On Saturday 1 Aug 2009 , my girl friend AJ and I, with much anticipation (and equipped with plenty of sustenance), flocked to watch ‘LOVE AAJ KAL’ at the cinema. My verdict? Superb. I laughed, I cried, I ‘twisted’ and I ‘aahuned’. I am not going to spoil the show for you and tell you how the story pans out. Obviously, it’s about love – What I will say is that its about how 'love' is now and how it was back then, in the ‘good old days’. Has much changed since our youth, that of our parents and that of our children???? In my opinion,‘love’ will always be ‘love’, be it today, in the past or in the future. The difference is how we approach it and how much emphasis we place on feelings. Word of advice – make sure you have the hanky handy.
So, what do I give this movie? 4.5 Stars.....can’t wait for it to come out on DVD, that’s for sure.
By the way, I have listed the cast of the major roles below. Neetu Singh made a cameo appearance in the movie and she’s still looking good!
* Saif Ali Khan as Jai Vardhan Singh/ young Veer Singh
* Rishi Kapoor as ‘mature age’ Veer Singh
* Deepika Padukone as Meera Pundit
* Giselle Monteiro as Harleen Kaur
* Florence Brudenell-Bruce as Jo
* Rahul Khanna as Vikram
* Neetu Kapoor nee Singh as ‘mature age’ Harleen Kaur
