Break ke Baad (2010) - Break toh banta hai!
Posted by Mansi Dutta
I always thought Deepika couldn't act. One up for her! She lives up to my expectations. She s-p-e-a-k-s her dialogues. Poker face. (Oh, I think she does move her brow once in a while - or is it just a twitch? And, how about getting a better hair stylist next time, Deepika?
Not sure what explains Imran's blank expressions in some frames, but he was definitely more tolerable than Deepika. Charming in a few scenes. He looked his best in I Hate Love Storys, but.
Here's the plot. Imran, the good guy, is least ambitious unlike his chuddy buddy Aaliya (Deepika). He's not sure what he wants in life (like most of us). All he's really sure about, is Aaliya. (Aw, that's sweet!) He loves her to pieces. She loves him but is as sure about what she wants in life. An aspiring actress (even in the film ;) she moves to Australia to study. Imran, who can't imagine life without her, breaks on hearing this.
I won't say watch the movie to see what follows. The first half an hour is painfully slow and boring. Keep no expectations from what ensues. Besides the first few minutes, all I really liked were the last ten. I wish that's where the film had begun. Music by Vishal Shekhar, is mediocre at best.
If you have seen the film, take a break (or indulge yourself in better films ;) if you haven't, don't book the tickets just yet. Wait for the DVD!
