Teri Meri Kahaani – Review

by Capt. Samarth Singh on June 24th, 2012

NO SPOILER ALERT – This article speaks of the movie’s plot, and touches upon some very basic aspects of the storyline, nothing that spoils the movie for you. Read on …

Starring: Priyanka Chopra, Shahid Kapoor

After loads of contemplation, and hopes that could hardly be defined as high, Teri Meri Kahaani seems like a very well blended movie. Director Kunal Kohli may have faltered a little on the sets, a little on the story bit you’ve got to hand it to the man for blending it all together amazingly well!

Teri Meri Kahaani is comprised of 3 different mini-stories with 3 different scenarios played in 3 different times, namely pre-independence 1910, 1960 and 2012. Not many may like this, its isn’t very convincing that all 3 mini-stories feature Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor falling in love within a matter of minutes!

The movie starts off a little slow with the 1960 scenario and while the Director has tried to portray an accurate picture of 1960 Bombay, hasn’t done a good enough job, given the kind of work we see Hollywood doing nowadays. Most of it looks computer generated, “in the face!” But nevertheless, to the not so tuned eye, good job. The pace doesn’t really pick up till scenario 2, which is set in Great Britain and Scenario 3 and arguably everybody’s favourite, Lahore in 1910 and a very gorgeous, very sexy looking Shahid in a pathani suit.

One of the biggest downsides of the movie has got to be the song sequences. This is a short, snappy state of affairs, DO AWAY with the songs!

All 3 scenarios feature a very flamboyant Shahid and a very pretty Priyanka Chopra. Teri Meri Kahaani has something for every age group. Its definitely worth a watch, and we rate it a 4.5 on 5. Watch out for the end where the Director’s very convincingly created a silent link between the three scenarios and what a job he’s done!

Upsides: Energetic in a lot of places, original idea, well blended, good looking star cast, some great acting by Shahid

Downsides: Sets could be a lot better, accents leave a lot to be desired, female outfits for the 1960 timezone are all wrong, many factual errors, too much of singing and dancing

Verdict: 4.5 /5
