This Valentine’s Day, Imtiaz Ali brought the second installment of his 2009 superhit movie with the same name Love Aaj Kal. It had Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles. It was one of the most well-received movies by Imtiaz Ali. After 11 years, Imtiaz brought Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan together. But the movie has a complicated story that audiences may not like.
Love Aaj Kal Story
The movie has two stories that run simultaneously from past and present. In the present story, we see Zoe played by Sara Ali Khan and Veer portrayed by Kartik Aaryan. Zoe is a happy go lucky girl who wants to enjoy her life and pursue her career. She wants to open her own event management company before gets into a serious and committed relationship. Zoe meets Veer and they both started dating each other. But Zoe’s importance is her career and she does not want to involve in a serious relationship. The second story is of the past between Raghu and Leena played by Kartik Aaryan and debutant Arushi Sharma. Randeep Hooda is narrating the story similar to Rishi Kapoor from previous Love Aaj Kal. What will happen in both stories? Will their love succeed? Watch out the movie.
Love Aaj Kal Review
Imtiaz Ali is coming after two movies that do not impress the audience much, Tamasha and Jab Harry Met Sejal. From Love Aaj Kal he wants to again rule the audience hearts. The hype of the movie was in a boom. It is releasing on Valentine’s Day and Kartik Aaryan Sara Ali Khan’s kissing scene also gone viral. But unfortunately, the script disappoints. The story of the movie is complicated and audiences are not able to connect with it. Kartik Aaryan impressed with his performance of both Raghu and Veer. Randeep Hooda stood out with his performance, though his screen space as less among the four actors.
Sara Ali Khan is maturing as an actor and with every passing scene, she looks bold and mature. Debutant Arushi Sharma looked natural and grabs the audience’s attention with her dialogues. Imtiaz Ali tried to put the love stories of Aaj (now) and Kal (then), but the screenplay is not up to the mark. The soundtracks are good and adds flavor to the story. When it was asked by Saif Ali Khan about Love Aaj Kal, he told that his starring Love Aaj Kal was 10 times better than this one. Honestly, he was right as it failed to connect with the audience.
We give Love Aaj Kal 2.5 stars out of 5. Have you watched the movie? Whose acting impressed you most? Let us know in the comments below.
