050, and im gonna watch it again – For Sure!

  • I will.. I won’t write any more comments for a while or maybe this would be the last one.. I don’t know yet.. but believe me.. I’m a type of person that when I see ( a good work) and people don’t appreciate it, but appreciate a crap.. I feel so unfair or pity for those people who really worked hard e.g. (Harry Baweja) who’s still surprised and asking: Why people are attacking my movie?! (Bechara!) And he said: I did many movies already which didn’t do well at the box office but no one attacked me! So why this one?!)

    The director who spent months or sometimes years, working very hard to please people, to create something new, different.. and we.. with our pen, with our writing which won’t take more than 5 or 10 minutes would ruin these people’s work.. would ruin a young ambitious actor’s career, not only with a pen in 5 or 10 minutes..but maybe in seconds.. with what our tounge would say easily!!

    So excuse me all and I’m sorry if I bothered u with my comments but I am (aries) always defending people who deserve from me to stand by them – without asking me so and without gaining any benefit – I always fight for what is unfair. That’s me.. and this is the least I’m doing.

    And FYI, I’m a writer, wrote many articles for 13 years( in Arabic) in our local newspapers in the readers page fighting for women’s right, attacking lots of men in our society and their mentalities and defending agreived people. So What I gained from writing all these years.. and what I gained from writing on this website defending only a movie?? Nothing except feeling happy.. that’s it.

  • The movie director has crossed all limits of stupidity.Y dont ppl think or ask advise from someone with common sense before spending 50 crores?Kudos,To the “wonderful” brain who thot mumbai will be like this in another 41 years!!!What a rubbish..

  • Oh.. very clever!! after reading your comment about LS2050, so.. why the director didn’t ask (you) some advice?! OK.. dear.. why don’t u go and work as a director and show everyone if u could even do 15 minutes of the 2nd half of this movie!! Yes.. the world can’t change this way in 42 years but 100 years at least ( and I mentioned this in my previous comments) but u people don’t deserve any better movie or any new script. Every movie we watch we find some flaws, but we have to judge any movie form A-Z.. If the letter “Q” or the letter “B” didn’t satisfy us, it doesn’t mean that the whole is bad. Teach yourself first how to judge a movie then write your comment.

    You just go and watch your blockbuster movie (JTYJN) which is really stupid and not this one!

  • Omg.. I watched JTYJN.. What the hell.. I have seen such script in billions of bollywood films.. So idiotic script.. but unfortunatly publick like such scripts.. that has nothing new.. fresh face, blablabla.. what the hell .. can a fresh face win a bad script?! I don’t think so.. if the script is bad, what should we do with the fresh faces?!.. But in Lovestory 2050, the script is new with a new face! A handsome new face!!!..
    Everyone has something against LS 2050.. I dunno why!?:S

  • Guyz forget about LS 2050….go and watch the hollywood movie ”WANTED” it is awesome!!

    Has great action!

  • Shona: U R TALKING TO PEOPLE WHO R UNDER A DRUG! DRUG OF AAMIR KHAN!!EVEN IF THERE R HUNDREDS OF VIRUSES IN THIS CRAP.. THEY WON’T FEEL IT.. THEY WON’T SEE IT.. THEY WON’T SENCE IT.

    I WATCHED YESTERDAY LS2050 AGAIN IN CINEMA, AND TOLD MYSELF THAT I MIGHT BE WRONG AND PEOPLE MIGHT BE RIGHT.. SO I’VE TO SEE IT FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE AND WHILE WATCHING IT AGAIN I JUST SAID TO MYSLEF: GOD.. PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T LOVED IT R IDIOTS AND DESERVE NO GOOD MOVIES TO WATCH.

    AND BELIEVE ME.. 90% OF THE COMMENTATORS ON THIS MOVIE DIDN’T SEE IT WITH THEIRY OWN EYES AS THEY REPEAT LIKE “PARROTS” WHAT THEY HEAR AND WHAT THEY READ ONLY!, AND THEY R THE LOSERS, MISSED A BRILLIANT MOVIE TO WATCH.

    I AGREE FOR SOME MOVIES WHICH R FLOP E.G. TASHAN, AAG, MEHBOOBA, TOHDA PYAAR THODA MAGIC, LAGA CHUNARI ME DAAG, BUT I DON’T AGREE WITH THIS ONE.. IT’S ABSOLUTELY UNFAIR.

  • Fathiya

    U obviously have tons and tons of money to waste on watching a movie like LS 2050 over and over again. Are you sure you dont belong to the LS 2050’s marketing team?!! I seriously question that now!

  • Listen dear “U Name it”: As I said earlier, people’s taste is different.. people enjoy movies differently.. what u found an interesting one, I find it boring and vice versa.. what u found it excellent I found it crap and vice versa. It’s not about Bollywood only, even some Hollywood movies which r very popular and were blockbuster and every single people loved them.. I hated them.. I couldn’t say that they were (bad movies) ’cause in terms of direction & production they were excellent but ( not my type) e.g. Lord of the Ring, Harry Potter, Armagadom, X Man, The Matrix, etc. and they’re many.. but .. can I say that these movies are bad?? No ofcourse, but what I can say that I don’t enjoy these type of movies, I enjoy what’s based on true stories, drama, romantic & rich comedies and I enjoy new script, new ideas, new stories. But I consider JTYJN a bad movie ( and my opinion is not because it’s a bollywood movie.. even if it was a hollywood one also I’d have criticised it) therefore I’m surprised that it pleased people so much in a way that they couldn’t find any flaw in this movie!

    I really found LS2050 an interesting one – I don’t have to mention why as I did already – and I’m not the only one, even Shona, Richa and if u visit You Tube website, also u will find some people who praised the movie and loved Harman’s dancing and some consider him better than Imran and that’s true ’cause he was given a hard job to do as a debutant. But my question for u is the following: Did u watch this movie?? If u did then please tell me what u didn’t like about it and what u loved about JTYJN. Thanks..

    Oh.. I 4got.. I watched on line the 1st half of Kismat Konnection and found it not bad, at least better than JTYJN!

  • And one more thing to say and it’s about the movie “Saawariya” the way I’m defending now LS2050 it’s the same way I did for Saawariya. Saawariya which was a great direction, a fantastic cinematography, a movie with best music & melodies, with a love story which is based on reality – love from one side – didn’t please people and they (ignored) all the good thing in the movie and said: The movie was dark!! No external scenes, no story line!!!!
    The movie was indoors shooting and not outdoors and it was about (night life) and the director meant to do it this way to give it a new flavour. And believe me.. people didn’t enjoy it and I enjoyed it “thoroughly” and saw it 3 times in cinema.. I saw Umrao Jaan the remake also twice in cinema.. So.. does this make me a “marketing agent”?!

  • Im not gonna give up.. and to u all people who think that Fathiya is from Ls 2050 marketing team or whatever.. what the hell is wrong with u all? can’t each human being have its own opinion?!.. All people have their own opinion.. and I understand that=).. u may now ask me why I keep discussin with those people who didn’t like Ls 2050.. my answer for u is that, I understand those ppl who didn’t like LS 2050..maybe they didn’t like he script, or the music and so on.. but why the HELL do u keep saying that Harman should get lost from Bollywood?!.. He is a very very good actor, and with some experience, he can become tomorrows superstar!.. So I think , that u ppl need some patience.. im sure that he will win ur heart in his next film, Victory=).. Imran Khan is a good actor too, but as Fathiya said, he didn’t that difficoult role to play! He was just a normal guy who got love and so on.. while Harman had a much harder role to play.. Bcuz it was a sci-fi movie.. thats why I think u all should appericiate his work =)

  • U name it: you still didn’t answer my questions, and Shona ( thank u dear) we understand each other, but what I noticed by visiting this web and other websites that when u criticise a movie which everyone liked they hate u for that, they don’t hate u only..but they (swear) say very bad words!

  • Fathiya,

    For starters, what I liked about JTYJN is that it is not a ‘larger than life’ movie. It may have the same storyline that we have seen over a million times but it just the way the movie has been made (simplicity) that makes you leave the cinema feeling good unlike LS 2050 where you are left feeling as if you received a jolt from the blue leaving behind a torturous memory!!

    I know now you will retaliate by saying that what about the scene where Naseeruddin shah being a dead man speaks – here i would just like to wake your funny bone up! these scenes together with Abbas and Sohail khan scenes are lighthearted and hilarious where you know it is crap but you dont mind it coz the way everything falls in to place beautifully in the whole movie!!

    But on LS 2050 some of the scenes are just riddiculous and I just dont want to mention it as it has been already over a million times on this site!! You know what this movie does need LUCK coz it cannot survive on its poor lovestory!! This is re-phrasing Harmans dialogue ‘I dont need Luck I have love’! Does he really??

    By the way Fathiya, I thought were going to Hibernate?? But I know you wont ;) Dont mind but this is a site to voice one’s opinion and this is just a non biased opinion, nothing personal!!!

    Cheers

  • U said: “leaving the cinema and feeling good unlike LS2050” well.. u and millions of audiences left the cinema after watching JTYJN and felt good, but I didn’t have this feeling.. I wanted to leave the cinema after the interval ’cause i found it boring and didn’t accept the script and the direction of the movie but continued watching it as I hoped that the 2nd half would’ve been good. ( I think I’ve to see it on line again and judge it from your perspective) but I’m sure that my opinion will remain the same. And one more thing which didn’t convince me in the movie is the following – I didn’t mention it earlier ( and please.. all of u.. don’t misunderstand.. this is not a compition..we’re only discussing just to find out which way people judge any movie and which way they think.. that’s it)

    How a couple who r very close to each other like Aditi & Jay who hug each other – and we see in the 1st scene of the movie, where Aditi’s cat dies, Jay hugs her and she leans her head on his shoulder, as well as some other scenes too, they hug each other like couple do, the director shows the audience how these couple r close to each other.. so how couldn’t they express their feelings for each other and each one of them’s ego wouldn’t allow them to show their feelings?! This scene, the airport scene friends telling the story, the last airport scene, naseeruddin shah & khans’s scenes which u found hillarious.. excuse me if I say found them crap and didn’t convince me. In addition – and which is the worst – aditi calls amit: you.. son of a bitch!!
    I’m the one who received a jolt, while watching JTYJN!

    U Name it: One more question if u don’t mind answering me: How old are you?? ’cause the age also has something to do with our taste and the way we value any movie .. I remember that I loved some movies when I was 16years old, but after growing older and watching the same again, after 20 years, I changed my mind and didn’t find it so good.

  • 50 crores for that street-fighter/star-wars type special effects. You must be joking. I am sure there are many genius young indians livings at their basements of Mubai city, who can individualy do better job than Baweja Team at lvery low cost.
    I work for Electronic Arts (EA). Our Team has come across many Indian investors. Our first proposal was for Jodha Akbar and Lagaan on PS3, Xbox 360 and PSP. Release expected in begining 2010. Budget is done at labour and production cost only. But you can roughly take a guess, right? It will not even come near Baweja’s budget. In a meeting, our CEO stated “Idea is to invest and harvest, not to invest and waste, we are looking for smart investors, to bring great returns of our investments. We are not looking for any stupid investors like Mr. Baweja to promote his son’s career at unreasonable price.” India’s first Epic Games: Jodhaa Akbar & Lagaan.
    Get ready.

  • Fathiya – I certainly do not fall in the age group of ”the teens” nor am in the ”Twenties”. I am in my early thirties and yes I reiterate that JTYJN is a far better made movie than LS 2050. It caters not only to the college goers but also appeals to all age groups, which is why it is a feel good film and one that fills you with nostalgia of college days!!

  • U Name it: now u said what’s reasonable, I understand it more ’cause when I visited You Tube website, and switching from one video to another, reading the comments, I had a feeling that most of the visitors r youngsters, and they express their feeling for Genelia & Imran more than praising the movie.

    So I don’t blame them as it’s perfect for their age.

    Sorry if I bothered u all but when u watch lots of movies and years passes, u can judge better. I will give u an example: If u remember the movie Taj Mahal for Akbar Khan which wasn’t even released on dvd disks as it was a disaster as everyone said. So today, and just b4 30 minutes, I found it on a website for movies. I watched Part I so I knew that the movie quality is really (bad) and the direction is poor ( we can feel this when any movie starts, from the first 15 minutes, so is Tashan, Aag, Darling, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, Family, all these movies which were flop and deserved to be flop)

    But Love Story 2050.. ( and Saawariya) no.. I don’t agree ’cause the direction, the production, the special effects, the script, the music, the costume, all were just great, therefore I don’t agree with any review & with people’s comments as I saw it and it deserved to be one of best movies of 2008. It really deserves ( some minor flops never affect any good movie) and why people didn’t feel all the good stuff in this movie?! that’s what I don’t understand yet.. maybe (the clash) between the 2 movies is the main reason, as happened with OSO & Saawariya, the director chose a wrong date for the release so he lost. That could be the main reason and in addition, that JTYJN is Aamir Khan’s production, therefore, people believed in Aamir and didn’t want to se Baweja’s.

    I’m sure if JTYJN wasn’t released at this period of time, this movie would’ve been a blockbuster. Just go and watch it again and you’ll find it really worthy

  • Fathiya – Atleast we have one common liking – SAAWARIYA!! I liked the movie as well and agree that the timing for release was not ideal!
