Movie Review: Kyon Ki (H)

Genre: Drama

Plot Outline:

Anand (Salman) is admitted to an asylum where Dr. Tanvi (Kareena), her father (Om Puri) & Dr. Sunil (Jackie Shroff) are psychiatrists. Tanvi learns of Anand’s tragic past of his lover Maya’s (Rimi Sen) death and the murder charge on him. Whilst helping his recovery, the two fall in love against the wishes of her father. The Official Website calls it “A passionate love story, twisted by fate at its imaginative best”.

Comment:

The story traces its lineage to Hollywood’s ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest’ which Priyadarshan has portrayed in ‘Thalavattam’ (Malayalam) and ‘Kyon Ki’. Although some called it a comedy, I would call it a tragedy. Jokes involving the mentally challenged are history. The melodramatic climax actually leaves the viewer nauseating. Character development is poor with lead pair’s love and chemistry hardly noticeable.

Salman is bearable and Kareena though plump looks adorable in sarees. Om Purie, Jackie Shroff and Rimi are passable. Sunil Shetty’s cameo was avoidable. Of the songs, ‘Kyon ki itna pyar’ and ‘Dil Keh Raha Hai’ are worthy. Priyadarshan could rather stick to comedies like Hungama or Garam Masala for better BO success.

Rating: 4/10 – For: Kareena & Romania; Against: Melodrama & Poor chemistry
