HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI LACKS SOUL

Story: Vasudha's (Vidya Balan) husband, Hari (Rajkummar Rao) disappears, leaving her holding their baby alone for almost five years. But she gets a chance at love again when she meets the hotel tycoon, Aarav (Emraan Hashmi) who falls for her hook, line and sinker.

Review: So a seeped-in-tradition, middle-class florist Vasudha is married off to a boorish tourist taxi-driver, Hari by her priest father. The father is a two-faced man; a pujari outside and a 'wife-beater' at home. Despite a word of caution from her mother, Vasudha, who is brain-washed to believe that pati is indeed parmeshwar (husband is God); continues putting up a world of make-believe for her young son Saanjh. An arrangement of white Lilys in Aarav's suite plays cupid between the Vasudha and Richie Rich. He literally follows the fragrance and finds that besides the scent, even the florist has a heady effect!

Since Hari, the husband is in no hurry to return, Aarav offers Vasudha a job and eventually his hand. Tempted by the sunshine, she gives in. But before she can bask in the glory of Aarav's love, her husband, who is falsely accused of being a 'terrorist', comes home to raise hell. Torn between husband and paramour; Vasudha walks the tight rope of emotions. As does the audience, whose patience is wearing thin. The plot offers the viewer a whirlwind tour of scenic locations. But to what avail? Emraan's back-story lacks depth. While middle-class values are to be lauded; the writing of HAK comes unstuck. A long-suffering women like Vasudha, who finally walks away wastes too many years in finding her identity.

At a time when we are celebrating a thinking Piku, a rebellious Tanu and her spirited twin Datto; why do we need women characters who whimper? HAK's moments come from its lead cast who pitch in their best for the most part. The music is a soothing balm. Suri should know that even cinema Goliaths cannot rise above the written word.
