Our critic is in the theatre now catching the first show of the day. She takes us through Yash Chopra's last romantic journey as it unfolds. Follow the action below for a vicarious viewing of the film!


The Story
We meet all three characters. An army-man's diary reveals his life through a diary. His life in London, waiting tables and falling in love with a moneyed businessman's daughter Meera (Katrina Kaif). In an outdated twist, she is all set to marry a boy of her father's choice. With her mom having left her at age 12 to re-marry, Meera is unsure about the meaning of love!

The Romance
Katrina and SRK have definite chemistry but their romance is unconvincing. She lives in a castle-like home, he shares a grungy room with a Pakistani room-mate. This disparity is never discussed between them and never crosses their mind!


Meera often prays to Jesus and offers something (I'll never eat chocolates, if...). This ridiculous belief has repercussions that strike one as being hardly conflict-worthy!

While the film attempts to show a new-age yash chopra heroine -- she's sitting at board meetings, smoking, and has no hang-ups about pre-marital sex -- she still cannot marry against daddy's will!

Stay tuned for more right here!
