Ramaiya Vastavaiya is an old story with new look
Ramaiya Vastavaiya is a story knitted around a youngster Ram, played by Girish Kumar, who is an Indian boy bought up in Australia and falls in love with Sona, played by Sruthi Hassan, who initially rejects him. Sona is Ram's cousin's best friend and lives on the fields of Punjab, and after much persuasion by Ram she also falls in love with him. But Ram's mother (Poonam Dhillon) doesn't want her son to marry a poor girl.

But Ram follows Sonu to her village, where her elder brother (Sonu Sood), challenges him to produce more seeds on their fields. Besides the lead pair, the movie has an ensemble cast including Randhir Kapoor, Satish Shah, Vinod Khanna, Paresh Ganatra and Nassar. This film also has Jacqueline Fernandez's, item no. 'Jadu ki Jhaapi' to grab the eye balls, reported nnis.

The movie is inspired from Prabhu Deva's Telugu directorial debut 'Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana', which is a mix of 'Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya' and 'Maine Pyar Kiya'. A cinegoer who saw the movie, said, “The film is very good, as in comedy it is very good. As in debut I think Girish has done a good job. Music is good, direction is very nice, I think there is a flavour of South film in it. Finally, its an average film, one time watch, you can go with your family and laugh.

On one side, where the audience are saying that, its an awesome movie, it's like the 'Paisa is double wassool' the locations are mind blowing. But on the other side the film critics have given a negative review to it and termed it as 'old wine in a new bottle'.

Finally, it is a crazily cluttered movie and one can manage to enjoy it. The story is nothing extraordinary. Apart from some melodious songs, it's the humor and some likable performances by the actors that help you sail through the film. The newcomer Girish Kumar has tried to give his best, but the leading lady Shruti Haasan looks beautiful in the film and carries off the girl-next-door image quite well. You can watch 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya' if you have a taste of enjoying the 80s and 90s romantic films.
