Review: Kaisey Kahein
Eventually if Kaisay Kahein makes your two hours-plus at the multiplex a bit worthwhile, it’s for Neha Julka who comes up with a sensitive, eye-catching performance, writes Khalid Mohamed.movie reviews Updated: Aug 25, 2007 14:55 IST
Cast: Rajveer Dutt, Neha Julka
Direction: Mohit Hussein
Oh oh, you’re out there feeling quite jet-lagged between London and Mumbai. A hotshot international TV reporter – she even covers a gay disco conference – and a blossoming England-domiciled banker decide that they are in love. Then they decide that they are not, then they are, then they are not.
Next: Banker babu (Rajveer Dutt) continues to sit a table with a sultry lady boss who asks, “Do you know why rabbits are vegetarian?” He doesn’t. TV starling lands up in Mumbai to become a bureau chief. Too much.
And what do you know? Her mother Zarina Wahab (it’s a week for moms), drops by to tell her very gravely, “Love doesn’t come with a lifetime guarantee” and even more pithily, “Mankind has invented so many machines but none to measure the weight of love.” Wow.
Anyway banker and bureau chief miss each other sorely. They are flanked by concerned chums but finally the love-hate-love pair must take a call whether to prioritise their careers or their private lives. And whether they’re cut out for Leicester Square or Hutatma Chowk. Sad.
Mohit Hussein’s direction is workmanlike. Eventually if Kaisay Kahein makes your two hours-plus at the multiplex a bit worthwhile, it’s for Neha Julka who comes up with a sensitive, eye-catching performance. For the rest of the way, it’s Kyon, Kabhi aur Kaisay Kahein?.
