Kismat Konnection Movie Review
The story starts with a regular day in a not so lucky guy Raj’s life. He meets his ladylove Priya and things start improving. How his life changes and he meets success forms the crux of the story. And how it is narrated to us becomes nearly a nightmare for us.
Predictable at most of the times, it still keeps us glued to the seat for the first one hour. Will the underworld goon threaten Raj’s life for the money he lended? What would happen when the truth is revealed to Priya that she was just his lucky charm? Will Raj meet success if Priya marries her fiance and leaves him?
The next one hour you just wait and wait for the movie to end. Post-interval it gets so slow that you stop emphasizing with the lead protagonist and you even stop caring about what happens next.
Raj Malhotra reminds you of Raju from ‘Raju ban gaya gentleman’ and Aditya Kashyap of ‘Jab We Met’. Priya reminds you of Jahnvi from ‘Lage raho…’ and her entire ‘save community center’ track feels like a sequel to it. Music is good but the songs are average. The only dance number worth watching and dancing to comes at the end during the credits. The actors Vishal Malhotra(who plays Shahid’s friend Hiten), Om Puri, Himani Shivpuri and Juhi Chawla have done justice to their roles. Tellywood actors Karnvir as Dev and Amit Verma as Karan are praiseworthy. Hope to see them in many more Bollywood projects. But Vidya Balan and Shahid Kapur’s acting talents are wasted. They are the only saving grace of this dis-Konnected movie. A little more care in the screenplay and this movie would have done wonders. The look and feel is good but the soul is missing. The slow track makes you yawn and crib at this two and half hour movie which seems to end never.
A 2.5/5 rating for a movie which could otherwise have been a 4. Watch it if you have absolutely nothing else to do this weekend, otherwise you could as well give it a skip and savor the trailers and songs on TV.
