London, Paris, New York
London Paris New York is a film that captures the angst of the twenties, the most dramatic period of one's life - when you have to find a career, you have your first significant relationship and most importantly form your identity in this world. This is story about Lalitha, a middle class south Indian girl from Chembur (an eastern suburb in Mumbai) who is on her way to New York to study politics with full scholarship, and Nikhil, a Punjabi, rich kid from Bandra (a posh western suburb of Mumbai) who is going to study Film Making in London on 100% dad's money. They decide to hangout together one evening in London and find that they are completely drawn to each other even as their future lies on separate continents. The film follows their personal journey and their love story as they meet in London, Paris and New York for a night each over eight years. The film is in three chapters and each chapter is shot in a manner that mirrors the mental state of Nikhil and Lalitha.
London, Paris, New York : A simple straight sight seeing tour, with less focus on tourist attractions than it should have been. Its nice for both the leads to go roam the countries at the expense of the producer.
Aditi Rao Hydari is much better compared to Ali Zafar. Its boring to see him try to act. However towards the end their chemistry is better.
Its one easy thing writing about these films, even if you write full pages or leave it vague like I am doing here, does not make much of a difference.
A romcom with a modern twist. Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari play a modern couple who meet for one day only in each of the three cities over a space of six years. They kiss, they make love, they fight, as they are unmoored from parents and conventions back home. Zafar also wrote the songs and the stars did their own singing without Auto-Tune and no big dance numbers.
Glossy to look at, with some nice songs, but the story and acting didn't work for me.
