Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Movie Review: A perfect V Day gift
The movie is fast, pacy, emotional and funny. What more can anyone ask from a two-hour movie? Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu has everything in the right proportion and is sure to keep the audience hooked.

THE ROMANTIC drama Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is the perfect gift to a loved one as the film is entertaining, funny and has a smart script. Although all romantic comedies are quite predictable yet stories that stand out are the ones that make a film memorable. Will Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu be remembered is difficult to say but for now it is a film full of entertainment.

After Bodyguard and Ra One (where Kareena was playing second fiddle) she has made a comeback into her forte with this film. A movie about two strangers, very different from each other, getting wasted and marrying in Vegas. Familiar? Well if anyone is making the connection with What Happened in Vegas should stop it right there as that is where the story also stops resembling the Hollywood rom com. Imran Khan plays the character of Rahul Kapoor, who is the perfect marriage material, who brushes his teeth three times a day, goes to bed by 9 and is practically boring.

Inspite of being the perfect boy, he gets sacked from his job and becomes especially rebellious on one night. The same night he meets Riana Braganza, Kareena’s character, who is carefree, has a ‘give a damn attitude’ and is practically everything that Rahul is not. She has been dumped by a boyfriend and in order to get over her heartbreak wants to drink the whole night long. As everyone is guessing they somehow end up together, get drunk, married and fall in love with a minor heart ache to be followed by their happily ever after.

The film, however, is more than a girl meet boy story. Kareena is in her element and while many would make a comparison with her Geet, as Riana, she is a smart adult with just a streak of rebel in her. She knows the way of life and can never be fooled like Geet as she is not vulnerable and yet makes all the mistakes adults make (think that love is a four lettered word, yet fall in it).

Imran’s body language, which is more often stiff with one expression, has actually helped him in this film. What appears to be his usual discomfort outside the studio has added to the character, who is facing life outside a routine with a girl, who according to him is outrageous. His good boy look and mannerisms has taken the character to a new level and the film is basically his journey and his evolution from a shy to a carefree man.

Shakun Batra has made Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu a delight to watch. With good Vegas-like scenes as well as Mumbai looking at its best, the ambience of the film is hip, chic and very young. Thus, a perfect way to celebrate February 14 is to watch this film, which is made for complete entertainment.
