Having heard a fair amount of negative reviews about Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, I decided to check it out for myself today evening. A mid-term Cost Accounting exam in the afternoon made the movie all the more desirable. Off we went, Vinayak, Darshan, and myself. We were just in time (or perhaps, as a management student I should say JIT) to catch the 18:25 show.
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna is a movie on an awkward subject – marriages that turn sour and what happens when such a married person falls in love with someone else’s wife. It’s a bold theme and is sure to draw mixed reactions from an audience. The plot is laid out well right up to the end. However, I failed to understand the significance of shooting the movie abroad. Why not shoot in India? That said, the acting is highly commendable. It’s not easy to act convincingly in such a movie where emotions needs to appear genuine. I particularly liked Rani Mukherjee’s performance. You tend to somehow connect with her in the movie. The songs are quite decent as well.
This movie is a MUST see. If you already have, I would love to hear your thoughts.
