Gaurav Mehra(Girish) and Pooja Misra(Navneet Dhillon) end up in bed on their first date. Their love story then takes twists and turns of a different kind.
Vaibhav Misra sets out to tell you, what according to him, is an unconventional Bollywood story. Honestly the premise is such a farce and seems so forced that even the so called bold plot leaves you cold.
Unlike most Bollywood films that show you how boy meets girl, sings songs and then takes her to mummy; here the hero and his two sidekicks, who claim they are Loveshhuda (whatever!) get wasted at Gaurav's bachelor party. Of course the groom-to-be doesn't know how, but he ends up sleeping with a pretty art student from London called Pooja. In his drunken state he also ends up confessing to her how he hates the thought of marrying Vandana, the shrew he is engaged to. Her advice to him is that he should listen to his heart. But the family honour looms large. And so Gaurav marries Vandana, who makes his life a living hell. A few years later they divorce.
Cut to India. Pooja is now engaged to be married to a co-worker. For her bachelorette, she ends up in Mauritius. Guess, what? Here she meets Gaurav and once again they cannot stay away from one another. Aha! Nothing wrong, except that the distance between the two times this couple want to jump into bed is played out through countless songs and meaningless situations. Of the songs—peene ki tamana and dono ke dono are the hummable sort. But the humour is missing.
The script that is inspired by the Hollywood franchise Hang Over and the Hindi franchise Pyar Ka Punchnama comes unstuck. The whole "not being able to remember what I did in my drunken state," and reliving the scenario the next morning has no deja vu. Instead, it's a terrible mishmash of nothingness. Also for a romantic film to go boom, there should be real passion between its lead players. Individually the boy and the girl aren't too bad but where is the chemistry between you, guys? You cannot ignite a spark here, leave alone a flame.
लवशुदा को पहले वैलंटाइंस डे के आसपास थिएटर्स पर आना था, लेकिन रिलीज न होने पर मेकर्स ने इसी वीक फिल्म को रिलीज कर दिया। फिल्म की कहानी में कुछ नयापन नहीं है। शादी से पहले बैचलर पार्टी के सब्जेक्ट पर अब तक दर्जनों फिल्में बन चुकी हैं, लेकिन बॉक्स ऑफिस पर इन फिल्मों ने कभी अच्छा बिज़नस नहीं किया। इस फिल्म में एकबार फिर ऐसा दिखाया गया है, लेकिन कमजोर स्क्रिप्ट के साथ कमजोर निर्देशन के चलते फिल्म यूथ के साथ कनेक्ट नहीं कर पाई।
कहानी : गौरव मेहरा (गिरीश कुमार) की शादी होने वाली है। गौरव लंदन में अपनी पूरी फैमिली के साथ रहते हैं। गौरव की फैमिली में उसकी दीदी और जीजा हैं। शादी से पहले गौरव के दोस्त बैचलर पार्टी करना चाहते हैं। इसमें गौरव की मुलाकात पूजा (नवनीत कौर) से होती है। गौरव और पूजा भी इसी मस्ती के माहौल में ड्रिंक करते हैं और बेड तक पहुंच जाते हैं। कुछ ही दिनों में गौरव की शादी है, ऐसे में गौरव और पूजा लंदन से दूर दिल्ली जाने का फैसला करते हैं।
ऐक्टिंग : गिरीश ने अपनी पिछली फिल्म के मुकाबले अच्छी ऐक्टिंग की है। नवनीत कौर और टिस्का चोपड़ा की ऐक्टिंग अच्छी है। वहीं सचिन पिता के किरदार में जमे हैं।
निर्देशन : कहानी और स्क्रीनप्ले खुद डायरेक्टर वैभव मिश्रा ने ही लिखा है। इंटरवल के बाद में ऐसा लगता है जैसे वैभव बैचलर लाइफ की 'लवशुदा' छोटी सी कहानी को बेवजह खींचते जा रहे हैं। गौरव और पूजा का बार-बार मिलना और बिछड़ना अस्सी नब्बे के दशक की फिल्मों की याद दिलाता है।
संगीत : फिल्म का एक गाना पीने की तमन्ना रिलीज से पहले ही हिट है। इस फिल्म के साथ एक म्यूजिक कंपनी का नाम भी जुड़ा है। ऐसे में फिल्म के गानों का फिल्मांकन अच्छा हुआ है।
क्यों देखें : फिल्म की लोकेशन काफी अच्छी हैं। इस फिल्म को देखने के लिए यही एक बड़ी वजह है।
The assumption that all modern-day love stories are triggered by one-nighters has fuelled many romcoms. This one borrows from many and ends up as The Hangover meets DDLJ.
Gaurav (Girish Kumar) and Pooja (Navneet Kaur Dhillon) first meet each other at his bachelor party in London, and four years later, at her bachelorette in Mauritius. What draws them together isn't clear but in both instances, they wake up the following day next to each other in the buff. Copious amounts of vodka plays cupid and there's something about listening to the heart and believing in one's ability to fly. All this is somehow metaphorically pokes at Gaurav's regimented upbringing, helmed by his elder sister (Tisca Chopra), who calls the shots in the family. In the second half, Gaurav has an outburst and overthrows familial authority to hunt his dulhaniya down.
Two-films-old, Girish Kumar is as compelling as the next son-of-aproducer starring in a home production. He's tolerable in the second half but that's if you get past the first. Navneet Kaur Dhillon doesn't particularly disappoint but this film isn't the launch pad that will further her film career.
A novel theory suggested in the film is that faces of ageing seniors bear tells of decisions taken earlier in life. A frowning glory equals to having compromised with one's wishes. A delightful smile means the person has followed his/her heart. The moral? Don't give up on your dreams or be sour-faced for life.
'Chitta kukkad', a Punjabi wedding number, had to be shot minus the volume at a hotel in Mauritius as per the management’s diktat.
Navneet sprained her ankle while rehearsing her steps for a beach party song. She relied on painkillers and muscle relaxants to shoot the track the following morning.
During the Mauritius schedule, Girish would get delicious kebabs for the entire unit. Initially, they were curious to know where he had bought them from, but he refused to name the outlet. Later, as long as they were treated to kebabs regularly, they didn’t complain.
The song 'Dono ke dono' single had to be shot on an island. Five hundred dancers, a crew of over 80 members, generators that would supply power to the equipment and Pyro techniques needed for the setting had to be ferried via motorboats. Everyone would leave the hotel at 2.30 am to start shooting at 8 am. There wasn’t any room for delay as they had to wrap up the shoot by 5.30 pm every day.
During the London schedule, the lead pair had to shoot near the Thames River though the temperature was minus 12 degrees. They had to grin and bear it as the scene didn’t require them to wear woollen clothes.
While shooting the film’s climax, every time the crew stepped out, it started to rain. So they rescheduled it for another day and finished other indoor scenes. They finally shot the climax after five days.
The party track 'Peene ki tamanna' was shot at a real pub. One of the key shots required 20 champagne bottles to be shaken and sprayed all over Girish. Director Vaibhav Misra wanted him to be surprised so the actor was kept in the dark. He sportingly took the onslaught and indulged in some serious craziness giving the song its perfect vibe.
Shooting for the song Mar jaayen turned out to be a nightmare. The car ferrying the camera broke down and the light truck couldn’t reach the location. The shoot was delayed further as the generator van’s driver had forgotten his keys at home. This was followed by a storm which caused havoc. Finally, the crew had no option but to bow down to nature and film the track later.
The film marks Bollywood debut of Femina Miss India World 2013 Navneet Kaur Dhillon.
The film was slated to release on January 29, 2016, which was postponed to February 5, 2016. The release date was shifted again to February 19, 2016.
The film marks return of Girish Kumar to the silver screen after three years. He was last seen in 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' playing the lead.
A love story that starts in bed! - Now isn't that as enticing as it gets?
For Gaurav Mehra (Girish) and Pooja Misra (Navneet), it could well have been a one night stand, only to be erased over a period of time. However, when there is a lot more to it with dancing, talking and making merry accompanied drinking, partying and making love, there's bound to be a connect. A connect which is subconscious, only to be realized when destiny has its own games to play.
The film begins in London, when Gaurav's friends arrive for his wedding with Vandana (Puja Panchkoty), a jewellery designer. The night before his W-Day, the guys celebrate his last as a bachelor, with wine, women and song. The following morning, he wakes up in his hotel room with Pooja (Navneet) and he can't remember a thing. Hangover, anyone?
With his doting elder sisters calling him to start getting ready for his rituals and Pooja unable to find her top, he hurriedly hands her a shirt so she can leave. Later, when his Garima didi (Tisca Chopra, a wedding cards designer) tells him that the shirt his mother-in-law gave for the engagement is kept ironed in his wardrobe does he realise that he's given it to Pooja and he has to find her to get it back.
After his friends arrive, they set out to find Pooja and get his shirt back. Fortunately, he does, when CCTV footage from a coffee shop near their party spot gives an idea where he can find her.
While on their way to her room, Pooja narrates to Girish all that transpired the previous night -- including his bad-mouthing Vandana. After returning his shirt, she suggests he follow his heart and do what his heart feels is right. Nonetheless, he goes back and gets married to Vandana.
Four years later, he's divorced and living with his sisters in Delhi. While they're after him to get married again, he goes with his friends' suggestion for a holiday in Mauritius. That's where he sees Pooja again. Turns out, she's there for her bachelorette with her gal pals. Nevertheless, they party together and he realises he's in love with her. However, she's decided to marry Vinayak an architect and a colleague (Yashodhan Pandit), who's been pursuing her for two years.
When he returns home, he sees his sisters are hosting a party and have even decided to hook him up with a friend. That's when he remembers that one of the wedding cards Garima had shown to him was of Pooja and Vinayak's shaadi. He takes it and along with some clothes he's packed, leaves home to find her.
Gaurav reaches Shimla (Pooja's hometown) on the night of her ring ceremony, hoping to talk to and win her over. At the venue, he bumps into Vandana and they have an altercation.
After the ceremony, Pooja and he go out for a drive, when he tries to reason with her, remaining her the lesson she taught him before his wedding -- Khush Rehna Bahut Mushkil Hai, But It's Worth It.
They return back to her house and the following morning, wake up in bed, just like their first meeting. Whether she marries Vinayak or decides to spend the rest of her life with Gaurav forms the climax.
SPOILER ALERT AHEAD:
Just as they return to her home, Gaurav has driven over Pooja's father Anand's (Sachin Khedekar) precious flowers and damaged a portion of the garden. Later, they enjoy some romantic moments in the snowfall, before retiring to her room.
Pooja wakes up to her mother knocking on her room's door, asking her to get ready for her pre-wedding ritual. She hides Gaurav in her wardrobe and asks him to stay put till she's back.
But after a while of waiting, the restless Gaurav tries to get out of her house, trying to avoid bumping into her father. Just as he's driving out, Anand sees him and calls out to him. But he drives away, ignoring his calls.
Meanwhile, Pooja has finished the ritual and while seeking elders' blessings, remembers her four-yer-old meeting with Gaurav --- when she told him that the people around who were smiling had no regrets, while those with grim faces seemed to have lots to rue. Her mother and granny ask why she's not happy and as she's turning, Anand comes and she can't control her tears. He comforts her saying 'It's okay'.
Cut to a dhaba on the outskirts where Gaurav is sitting with Kunal and talking about Pooja, when his friend spots Vinayak's baraat bus. Seeing him there, Gaurav realises Pooja didn't get married to him and walks towards Vinayak, who punches him. But he hugs him nevertheless and rushes to meet Pooja.
He parks his car outside and sneaks back into her room, and the lovers unite once again, this time forever.
