Auntyji, auntyji get up and dance!! 'Ek mein aur ek tu' reviewed

Ek mein aur ek tu brings back the joy of light hearted fun. A crisp 2 hour film, it is quirky, witty and new age. Much like the Kutcher-Diaz film, the story starts with the 2 strangers meeting on a crazy night in Vegas and end up getting married. I am happy to report, that's where the similarities end. Imran and Kareena thereafter find a friend in each other and more importantly, find themselves.

In an interview of Johar, I once read that he waited for Kareena's dates because only she could do justice to this role. I concur. There is a thin line between cute and annoying and this role played by anyone else could have fallen flat. Thankfully, it didn't and yet again the actress has given a performance which is endearing, real and thoroughly enjoyable. Surprisingly, Imran has also acted pretty well. I am usually not a big fan of his acting powress but this role seems to have been written for him.

Like most new Johar films, EMAET is scripted fabulously. The dialogues are witty and the characters believable. The music score of the film is fun and never for a moment do you get bored. And auntyji auntyji is my favourite song henceforth! But most of all, this movie wins because it dares. It dares to have an unlikely climax (or anticlimax)..very unbollywood!

I really liked the film. Its cute, fun and a good watch. If your boyfriend or husband doesn't want to watch a romantic comedy, take your friends..or as I did, your mom. An evening well spent!
